The English Lacrosse Association (ELA) and Major League Lacrosse (MLL) are proud to announce a partnership agreement for the MLL to feature daily highlights of the 2010 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) Men’s World Championships on the MLL website.
The MLL is the premier professional lacrosse league in the world and they will embed daily highlights of the World Championships on the MLL website. The top players in the MLL will be in Manchester representing their respective nations, US, Canada, Australia, Iroquois, England, Japan and more.
The 2010 FIL Men’s World Lacrosse Championships take place between the 15th and 24th of July in Manchester, England and promises to be the biggest Championships in Lacrosse history.
Whilst the best way to enjoy the Championships will be to soak up the atmosphere in the Stadium; the world wide demand for tickets means that not everyone will get to experience the event in person, so the agreement with MLL will benefit those fans unable to travel to Manchester.
The latest action from the Championship’s main stadium matches will also be streamed live on the internet. Season passes for internet streaming, which include all games played in the Stadium, can be purchased for just £11.50 at http://247.tv/lacrosse/fil-world-lacrosse-championships-2010/.
Purchasing one of these Season Passes will allow fans to watch any Match from the Stadium pitch, which includes all Blue division and Final Games, on stream and on demand up to and including August 10th 2010. The remaining 24 participating nations will also be available online to view within 24-hours from the last whistle.
Only 2,500 seats now remain available to the public for the World Lacrosse Championships. Season Passes and a Final Four Day Ticket Package are on sale and will secure your seat at the Final Match in addition to over 100 more World Class lacrosse matches. Day tickets are also available and are on sale at http://www.2010worldlacrosse.com/tickets
