Major League Football to Announce Franchise Cities for 2016 Spring Debut

LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2015) - Major League Football, Inc. (OTCQB: MLFB) ("MLFB," the "League" or the "Company"), a new, professional spring-football league scheduled to kick off in 2016, today announced that it has reached the final stage of negotiations with prospective franchise cities and venues for their inaugural Spring 2016 football season.

Major League Football announced today that it has entered into final negotiations with 14 potential host cities for a future 2016 MLFB franchise. With play set for the Spring, MLFB has chosen to field eight teams for the upcoming season. However, with additional cities interested in hosting a MLFB franchise, the league has already engaged in expansion negotiations for the 2017 MLFB season, including a team in Mexico and Canada.

"We could not be more pleased to announce later this month the finalists for our inaugural 2016 MLFB season," said Major League Football President, Wes Chandler. "Our city selection team has done a tremendous job in building enthusiasm for our brand of football around the country. They have specifically identified which cities and venues fit our football criteria that will raise the fan experience needed to insure a community-centric approach that will support spring football for many years to come in each of these markets."

"In addition to announcing our eight finalists, MLFB will name our Head Coaches and General Managers for each of our inaugural MLFB franchises. To prepare for our upcoming 2016 MLFB draft in January, our personnel staff has conducted numerous Pro Days around the country to fill our eight rosters. To date, we are excited about the skill of these young men who have attended our Pro Days. They have displayed the kind of athletic skill and character that will become the pride of every single franchise in the MLFB community."
