Kelsey Bolstad just got herself a fan base.
Towards the end of 2019, the Lingerie Football League, which changed their name to the Legends Football League in 2013, made the decision to close its doors for the 2020 season. It was a sad moment for many people, but it wouldn’t last long until the league announced it would be re-branding yet again, this time to be called the Extreme Football League, or X League.
The X League was support to kick of in April, but much like other sports, it had to suspend everything due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
That hasn’t stopped the league from marketing itself. Just recently, Chicago Bliss center Kelsey Bolstad participated in a #stayhome PSA by removing her pads and coming back dressed in a very revealing dress.

The X League bills itself as a “new era in women’s empowerment.”
“In the age of female empowerment in sports, the Extreme Football League (or ‘X League’) is set to kickoff April 2020. The X League will make history prior to even playing a single game, as the league is announcing it will provide its athletes with ownership equity as they build their tenure in the sport,” reads a press release on the league’s website.
“‘This is not your father’s football league’, the X League will compromise of some of the world’s most athletic women, battling on a 70-yard field, in 7-on-7 full-contact tackle football. If you miss old school black-and-blue football, played by passionate athletes, the X League, is your league.
The 2020 season of the X League will include eight (8) teams nationally with plans for growth into twenty-four (24) US markets. The 2020 season will feature the Seattle Thunder, Los Angeles Black Storm, Austin Sound, Denver Rush, Chicago Blitz, Atlanta Empire, Nashville Knights, and Omaha Red Devils. Official team logos, colors, uniforms, and helmet designs will be unveiled in January 2020.
