Good news sports fans -- or lingerie fans. The Lingerie Football League (LFL) is coming to Gwinnett County. On Oct. 2, the LFL announced Gwinnett Center will be home to the league’s 12th team.

The LFL is currently accepting name suggestions for the new team. Fans are invited to submit possible team names to LFLinAtlanta@LFLUS.com by Friday, Oct. 19. The LFL will also host an open tryout, but the date has not yet been announced.
