50 Hottest Cheerleader Squads of All Sports
Being a cheerleader is tough. Not only do they have to worry about when to flip or how to land correctly so they do not break a leg, but they have to face constant scrutiny and judging from their peers and fans.
I have analyzed these beautiful women from top to bottom, left to right. I have covered the cheerleaders of the NBA, NFL, NHL, NCAA and even the MLB. I have conducted countless hours of research towards this project over the past two years.
This is the list that will combine them all. This is the 50 Hottest Cheerleader Squads of All Sports. There is no more separation between the sports; every team is in. Here we go. Enjoy.
50. The Unknown Hottie
This beauty belongs to the KHL, the Kontinental Hockey League out of Euroasia. It has been around since 2008 and now features 23 teams, mostly from Russia.
So I ask you, who is this? She needs a name and we need to find out who she is, fast. If you know who this is, email me please. She must not go without a name any longer.
49. Denver Nuggets: NBA
There was a time, not too long ago, where we all thought the 2011 NBA season was done. I even went as far as to cancel my hotel room in Orlando for the NBA All-Star Game. I now know I should have waited another week before jumping on that decision.
Anyways, back to the talent at hand, the Denver Nuggets cheerleaders. Yes, they are festive, indeed.
48. Oakland Raiders: NFL
If California was going to have one cheerleading squad not make the list, I thought it was going to be Oakland.
However, after scouring hundreds of photos (sometimes this job requires extensive research involving looking through many photos of hot cheerleaders), I noticed the Oakland Raiderettes have a great group.
Tony La Russa's daughter, Bianca, used to be a member too before a back injury made her retire much too early.
47. North Queensland Cowboys: NRL
In Australia, Rugby is as big a sport as professional football is to the United States. It was the most watched sport in Australia with almost 130 million viewers in 2009, alone.
So, naturally, with as many viewers as the NFL, the women on the sidelines are required to meet specific standards. The women on the North Queensland Cowboys not only meet those standards, they surpass them with ease.
46. Omaha Nighthawks: UFL
The United Football League is terrible. I apologize to anyone who is a fan, player or part of the teams—the league is a joke. The teams are made up of undrafted rookies, cut players and veterans of the NFL just looking for one more shot at glory. But in a league where Dominic Rhodes is the leading rusher, scorer and all-around best player, it just does not make the cut for most of us.
The cheerleaders of the Omaha Nighthawks, however, are a sign of life. They bring their beauty to the sidelines of the UFL and are one of the sexiest cheerleading groups in all of sports because of it.
45. Florida State Seminoles: NCAA
There have always been sexy women in the state of Florida, as you will see throughout the slideshow.
The Florida State cheerleaders have always been mentioned near the top of the list thanks in part to Jenn Sterger and her fan-made Cowgirls.
44. Jacksonville Shark Attack: AFL
The Jacksonville Sharks finished the 2011 Arena Football League season with a 13-4 record, winning the South Division and eventually winning the Arena Bowl as the XXIV champions of the AFL.
Their cheerleaders are just as good as the team itself. The team has better-looking bodies than a muscle magazine. Too bad we have to wait until March before we get to look at them in action again, we want some more now.
43. Denver Broncos: NFL
The Denver Broncos cheerleaders have been sexy since the days of John Elway.
Maybe it is the chaps or maybe it is just the cold weather that brings out the hottest of the hot in Denver but either way, they have more talent than 1992 USA Dream Team.
Wait, I was just handed a note from my friend that says, "Tebow!"
42. Sweethearts for Soldiers
Who are they? What is this?
The Sweethearts for Soldiers is not an escort company for Marines. They are a non-profit charity organization whose main purpose is to entertain the troops overseas with various events, calendars and gift baskets.
How would you feel if you were coming off a mission and back at your base in the desert is a group of half-naked cheerleaders ready to cheer you on?
41. East Carolina: NCAA
There are only a few things better to do in East Carolina than going to the football games, but I just cannot seem to come up with any right now. Call it a brain lapse or call it truth, but in the Greenville, North Carolina, you are either in the stadium or hitting the books.
I would rather hit the stadium with my binoculars to see women like Cassie Adcock, shown here. Her name is purely coincidental.
40. Florida International: NCAA
Does anyone really need to be convinced to move to Miami, Florida? I mean, do I need to draw you a map to show you where all these Florida colleges are located? Most of them are within a stone's throw of Miami.
