Great Britain Women’s American Football team hope for gold at the European Championship

The Great Britain Women’s American Football team is searching for a gold at this year’s European Championship next week in Leeds. Can Great Britain go one better than 2015 and gain a home-field victory with the home-field advantage?

When did the journey start?

The Great Britain Women’s American Football Team was formed at the early inception of Women’s American Football in the UK in 2013.  The British Women took to the game quickly and came out on top against experienced opposition Sweden with a success in a 5-a-side international.

In 2014, the British women faced Sweden again in a full 11-a-side game this time and also get a win. Women’s Football in the UK was growing very quickly.

In 2015, they join the first time in International Tournament Football. The team went into the Tournament as the absolute underdogs inspite of putting in an impressive performance in winning their qualify over Russia.

In their first game of WEC 2015, Great Britain beat previous European Champions Germany, earned a Silver Medal and claimed second place behind a very dominant Finland side.

In the summer of 2017A they continued to finish second-place in the qualification of World Championship, and took a trip to Vancouver, Canada. They would be facing Finland in their very first game of the Tournament. Head Coach, Jim Messenger, and Great Britain Women make them the Number One Seeds in Europe by defeating the Fins at the very top of their game.

Sadly, in their match against Mexico, Great Britain fell short of securing a Bronze Medal and had to settle behind the North American teams for 4thplace.

At this year’s European Championship, Coach Messenger and his team will  attempt to make up for the pain of missing out on a World Championship Medal and hope to convert Silver into Gold.

LFL got the idea and came out of the Super Bowl. During the break during the Super Bowl matches, the girls dressed up as sexy, cheerleading girls playing with baseball balls caused a fever for TV viewers. That is one of the main reasons why the baseball game has a large number of viewers on the US television system.

LFL is a sport with a very special starting point

Mitch Mortaza – a person who has a great influence on American sports has just come up with the idea of ​​turning this form of entertainment into a real sport. Instead of bulky clothes like male colleagues, female athletes will wear underwear when competing with protective equipment at the head, elbows, elbows …

Each team will have 14 athletes, including 7 defending players and 7 others attacking. The matches will take place in 2 halves of 17 minutes each. Unlike other tournaments, the LFL mostly takes place in the fall and winter. The teams will be divided into two areas, East and West, to compete with each other. The top two teams of the region will compete in the playoffs to win the championship. In the last two seasons, the champion team has been the Los Angeles Temptation.

Most of the LFL teams are led by famous former American baseball players. Most female athletes have solid athletic foundations. Many of them have experience playing professional or semi-professional sports at universities, mainly in baseball, basketball, softball, volleyball, tennis, and athletics.

American football is seen as a cross between sport and entertainment. In the LFL, wearing undergarments is a must. Even the BTC tournament will be fined if the athlete wears discreet costumes when competing. However, to ensure the safety of the athletes, the protectors at the head, elbows, legs… are still necessary tools.

Initially, the tournament gathered 12 teams, but now it is reduced to only 7. In addition, the tournament is also held in Canada and Australia. In 2015, LFL Europe will be born with teams from Barcelona, ​​Manchester, Frankfurt, Rhein and Dublin.

Having been born nearly 7 years but since then, Legend Football League has caused mixed reactions of public opinion.

In the Football league matches, the girls are not only tasked with dressing sexy standing burning eyes audience. They also rushed to each other to compete, fight and curse like male colleagues. Tactics such as swearing at referees, throwing beer in the middle of a match or tearing pants, taking off shirts are also included in the maximum level of nothing but the purpose to customers.

According to statistics in the US, there are no less than 1 million paid subscribers to watch the matches of the Legend Football League. Meanwhile, the number of spectators coming to the stadium to watch the football matches is always very high.

Football is not the King sport in America. In the 1990s, football was even lower in the land of the Goddess of Freedom, although in 1994, the United States was the host of the World Cup finals. But Mia Hamm has always been a hot spot for American media, both on and off the pitch.

In 1997, International Soccer Business voted Mia into the Top 40 most influential people in world football, Esquire Magazine put Mia in the Top 100 influential people in the world. Along with teammate Michelle Akers, Mia Hamm was also the only two female players Pele was voted into the list of “125 Greatest Players alive”.

But Phil Knight’s evaluation of Mia Hamm is more than the same. Nike president Mia Hamm is on par with Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods, because they are both legendary icons, who opened a new trend in their sport.

Knight is not exaggerating, because since the mid-1990s, Mia has become the model of millions of young girls who love football and want to follow, including the famous junior like Alex Morgan, Hope Solo or Abby Wambach. The number of girls in American high schools playing soccer increased to nearly 10 million, exceeding the number of boys. Europe, where the most developed football in the world can not get the percentage of women playing football than men like in the United States.

Mia’s role in American football is like Michael Jordan of basketball and Tiger Woods of golf. But like other countries in the world, female players have not been recognized and invested on par with their male counterparts. So in every participating forum, Mia has always raised the flag of gender equality to fight for the rights of women in football and sports.

But not only exhortation but from the time of competition, namely in 1999, the American long-haired football legend founded a non-profit fund called the Mia Hamm Foundation. The purpose of this fund is to call for the whole society to help victims of marrow transplantation and invest, support young women to participate in training and sports.
