COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) - A for-profit flag football league will likely have to repay Costa Mesa tens of thousands of dollars in rental fees it avoided by registering with the city as a nonprofit organization.

The Orange County Register reports (http://bit.ly/1Ih4rh8 ) that Matt Leinart Flag Football League officials used the Matt Leinart Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit group to obtain nonprofit status with cities and school districts throughout Orange County.

As a result, the league saved thousands of dollars by paying special reduced rental fee rates.

Executive director of the Matt Leinart Foundation Ryan Leinart acknowledged that the Flag Football League is a separate entity from the Leinart Foundation.

Costa Mesa chief executive Thomas Hatch says officials are reviewing the Leinart case and will likely require repayment to the city.
