Who said football was just for guys?

With football season in full effect, fans are immersed in tailgates, tackles and touchdowns. And while male fans everywhere cleaned out the man cave and created their teams for fantasy football, plenty of female football fanatics were doing the same — if not more.

Females have flipped the switch on football, with an estimated 45 percent of the NFL’s fans being women. This once male-dominated sport has attracted the likes of ladies everywhere.

So much so, that just this year, Google announced that its top five most searched jerseys on the Internet were for women. Add to that the fact that both NFL and college football ditched their “pink it and shrink it” female attire strategy and designed a full line of women’s apparel that includes football gear in every shape, size and color imaginable and it’s easy to see that women are quickly becoming a force for the gridiron.
