MLL announces 2020 regular season schedule for twentieth anniversary season

Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced today the 2020 regular season schedule. This season each team will have five home games and five away games, facing each of their opponents twice. The season is twelve weeks long, affording each team two bye weeks.

“We have been working extremely hard this offseason and we are thrilled to present the 2020 schedule,” said MLL Commissioner, Alexander Brown. “In each market fans will have the opportunity to watch their team compete against each team in the league. This schedule offers the perfect balance for fans to enjoy the best lacrosse has to offer and for our players to compete at the highest level.”

In the first week of the season, the Chesapeake Bayhawks will host the Denver Outlaws. This will be a rematch of the 2019 MLL Championship. The Outlaws fell to the Bayhawks in Denver in the Championship game last season (10-9).

The first week of the season will also see the two most recently announced teams face one-another. February 11, Major League Lacrosse announced the inception of the Connecticut Hammerheads, being led by Head Coach, Bill Warder. Earlier this week Major League Lacrosse announced that the Philadelphia Barrage are Back and will be led by Spencer Ford. We expect to see quite the battle when the Hammerheads and Barrage face off in their first game of the 2020 season.

On July, Fourth Major League Lacrosse will present two games. Fans in Annapolis can enjoy a Fourth of July celebration cheering on the Bayhawks as they host the New York Lizards. Out in Denver, fans from across the state of Colorado will venture to Empower Field at Mile High for the fifteenth year of the Mile High Fourth of July. The Outlaws will matchup against the Philadelphia Barrage for what has become the number one destination in Colorado for Fourth of July celebrations. 30,000 fans will enjoy an unbelievable night of lacrosse and fireworks.

The last week of the regular season will take place August 15, with all six teams competing. Two teams that have been a part of the league since its inception will face off when the Lizards host the Chesapeake Bayhawks. Also that weekend, the Boston Cannons host the Philadelphia Barrage and the Denver Outlaws host the Connecticut Hammerheads.
