Major League Lacrosse, the premier outdoor lacrosse league, announced that the Florida Launch will call FAU Stadium its home for the 2014 season. The MLL’s newest team will play all of its seven home games at the venue, bringing professional lacrosse back to FAU after two successful events in 2012 and 2013.
“We are pleased to have the Launch play at FAU Stadium,” said MLL Commissioner David Gross. “MLL has hosted some successful events there and the facility is a perfect fit for the team’s inaugural season.”
“Lacrosse is growing like wildfire here in the state of Florida,” said Launch Head Coach Stan Ross. “And with growth like that, FAU is a perfect location for our team to play where fans from all over central and south Florida can reach us easily. We are excited to start playing the top level of lacrosse in the country at FAU in only a few short months.”
The Palm Beach County Sports Commission has been instrumental in bringing the team to FAU having supported the previous MLL events in the area.
