The National Lacrosse League (“NLL”) is the largest and most attended men’s professional box lacrosse league in the world. The NLL 2018-2019 league season will mark its 33rd year in existence. With the latest announcement of our New York Franchise, there are 13 teams scheduled to play in the 2019-2020 league season. These teams include the Buffalo Bandits, Colorado Mammoth, Calgary Roughnecks, Georgia Swarm, New England Black Wolves, Philadelphia Wings, Rochester Knighthawks, San Diego Seals, Saskatchewan Rush, Toronto Rock, Vancouver Warriors, and the Halifax Thunderbirds.
Games are most frequently on Friday nights, Saturday nights, or Sunday afternoons. The regular season is 18 games long (9 home, 9 away) and runs from December through April. Eight teams make the playoffs with teams advancing through single elimination games until two reach the NLL Finals in June, which is a best-of-three series finale to determine the winner of the NLL Cup.