Florida International, and their super hot twin sisters Michelle and Alexandra, have more than enough talent to compete with the rest of the teams on this list. For one, they have twins, a plus. But they also have several women that, on their own, could make a list of hot cheerleaders.
39. Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks: NRL
Here we go again, some more Australian Rugby cheerleaders for all of us to enjoy. I am glad I came across the NRL, National Rugby League, cheerleading teams. These women are as hot as their accents are sexy.
The Sharks cheerleaders make watching rugby fun again. Not that is was not fun before, but I just do not find it all that interesting anyways.
38. Natal Sharks: South Africa Rugby
Another rugby team, another shark mascot. Aside from these costumes being the sexiest of any cheerleading outfits I have ever seen in my life, these South African beauties are anything but sharks.
Why do so many rugby teams use a shark as a mascot but the NFL has yet to capitalize on this phenomenon?
37. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: NFL
Coming off a loss this weekend, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have now lost five straight games and have dropped to 4-7 on the season, 3.5 games out of first place in the NFC South.
There was much promise with this young team coming into the 2011 season, but bonehead plays and tough defenses have shut them down over the past month and a half. Their last win came against the Saints in October.
Well, at least their cheerleaders are hot.
36. New York Knicks: NBA
Now that the NBA season looks to be a go, we all have begun making our plans for the games we want to attend and I have already bought my tickets for the Knicks game this year. As a New Orleans Hornets fan, I try not to miss the Knicks anytime they come to town.
I will have to wait until April to see them but I am ready. Now, if only they could bring those darn cheerleaders with them. Now that would be awesome.
35. New England Patriots: NFL
If you do not play for a New England team or your name is not Tom Brady, the people of Massachusetts will not be to kind to you. They have their Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins and boy do they love them.
But we are not here to discuss the fans of New England, we are here for the women. The beautiful women that prance around the sidelines during all the Pats home games like these two women.
34. UC Irvine: NCAA
If you live in California then you probably do not realize the caliber of talent that lives there too. The women in California are usually the hottest in the room of any house. There are just so many of them that it is hard to pick which ones are the hottest.
The University of California at Irvine understands what I am talking about. This is just a snippet of what the UC-Irvine Cheerleaders look like. I could not find a better example of what they bring to the table.
33. Philadelphia Eagles: NFL
I would like to introduce to you Jennifer. She is a former Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader and current hottie. She represents a team of beauties that perform in the worse weather conditions of any team in the NFL and they do so with grace and beauty.
The entire team is filled with future models, actresses and celebrities just waiting for their big break. Also, most of them are Desean Jackson fans.
32. Canberra Raiders: NRL
The who and the what? That's right, another NRL team making the list. I cannot emphasize just how loaded the talent is in the NRL. There are many women that, alone, could make the Maxim Hot 100 list each year.
The Raiderettes of the Canberra Raiders, however, are the hottest NRL cheerleaders of them all. All 17 members of the 2011 squad are hotter than the Australian sun they perform under.
31. Toronto Argonauts: CFL
A Canadian Football League sighting!
News Flash: The Toronto Argonauts of the CFL have hot cheerleaders.
It might be deathly cold up there in Canada but when it heats up, the beautiful cheerleaders of the Argonauts take the field in very sexy outfits.
30. Texas: NCAA
Now that the football season is almost over for most of the NCAA, we can prepare for next season and a revamped Big 12 that will say goodbye to Texas A&M and Missouri.
As long as the University of Texas cheerleaders do not leave town, I will manage to survive the transformation. But once those hotties dodge Texas, I am outtie 5000.
29. Georgia Force: AFL
I think I am feeling some G-forces right now after looking at some of the Georgia Forces cheerleaders horsing around.
The Georgia Force, AFL, cheerleaders must be looking for something in the front row. Otherwise, I have no idea what they are doing, but no one is complaining. Just keep looking, ladies.
28. San Francisco 49ers: NFL
The San Francisco 49ers Gold Rush are another cheerleading group from California to make this list. This is not a fluke. These women are hot. They are not just making the list because they hail from Cali; they are actually as hot as they are on television.
The Gold Rush (what a great name for a group of cheerleaders) have 32 members, all of them sexy as the day is long.
27. Los Angeles Clippers: NBA
In Los Angeles, everyone knows about the Lakers and the Laker Girls. But what about the Clippers? They are not across town. They are in the same exact town. They even play in the same arena.
So it should be easy to figure this one out: the Clippers cheerleaders are hot. It is a team of Laker Girl rejects but even the rejected Laker Girls are hotter than other teams entire squads. Let's face it—we are still in LA.
