GILLETTE STADIUM TO HOST 2017 AND 2018 NCAA LACROSSE CHAMPIONSHI

Championships return to home of the New England Patriots and New England Revolution for first time since 2012

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The NCAA, Gillette Stadium and Harvard University today announced the 2017 and 2018 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships will be played at Gillette Stadium, the home of the National Football League’s New England Patriots and Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution. The Division I, II and III Men’s Lacrosse Championships will be played over Memorial Day Weekend, on May 27-29 in 2017 and on May 26-28 in 2018.

“We are honored to have earned the bid to host the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships at Gillette Stadium in 2017 and 2018,” said Robert Kraft, chairman and CEO of The Kraft Group. “We love to celebrate championships at Gillette Stadium and are eager to host the lacrosse national championship games for the fourth and fifth times. I have a son who played lacrosse collegiately and three grandsons who I have enjoyed watching play and can speak to the tremendous growth of the game here in New England. The passion and support by fans of the game were evident when we hosted our first lacrosse championship game and set an attendance record in 2008. We look forward to hosting record-breaking crowds once again in the years ahead.”

The agreement marks the fourth and fifth times the championships will be held at Gillette Stadium, where the event has enjoyed a history of tremendous success. In 2008, Gillette Stadium set attendance records for the Division I final (48,970) and the Division II and III finals (24,317). The championships were also played in Foxborough in 2009 and 2012, attracting fans from 47 states and six international countries to the events.

The New England lacrosse community is comprised of 77 NCAA teams, 34,272 players, 809 high school teams and 86,034 registered US Lacrosse members. New England is home to the largest youth lacrosse organization (Mass Bay Youth Lacrosse League) in the United States and the Eastern Massachusetts Chapter of US Lacrosse is the largest in the country with 43,000 members.

“My family and I are thrilled to bring the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships back to Gillette Stadium,” said Dan Kraft, president international of The Kraft Group and a former lacrosse player at Tufts University. “We look forward to working with the NCAA and all of our partners to create a great experience for the players, fans and lacrosse community.”

“Harvard is thrilled to once again partner with Gillette Stadium to serve as hosts of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships in 2017 and 2018," said Bob Scalise, Harvard’s John D. Nichols ‘53 Family Director of Athletics. “We look forward to working with the NCAA and the lacrosse community to prepare for some exciting weekends of lacrosse at the upcoming NCAA Division I, II and III Championships.”

"We look forward to once again welcoming lacrosse fans from across the U.S. and across the globe to Boston and Foxborough,” said Patrick Moscaritolo, CEO of the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Lacrosse fans will enjoy exploring and discovering our extraordinary cultural attractions and historical sites, in addition to watching great lacrosse at Gillette Stadium."

Ticket, hospitality, reunion opportunities and fan activity information will be announced at a later date.

What is that card I see hanging from the Coaches neck?

What is that card I see hanging from the Coaches neck?


One of the things that sets MBYLL apart from every other league is the high quality of coaching throughout our 120 member programs. Each year we train over 800 coaches in all aspects of the game of lacrosse, and also on the philosophy of the Positive Coaching Alliance. Every coach in our league is required to be certified at least every two years.
For Select games every Head Coach AND every Assistant Coach is required to be certified and display the card visibly around their necks in order to be on the sideline.  For the Classic Sunday games a minimum requirement is that the Head Coach be certified, and it is recommended that all assistant coaches be certified as well.

How can you tell who is certified?
All Coaches should be wearing their certification card visible around their necks. This is another way that we honor the game.

We ask that parents respect the game’s officials

“Referees umpires and officials are human and make mistakes, just like players, coaches and you. No one shouts at you in front of other people when you make a mistake, so please don’t yell at them. We do not have video replay; so, we will go with their calls”.
