Los Angeles, Ca
Los Angeles, California is no stranger to the bright lights of women’s tackle football. Historic franchises have come and gone in the city over the past 50 years. The Women’s National Football Conference (WNFC) is the sports premier professional league and has been changing the outlook for women’s tackle football since its 2018 launch. With sponsorships from adidas, Riddell Sports, and other major brands, the league has made its way and helped to propel the sports to the mainstream (sponsorships and media).
The Los Angeles Legends, founded by LA native, entrepreneur, and general contractor Monique Adams is set to take on the challenge of propelling women’s tackle football to new heights in LA. Adams becomes one of very few major sports teams founded and operated by an African American woman. Adams was a standout linebacker prior to injury and knows what it takes to create a powerhouse (on and off the field) in LA.
“Bringing the Legends to Los Angeles is a dream come true. This is my home town. Women’s tackle football has lived in this city for many years without the proper attention, recognition, or growth. It is time for the city to embrace a legendary change in the landscape of professional sports. We are building something special. Something bigger than sports!” - Monique Adams - Owner LA Legends
The team is holding its first event on Saturday, Oct 2, 2021, when the league kicks off the National Try-Out Day. The Try-out day is a combine-like national event, where all WNFC teams around the country (20) will be taking their first looks at new athletes for the upcoming 2022 season. The Legends will kick off their inaugural season (April 2022) at Waller Football Stadium, in Manhattan Beach, Ca.
The team has already signed notable women’s tackle football standouts: Olivia Morgan (WR), Dawna Zike (LB), and Tina Frisby (DB/WR), and will launch with the support of notable sponsors such as AT&T and Target.
