The Lingerie Bowl was an annual Super Bowl halftime alternative shown on pay-per-view TV. It features a game of full-contact American football with female athletes playing seven-on-seven tackle football. Lingerie Bowl I aired during Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 with Team Euphoria losing to the Team Dream by a score of 6-0. The players in the game wear helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads, knee pads, garters, bras, and panties. Lingerie Bowl II (2005) and Lingerie Bowl III (2006) were played. Lingerie Bowl IV (2007), Lingerie Bowl V (2008) and Lingerie Bowl VI (2009) were cancelled.
The halftime special has also included celebrities, national recording artists and former NFL players such as Jenny McCarthy, Dennis Rodman, Chingy, Eric Dickerson, Lawrence Taylor, Cindy Margolis, Traci Bingham, and Jim McMahon. Previous Lingerie Bowls have taken place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum drawing thousands of fans. Past marketers have included Daimler/Chrysler, Miller Brewing, Universal Pictures, Vivendi Games, Dodge, and Oakley.
Producer Horizon Productions has expanded the concept into a ten team league called the Lingerie Football League (LFL) that played its first season from September 2009 to January 2010 on Friday nights in major arenas and stadiums.

 Lingerie Bowl VI
Lingerie Bowl VI, between the Miami Caliente and the Tampa Breeze, was scheduled for January 31, 2009 to be played at Caliente Resorts, which is a nudist resort in Pasco County, Florida, but it was cancelled due to concerns that nudists would attend the game and be on television. 
 Lingerie Bowl VII
Lingerie Bowl VII featured the winners of the LFL's Western and Eastern Conference in a game played on February 6, 2010, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The game was intended to be webcast opposite Super Bowl XLIV's halftime show in Miami Gardens, Florida, on February 7, 2010. The Western Conference Los Angeles Temptation defeated the Eastern Conference Chicago Bliss by the score of 27-14. Server problems and "overwhelming internet demand" kept fans from streaming the Lingerie Bowl game video until more than an hour after the conclusion of the Super Bowl.
 Lingerie Bowl VIII
Lingerie Bowl VIII featured the defending champion Los Angeles Temptation, winners of the Western Conference, against the Eastern Conference winning Philadelphia Passion. The Temptation defeated the Passion, 26-25, at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Approximately 3,000 fans attended the game. The game returned to traditional pay-per-view television instead of the failed Internet broadcast from the previous year.
 Lingerie Bowl IX
The Orleans Arena was selected as the host venue for Lingerie Bowl IX played on February 5, 2012. The game moved to before the Super Bowl, instead of its usual halftime, to allow a full game to be played instead of the abbreviated games of previous years; the game also aired on MTV2 instead of on pay-per-view.
Two factors led to the demise of the Lingerie Bowl. The first was the relocation of the LFL's schedule from its original fall schedule to the spring, which took the game out of Super Bowl halftime. The other was the league's abandonment of the lingerie gimmick and rebranding into the Legends Football League.
