When I received this information today, our friend Jamie Flynt stated, ” Should be one for the records with former Nashville Dream and former Renegade players on each side of the ball…”
She was referring to the very two teams that were the start of the NWFA.
The Renegades were one of the founding teams of the National Women’s Football Association (NWFA) back in the fall of 2000.
The Renegades and the Nashville Dream played a six game exhibition season to determine the viability of a women’s full -contact football league.
The exhibition games were a huge success and the league expanded to 12 teams in its first full season of play in the spring of 2001.
(Note: The NWFA dissolved after the 2008 Season)
