St. Louis County (KSDK) -- Right now they don't have a place to play, but that didn't stop the Lingerie Football League from holding tryouts on Sunday.

About 90 women competed for a spot on the St. Louis Saints at the Vetta Sports Complex in south St. Louis County.

Organizers insist the women who tried out are serious athletes. Many played soccer or softball in high school and college.

Competition for one of the 20 spots on the roster was pretty fierce.

"Yea it was tougher than I expected, said former SLU soccer Player Julia Brandenburg. "It seems like there were some girls who played football and it looks like it's going to be really competitive which is what I was hoping."

The team doesn't have a home field yet. Negotiations between the LFL and the St. Charles Family Arena fell apart after the league refused to guarantee dates and money.

The league chairman wouldn't go into specifics but says he's looking at three local locations.
