The great fans of the National Lacrosse League will once again come together this summer to play the game they love, while raising money for charity. The 2012 Fann Cup, a lacrosse tournament of teams comprised of fans of the NLL, will be played on Saturday, July 28th in Minneapolis/St. Paul suburb of Blaine, Minnesota. The host team this year is the Minnesota Stingers, a team comprised of fans of the Minnesota Swarm.
Fans from across North America gather every summer to get their taste of the NLL in the off-season, playing against fans of their rival teams while raising money for charity. The Fann Cup has raised more than $50,000 for various charities in the first ten year’s of the tournaments existence. This years charities include PawPADS, a service that trains dogs for the disabled, and Lax-4-Life. Lax-4-Life is an annual summer camp for Native American youth that teaches lacrosse as part of a healthy lifestyle and a way to connect with cultural heritage.
