Restore the Iroquois Nationals' Standing in International Competition

The Iroquois Nationals, a league of sovereign nations recognized by the UN, were denied entry to England using their own passports. The Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) says they can not be permitted in the top bracket for 2014 due to their non-participation in the prior event. The Iroquois have shared their game with the world AND are widely recognized as one of the top three teams in the world. Help push the FIL leaders to do the right thing by seeding the Iroquois Nationals in the rightful position for this competition.

The FIL will determine if the team can play in the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships on June 9.

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.
