Premier Lacrosse League Opening Weekend at Gillette Stadium

June 1 & 2, 2019

Gillette Stadium will host the Premier Lacrosse League opening weekend on June 1 and 2, 2019. PLL CSO and Co-Founder Paul Rabil made the announcement at Gillette Stadium on Friday, February 15.

 

Rabil, a lacrosse superstar, 2x Gold Medalist with Team USA and veteran of 10 seasons in professional lacrosse, launched the Premier Lacrosse League in October alongside his brother Mike Rabil. The PLL is a tour-based model featuring six teams and the 160 best players in the world. In addition to being full-time employees and receiving health benefits, players will get equity stakes in the league – a first in professional sports. Rabil, a John Hopkins men’s lacrosse alumnus, played in Gillette Stadium’s first NCAA Lacrosse Championship weekend in May 2008.

 

Gillette Stadium has hosted five NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships since 2008 and holds the NCAA Men’s Division I Championship attendance record (2008: 48,970), the top three attendance records for Division I National Championship Games since 2012 (2012: 30,816, 2018: 29,455 and 2017: 28,971) and the top three Division II and Division III National Championship attendance records (2017: 31,560, 2008: 24,317 and 2009: 24,072). The venue also hosted professional lacrosse games in 2015.
