Minneapolis, MN, June 23, 2014 — Season four of the Continental Indoor Lacrosse League (CILL) is set to begin play this summer. The United States-based Senior box lacrosse organization will see nine teams in competition for 2014.

The “original four” clubs, which include Chicago Outlaws, Columbus Brew, Grand Rapids Dragonfish and Milwaukee Marauders, all return for another campaign. They are joined by the two-time defending CILL Cup champion Colorado Sabertooths, Detroit Coney Dogs and Pittsburgh Octane. 2014 will also mark the return of the Cleveland Demons franchise, a team that first competed in the 2012 season only to go on hiatus last year.

CILL will also welcome a newcomer into the fold. The Lansing Hot Rods will be an official full-time league member in 2014. Lansing played a limited exhibition schedule against CILL teams in 2013, but will make the leap to full league membership this season.

CILL Commissioner Russ King commented on the state of the league, saying “we are excited for the fourth CILL season and the additions in Cleveland and Lansing. We hope these markets will help continue our goal of growing the sport of box lacrosse in the United States. ”

The 2014 CILL schedule gets underway on August 2 when Grand Rapids travel to Chicago to face the Outlaws. A seven-week regular season schedule will conclude on September 14. The CILL Cup playoffs will be contested on the weekend of September 28-29.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground 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. 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 and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