26. San Diego Chargers: NFL
The San Diego Chargers cheerleaders are fully loaded. The women in San Diego are on a whole different level than you are used to. Let me explain.
Back home everyone has women they would classify as a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the hottest. Put those women in San Diego and they become a seven.
The level of talent in San Diego is higher than you can imagine. I have been there and I have seen it. It is real.
25. Chicago Bulls: NBA
In case you missed it, the Chicago Bulls have a cheerleading team known as the Luv-a-Bulls. Not only are they one of the sexiest groups in the NBA, but they have such a cute name it bears repeating, the Luv-a-Bulls.
24. Nashville Predators: NHL
Nashville is the home of country music. It is also the home of the Nashville Predators, NHL team founded in 1998.
They have been a playoff contender for most of the past decade, advancing to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in team history last season. They might not have won anything, but they are one of those teams that will eventually get there. It just takes time.
23. Houston Dynamo: MLS
Is there still a Major League Soccer? Is the MLS still a thing? I was almost certain it was no longer a relevant league until I did my research for this post and I came across the Houston Dynamo cheerleaders.
These women have been considered the Laker Girls of the MLS by Busted Coverage. If you hate soccer or just plain do not like watching it, maybe these women can change your mind. At least give them a chance before you write it off like I did.
22. Baylor: NCAA
Robert Griffin III was hurt in Saturday night's matchup against Texas Tech. He was well on his way to being a Heisman finalist before the injury that could keep him out of next week's game against Texas. Although he is listed as probable, there is still a chance he will not play and that would take him out of the Heisman hunt.
The Baylor Bears have some sexy cheerleaders too. RGIII might be experiencing some issue, but the cheerleaders seem to be just fine.
21. Boston Bruins: NHL
When asked which team won the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup, would you be able to tell me without looking it up?
The Boston Bruins won last season's Stanley Cup and have begun the 2011-2012 season much like the ended last year, on top. They currently lead their division and have won 11 of their last 12 games.
Did you know they had cheerleaders? Did you know those cheerleaders are so sexy, they deserve the honor of being named one of the hottest squads in sports? You should now.
20. Cincinnati Bengals: NFL
In Cincinnati, what else do people do besides watch the Bengals on Sundays? Really? I am not trying to be rude, but can you really name something people enjoy doing in Cincinnati besides football games?
I even went online to find something interesting about Cincinnati and all I could find were the Ben-Gals. Thank goodness those ladies are so beautiful; otherwise, Cincy would be in trouble.
19. Miami Marlins: MLB
Instead of wasting my time cracking jokes about the terrible Miami Marlins uniforms or that they were designed by a blind person, I will spend this time talking about the talented cheerleaders.
The former Florida Marlin Mermaids, one of the few MLB cheerleading teams, have been around since 2004. They might not be the first of their kind but they are easily the best. If MLB could convince all the other teams to field a team of cheerleaders like them, we might not have any problems with attendance.
18. Boston Celtics: NBA
Maybe it is because everyone not from Boston hates the Celtics or maybe it is because they always win but either way, the Boston Celtics play with a chip on their shoulders anywhere they go.
From looking at their cheerleaders over time, I find it hard to imagine anyone having a problem with those lovely ladies.
17. South Florida: NCAA
Thanks to my friends over at Busted Coverage for finding this sexy photo of the University of South Florida cheerleaders having some fun.
If you have not already figured this out by know, the state of Florida is about to be represented on a grand scale. Just keep on reading.
16. Chivas USA: MLS
I have already made it clear that the MLS is legit. It is still up and running and doing quite well. Its cheerleaders, well, they are on a whole different level than the talented players on most teams.
Aside from David Beckham, not too many superstars play in the MLS thanks to Europe hogging all the talent. But for the cheerleaders, teams like Chivas USA based out of LA, they already have the most beautiful women around. So all they need to do is put them in uniform and teach them a dance or two.
15. New Orleans Saints: NFL
The New Orleans Saintsations have the best team website of all the NFL cheerleading teams. Much like their counterpart, the Saints, the Saintsations are one of the NFL's best teams.
14. Texas Tech: NCAA
The Texas Tech Red Raider football team has nothing to celebrate this season. For the first time since 1992, Texas Tech finished the season with a losing record. They are also facing their first season in 11 years that they will not be playing in a bowl game.
This also means that we have to switch our attention over to Texas Tech basketball to watch their cheerleaders in action. As long as we get to see them, I am not caring which sport it's in.
