We believe Verizon Wireless Arena in New Hampshire provides us a great building and support staff as well as being centrally located within New England,” said Mitchell S. Mortaza, Founder & Chairman, Legends Football League.

New England Liberty will host an Open Tryout on Saturday, December 19, 11:30 a.m. at Turf Time Tewksbury, in Tewksbury, Mass. Click here to receive email updates about tryout information. The league has begun the process of interviewing coaching staffs and an announcement of a hire will be made prior to the Open Tryout. Games are played by teams of seven-on-seven tackle football.
