WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (AP) - The U.S. Lingerie Football League is forgoing a 2012 season in order to expand the sport abroad and refocus it as a warm-weather game.

Spokesman Jim Wallin said Thursday the LFL will resume playing in April 2013 on a spring-summer playing schedule. He says the hiatus will also allow the league to concentrate on launching in Canada this fall and free U.S. players to participate in a promotional all-star tour.

The “All Fantasy Tour” will start in Mexico City next month, followed by dates in Sydney and Brisbane, Australia, and possibly cities in Asia later in the year.

The LFL, which is based in West Hollywood, Calif., plans to launch a league in Australia in 2013. The three-year-old LFL features all-female, seven-member teams playing in lingerie and football pads.
