LWR Football League Delays Start Until 2017
Lakewood Ranch-based Major League Football, a new, professional spring-football league, recently announced 2016 will be its ‘development season’ and has rescheduled its inaugural year to begin March of 2017, according to a MLFB media release.
The statement read, in part, that “In closed-door sessions MLFB management, coaches, player representatives and the league’s business partners agreed to use the current season to further develop players, plan for staffing in cities and provide ample time for ticketing agencies and the League’s broadcasting partner to advertise and market the League’s formal kick-off in 2017.”
“Over the past four months MLFB has selected over 600 players from various tryout camps, player drafts and free agency. Throughout the 2016 ‘development year,’ the league will continue to engage the coaching staff to ensure all players will be prepared for a successful spring 2017 season on and off the field. Once formalized, Major League Football will announce and publicize a detailed Player Developmental Strategy to be executed by MLFB’s Management Team, head coaches and player representatives,” the statement read.
In addition to the $120 million it expects to receive from investors pursuant to recently announced letter of intent for financing that would provide MLFB with capital and credit line facilities, other additional investments of capital are also expected, according to an MLFB media statement.
