Ireland are poised to adopt the Legends' 'Lingerie' Football League, which consists of American football played by women in their underwear.
The seven-a-side sport, which was created in 2003, already has franchises in the United States, Canada and Australia.
"This is certainly an exciting time to be part of the LFL and a fan as the sport continues its unprecedented growth globally," the Irish Sun quotes LFL's Mitchell Mortaza as saying.
"It's amazing to think that women from places like Germany, Italy, Russia are aware of our sport and aspire to play on the now global stage of LFL Football."
Fans in Ireland will also be allowed to vote for the name of their national team.
