Some sad news for the thirsty dudes out there who love Legends Football League action: there will be more fabric covering up your favorite players in the near future — but don’t freak out!
The LFL announced on Tuesday that they partnered up with athletic wear company, Candle ‘n Caleb, to handle their on-field uniforms through the 2019 season. As you can see above, the skimpy LFL gear you know and love aren’t being phased out, but be on the lookout for uniform pants:
In 2017, LFL history will be made as custom designed full pants uniforms will be unveiled by each of the LFL USA teams, at their final home game. Alongside the full pants uniforms, LFL teams will be wearing more sleeker design uniforms with brighter and more engaging colors.
“The uniform is such a vital part of any athlete’s success. We will continue to evolve the uniform to meet our athletes needs as well as keeping them as safe as possible, as evident by the introduction of the full pants uniform in 2017. CandlenCaleb will be a vital partner over the next few years, as the sport prepares to go mainstream” said Mitchell Mortaza, Commissioner, Legends Football League (LFL).
Something tells us you guys will be totally okay with the new pants:
