The Lingerie Bowl has been cancelled for a third year in a row. 

According to the St. Petersburg Times, there were conflicts between the organizers of Lingerie Bowl and the hosting Caliente nudist resort over a "clothing mandate" that bowl organizers say was agreed upon, the Lingerie Football League is throwing in the towel.

A league spokesman said holding and broadcasting the game in the nude or around nude people was not what the players or league had in mind.

"The league will not place our fans, players, staff nor partners in a less-than-comfortable environment that would ultimately jeopardize the mainstream perception and reputation of the brand that so many have worked diligently over these past five years to build," the league's Stephon McMillen said.

Angye Fox, a spokeswoman for Caliente Resorts, issued this statement: "Caliente is a luxury clothing-optional resort. We ran into conflicts with the Lingerie Football League wanting more areas of our resort restricted to clothing required than we could accommodate."

The cancellation follows weeks of speculation that the Lingerie Bowl might not go off as planned. 

The last time the Lingerie Bowl was played occurred three years ago when the event was sponsored by a major online gambling outfit,  The Bodog Group.   Former Bodog General Manager, Clayton Ayre, reportedly had a falling out with the Lingerie Bowl organizers following a one season sponsorship deal.
