The Legends Football League (formerly known as the Lingerie Football League) released the 2014 schedule last week. The defending Southeastern Division champion Atlanta Steam will open their second campaign with a road game at the Huntington Center against the Toledo (formerly Cleveland) Crush on Saturday, May 10.
After opening in Toledo, the Steam will next play on Saturday, June 7 when they host the Omaha Heart at The Arena at Gwinnett Center. Atlanta will then travel to Baltimore for a June 28 contest with the Charm at the 1st Mariner Arena before closing out the regular season with a home game against the Jacksonville Breeze.
The Steam will play both division opponents (Jacksonville and Omaha) at home.
The LFL post season will begin on Friday, August 23 with the Wildcard Round, and then the Conference Championships will follow on Saturday, August 24. The location is still to be determined.
The Legends Cup is set for Saturday, September 6.
The Steam has a new head coach and will be led by a new starting quarterback in their second season as part of the LFL, but have been preparing hard for the upcoming season. While there have been some changes in the league, the goal of the Steam remains the same-to win the Legends Cup this season and bring a LFL title to Atlanta.
The Atlanta Steam of 2014 will be very different from the 2013 version. It remains to be seen if those differences will produce a better team with a larger fan base, but it will be fun to see the second generation of the LFL experience in Atlanta.
