In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground, or LPG for short, provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. In fact, someone once called Lacrosse Playground “Instagram before there was Instagram.”
More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world, discuss the latest gear and equipment trends and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
The new Lacrosse Playground breaks through the noise with compelling, long-form stories about the personalities and people behind the sport, connecting the fans to the athletes through a variety of different channels. We hope to continue to be a trusted source for lacrosse and introduce you to those playing the game on a deeper level. There are thousands of stories behind the athletes in lacrosse and LPG is here to tell them.
