Chicago Bliss is one of two teams that were introduced to the Legends Football League in 2004 (the other being Dallas Desire).

Being defeated by New York Euphoria in the Eastern Final (one of the Semi-Finals which included a Skill Test, a 3-on-2 match and a dance competition) at Lingerie Bowl II in 2005 and again at Lingerie Bowl III in 2006, the team never reached the Final.
