BOSTON (January 23, 2015)- Major League Lacrosse, the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, announced today that the 2015 All-Star Game will be hosted at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston Texas on Saturday, June 13. This will be the first ever MLL event held in the city of Houston. The game will be nationally televised live on CBS Sports Network.
"We’re excited to bring the MLL All-Star Game to Houston. We’ve been watching the growth of the sport in Texas and want to give the great fans in the region a taste of the MLL. Working together with Savoy Sports Advisors, the Harris County - Houston Sports Authority and the Houston Chapter of US Lacrosse, we’re sure we can make this a memorable event," said MLL Commissioner David Gross.
For the city of Houston and its surrounding communities, hosting the MLL All-Star Game is yet another testament to the growth of lacrosse in emerging markets across the United States. Houston youth lacrosse has seen tremendous growth in participation at the recreational, club and select level in recent years. Many programs have seen participation rates increase by 30% year over year. The greater Houston area boasts more than 30 independent youth clubs, each with girls and boys programs ranging from youth through high school. Recent success in Houston lacrosse has increased recognition by nationally recognized programs and organizations, which has increased recruiting activity and success on a national level for the area.
MLL will work with a strong local partnership group in Houston, led by Savoy Sports Advisors, the Harris County - Houston Sports Authority and the Houston Chapter of US Lacrosse.
Savoy Sports Advisors and local operating partners, Timon Lorenzo and Brendan Logue stated, "We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with Major League Lacrosse to showcase the world’s greatest players in Houston. The All-Star Weekend will be a great start in building on the success of the MLL and the growth of local youth programs in one of the most dynamic sports markets in the country."
"As lacrosse enthusiasts, we're extremely excited that the MLL will be bringing this marquee event to Houston for the first time," said US Lacrosse Houston Chapter Board member Mark Golenzer. "There's great passion for the game of lacrosse throughout the Greater Houston area, and the Houston Chapter looks forward to working with the MLL to help promote this game to the lacrosse community."
