The Premier Lacrosse League and US Lacrosse will form a partnership through the PLL Championship Series, set to take place from July 25 through Aug. 9. The partnership will focus on supporting US Lacrosse as an organization, and its mission to provide leadership, growth, and programs that fuel the sport and enrich the experience in lacrosse for all participants.

The announcement comes as an extension of a standing partnership — with initiatives across youth lacrosse, diversity and inclusion, U.S. Men’s National Teams, and general alignment on leadership to help drive the sport forward.

Core to the partnership will be fundraising support for the sport’s National Governing Body. This will include linear broadcast “text-to-donate” integrations on NBCSN as well as promotion of a general giving page to support the non-profit.

“Like many families, companies, and organizations, US Lacrosse has not been immune to the impacts of COVID-19. We are grateful for the continued financial support of members and donors across our community. Our partnership with the PLL will provide meaningful amplification of our nonprofit’s mission and signal alignment at the highest level of the sport,” said US Lacrosse CEO, Steve Stenersen.

“We’re proud of our partnership with US Lacrosse and believe that supporting the health of their organization is important for continued growth at all levels of the sport. The PLL Championship Series will provide unprecedented access to lacrosse with 14 of 20 games appearing on linear television - and the opportunity to drive awareness to US Lacrosse’s initiatives will be invaluable.” said PLL Co-Founder, Paul Rabil.

The PLL Championship Series will be played in Utah under a quarantine format to optimize player safety. The event comes after a mid-season cancellation of collegiate lacrosse and youth programs around the country.

“We hope that the Championship Series will provide a bright spot in a difficult year for lacrosse," Rabil said. "Our partnership with US Lacrosse is symbolic of wider support and alignment in a difficult time for many lacrosse players and families. We feel fortunate for the opportunity to bring the best players in the world to life through this event - and to do it in lockstep with partners like US Lacrosse”.
