MLL Championship Returns to Fifth Third Bank Stadium at KSU Saturday, August 8...
Major League Lacrosse, the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, announced today that the MLL season will culminate once again in Georgia on Saturday, August 8 with the 2015 Championship Game hosted at Fifth Third Bank Stadium on the campus of Kennesaw State University. The event closed out the 2014 season with rave reviews and support from the surrounding community, making it an easy choice to repeat as host. The game will be nationally televised live on CBS Sports Network.
Once again the League’s top two teams at the end of the regular season will host the semi-finals in their home markets on Saturday August 1, and the winners of those games will vie for the title the following week in Georgia.
"Coming off the success we experienced last summer, we’re thrilled to be bringing the MLL Championship Game back to Georgia. Everyone in the league was blown away by the local support that we received and how enthusiastic the fans were for the professional game. We’re excited to continue to build the event and the MLL brand in the southeast. We’ve been fortunate to work with great people at Fifth Third Bank Stadium, the Atlanta Sports Council, the Cobb County Alliance and LB3 Lacrosse," said MLL Commissioner David Gross.
"Major League Lacrosse is a perfect fit for our venue, the enthusiastic fans are close to the fast action on the field and the sponsors work with us and the League to create a festive atmosphere throughout the whole day," said Fifth Third Bank Stadium’s General Manger, Marty Elliott.
“Lacrosse participation is rapidly growing in metro Atlanta and we want more people in our community to be exposed to the sport because once you see it, you will love it. We’re confident that the unified effort between the Atlanta Sports Council, Cobb Sports Alliance, Kennesaw State University and Major League Lacrosse will ensure that the 2015 MLL Championship game is a huge success. We’re excited to have it back,” said Dan Corso, Executive Director for the Atlanta Sports Council.
Tickets for the 2015 MLL Championship Game will go on sale to the public Monday, February 2.
