Get Your Game Face on for the Ladies of VH1's 'Football Wives'

New Series Premieres Sunday, October 24 at 10:30 PM ET/PT

Catch Sneak Peeks and Exclusive Clips on VH1.com

NEW YORK, Sept. 23 -- Tighten your helmets and put on those extra pads because football season is about to get intense as the wives and girlfriends behind some of the sport's most elite players take the field on VH1 Sunday, October 24 at 10:30 PM ET/PT.

A flashy team of Football Wives will give viewers a never-before-seen look into the glamorous, and dramatic, life of a professional football player's spouse in VH1's original series. VH1's "Football Wives" include:

Pilar Sanders, married to Deion Sanders, all-pro cornerback, retired

Amanda Davis married to Leonard Davis, guard, Dallas

Chanita Foster, married to George Foster, tackle, UFL

Brittany Pigrenet, girlfriend of David Buehler, kicker, Dallas

Dawn Neufeld, married to Ryan Neufeld, tight end, UFL

Melani Ismail, married to Rocket Ismail, receiver, retired

Erin McBriar, married to Mat McBriar, punter, Dallas

Mercedes Nelson ex-girlfriend of a star player, Dallas

Set in the cradle of American football, Dallas, this series goes inside the real-life locker room of the spouses of some of the biggest footballers in the game. Many of these ladies live the life. They drive the best cars, live in the biggest mansions, wear designer clothes and jewelry, and travel first class. But living the high life is not all glamour and is frequently fleeting. Football players are often injured so their partners are forced to not only play wife, but also be a mother or nurse to their man. The careers of these modern-day gladiators span only a few years on average and their life-expectancy is alarmingly low. There is often a fine line between the stars who collect big contracts and the journeymen who fight to stay in the league, sometimes struggling to pay their bills. And unlike basketball players, football stars travel less for games and are more often home with their families. What price will they pay for enduring the equivalent of multiple head-on collisions on any given Sunday?

Full episodes and extra scenes from "Football Wives" will be available on VH1.com and through VH1 Mobile each week following the show's on-air premiere.