13. University of Southern California: NCAA
Can you imagine yourself being a high school football recruit heading to USC for an official visit? Do you know they use the USC Song Girls to persuade said recruit?
How about a group of USC cheerleaders, in their sexy uniforms, getting soaking wet at a pool party for charity?
It does not matter how they are used, the USC cheerleaders, aka Song Girls, are the hottest cheerleading group of the Pac-12, well, almost the hottest.
12. Los Angeles Kings: NHL
The Los Angeles Kings are a professional hockey team from the NHL. Their cheerleaders, also known as ice girls, are simply models that are waiting for their big break.
So naturally, this would be a successful endeavor. The team is filled with beautiful, young and talented women cheering on their home team, twins and all.
11. Florida Panthers: NHL
Professional hockey in South Florida? Are you serious?
Whenever a hockey team has a cheerleading group that poses in bikinis and on a beach, you know they should not have a hockey team there. The coldest it got in Sunrise, Florida, last year was in the 30s. That might be cold, but it was only for a couple days.
But who am I to complain? I would rather see them in bikinis anyways.
10. Dallas Stars: NHL
The NHL, National Hockey League, is already well respected up North. They love their hockey up there. But what about the South? It is far from an idle place to start a hockey team. The weather in Texas barely gets cold enough to freeze the ice outside, let alone justify having a team there.
However, they do. But how do they get people's attention? By hiring beautiful women of course. And putting them in skintight gear that exposes their midsection for all to enjoy.
9. Washington Redskins: NFL
It is hardly a shock to me but for the rest of you guys, the Washington Redskins cheerleaders being in the top 10 might be a bit of a surprise. These women have been around for quite some time now and have done nothing but get hotter.
Everyone remembers the infamous Redskins cheerleader. Well, she is just the beginning of a long list of hotties in Washington. The Skins keep losing but their women just keep getting hotter.
8. Miami Heat: NBA
As if the city of Miami is not hot enough already, the Miami Heat dancers bring it to a whole new level.
This team has been filled with some of the most insanely beautiful women since the Heat were founded in 1988. The photo I have used to represent the team is only a taste of what they are as a whole.
Can you imagine the madness of showing them all?
7. UCLA: NCAA
"I wish they all could be California Girls." - The Beach Boys
The UCLA cheerleaders are as American as homemade apple pie. They represent the University of California, Los Angeles with their beautiful smiles and ridiculous bodies.
It does not matter which sport they cheer at. They all bring their A+ game. They are one of the only groups where it is difficult to find a weak link.
6. Arizona State: NCAA
The cheerleading program at Arizona State was once cancelled thanks to some very sexy, (for us but not so sexy for the school) and racy photos of the team in lingerie that surfaced on the Internet.
But that was not even the first scandal to hit the Sun Devils squad. A former Sun Devils cheerleader, Courtney Cox, she left the team for porn. There is nothing wrong with that except when she filmed a movie wearing her old ASU cheerleading uniform.
I do not think this team needed to be cancelled. They deserve a medal.
5. Los Angeles Lakers: NBA
There are only a few teams with a higher legendary status than the Los Angeles Laker Girls. They have been shaking their romps on the baselines of the Staples center for many years now.
4. Houston Texans: NFL
I was going to express just how beautiful the team from Houston is but then I remembered they have twins. Twins!
Not just one or two sets of twins, they have three. That's right, folks. The Texans cheerleading squad has three sets of twins. This is unprecedented in ranking hot cheerleaders. Once I found this out, they became a top four team, without a doubt.
3. Oregon: NCAA
I have seen many collegiate cheerleading squads but absolutely none of them can even come close to the University of Oregon's squad. This is a group of the sexiest women on the West Coast wearing the green and gold.
Even the head coach of the team is hotter than most other cheerleaders. And you wondered why they have no trouble recruiting great athletes, look at the talent in O-town.
Where do they find these ladies?
2. Miami Dolphins: NFL
Is there something in the water in Miami?
Now that we have come down to the end of the show, we have already seen several squads from the Miami area, six teams to be exact.
Some states do not even have one squad worthy of the list, but Florida has nine squads. As a state, they would be ranked No. 1.
1. Dallas Cowboys: NFL
The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are to cheerleading what Donald Trump and Bill Gates are to money. They are the elite group that all cheerleaders hope to one day be a part of.
They have been the sexiest cheerleaders since I can remember, and this time will be no different. Until another squad can dethrone them, the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders will own this top spot.
