“We’re excited to see the Twin Cities area get the opportunity to host a regional qualifying event for the inaugural IMG Indoor Nationals,” Swarm Co-Owner and President Andy Arlotta said. “This tournament will be a great opportunity to showcase Minnesota’s indoor lacrosse talent as well as help raise awareness for the benefits of playing indoor lacrosse.”

The top teams in each of the regional qualifying events will meet in Philadelphia, PA, on Jan. 10 — 12 at the Wells Fargo Center to vie for the championship.

“We are excited to give players the opportunity and the platform to develop and showcase their indoor lacrosse talent,” said Johnny Mouradian, General Manager of the Philadelphia Wings and the founder of the American Indoor Lacrosse Association. “Competition definitely breeds success. Our long-term goal is to generate a greater level of youth involvement playing indoor lacrosse providing field lacrosse players the opportunity to compete and develop a special skill set that will enhance their field game and lacrosse IQ.”
