San Diego Rebellion joins groundbreaking new league

SAN DIEGO – Calif. The San Diego Rebellion announced their intention to sign with the newly formed Women’s National Football Conference (WNFC) on August 31, 2018.

Launched on August 27th the WNFC was founded by women’s football pioneer Odessa Jenkins. She is joined at the executive level by a team of former female NFL coaches and proven business, marketing, and sales professionals.

With this move the San Diego Rebellion becomes one of the WNFC’s inaugural teams. The WNFC raises the standard for football and business operations in the world of women’s football, closely aligning to the Rebellion’s founding beliefs.

“For far too long the sport of women’s football has focused more on letting everyone play rather than building high caliber teams that can produce a consistent, quality product. The WNFC’s focus on quality over quantity promises to raise the level of women’s football and will shift the conversation to the professional level.” ~Knengi Martin, co-owner

“Women’s football has always operated on the pay to play model. The WNFC has brought together successful business and football minds to produce an opportunity to shift this model. Focusing on corporate sponsorships, league branding, and a plan to help all teams grow to their full potential is what appealed to the Rebellion.” ~Katie Ott, co-owner
