MLL Returns to Atlanta for 2014 Championship

Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field and PPL Park will host the Men’s and Women’s (excluding DII) NCAA Lacrosse Championships. Last year, the Men’s championships in Philly marked the sixth consecutive year of attendance decline.

Chicago’s Soldier Field is still a possibility for hosting a championship in 2017-2018. NCAA needs to make that happen or else risk revisiting Boston and continuing a downward spiral in terms of stagnate attendance and growth.
