SPARKS, Md. — US Lacrosse is pleased to announce that Warrior Lacrosse has signed a four-year agreement to be an official equipment supplier for the U.S. men’s national teams. Warrior has been a past partner of the U.S. national teams program, most recently with the 2010 U.S. men’s senior team and the 2012 U.S. men’s U19 team.

“We’re excited to have Warrior back as a partner with our national teams,” said Brett Hurwitz, managing director, strategic partnerships for US Lacrosse. “We want to provide our world-class athletes the ability to use the best equipment available to perform at peak levels, which makes Warrior a natural fit in our pool of equipment partners. We look forward to activating this partnership to help both of our organizations advance the sport.”

“The U.S. men’s national teams are made up of the most elite players in the world”, said John Gregory, Director of Marketing of Warrior Sports. “As an industry leader in lacrosse, we look forward to partnering with US Lacrosse and providing their men’s national teams with the most innovative and best-in-class product available on the market.”

U.S. team players will have the option to use Warrior sticks, both heads and handles, along with body and arm protection and gloves. During the year, the Warrior brand will also be integrated into various marketing and advertising assets, including official US Lacrosse print, website, and social media properties, as well as on-site at U.S. men’s national team competitions run by US Lacrosse.

The U.S. men’s national team has won nine of the 12 Federation of International Lacrosse men’s world championships conducted since 1967, and all eight men’s U19 world championships held since 1988. The next FIL men’s competition will be the 2018 world championship in Manchester, England.
