TOWSON, Md. – The Towson University men’s lacrosse team will host Japan’s Keio University for a friendly international game on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at Johnny Unitas® Stadium, head coach Shawn Nadelen announced today.

“Towson Lacrosse is very excited to host Keio University,” said Nadelen. “It is the premier lacrosse-playing school in Japan. Keio is very passionate for the sport of lacrosse, and it is displayed in how they perform on the field. We are honored to have Keio at Towson, and our players will share in a great experience playing against the Japanese players. We look forward to having a competitive game. ”

Keio University is visiting Towson as part of a larger trip abroad to gain playing experience and participate in cultural exchange. The team has a long history of visiting the U.S. for friendly games and of hosting U.S. teams in Japan. Keio University students were instrumental in founding and promoting lacrosse in Japan.

The Keio University lacrosse players have experienced some success on the international level, playing for the bronze medal at the 2010 Federation of International Lacrosse Championship in Manchester, England.

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.
