NCAA Lacrosse: Northwestern Women’s Lacrosse Announces 2014 Season Game With USC At Wrigley Field On April 26; Marketing Partnership Event With Chicago Cubs Will Be Televised By Big Ten Network

Northwestern Women's Lacrosse hosts USC at Wrigley Field

Northwestern Athletics and the Chicago Cubs announced today (Nov. 4) that the Wildcats’ seven-time NCAA champion women’s lacrosse program will face Southern California at iconic Wrigley Field on Saturday, April 26, 2014. The game — part of the event and reciprocal marketing partnership announced by Northwestern and the Chicago Cubs earlier this year — will be played in primetime at 7 p.m. CT and be televised by the Big Ten Network.

The matchup pits ultra-successful Northwestern head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller against one of her most successful former players and assistant coaches, 2006 Northwestern alum, USC head coach and current captain of the U.S. Senior National Team Lindsey Munday. Last spring, Northwestern and USC met in the first-ever lacrosse game at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and in 2014 will share the honor of introducing America’s fastest growing sport to Wrigley Field.

“Our program could not be more excited for the opportunity to bring women’s lacrosse to Wrigley Field, one of the most iconic sports venues in the world,” Amonte Hiller said. “We’ve been fortunate to play in some neat settings in recent seasons, including the Coliseum last year, but to take the field in our hometown and with the unique gameday atmosphere that Wrigleyville provides will be an unforgettable experience. The fact that we’re able to welcome Lindsey and her up-and-coming program into the fold only makes it that much more special.”

Northwestern, which last season finished 19-3 and appeared in the NCAA semifinals for a ninth consecutive season, also has participated in the debut of women’s lacrosse at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas (2011) and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. (2012).

Northwestern baseball kicked off the Wildcats’ innovative event partnership with the Cubs on April 20, 2013, when it blanked Michigan, 6-0, at the Friendly Confines. In 2010, Northwestern staged the first college football game at Clark and Addison since 1938 when it hosted the Allstate Wrigleyville Classic.

Chicagoland lacrosse fans have plenty to look forward to in 2014. Less than a week after Northwestern and USC do battle at Wrigley Field, the Wildcats will host the American Lacrosse Conference Tournament in Evanston (May 1-4), the final ALC Tournament before the formation of a Big Ten women’s lacrosse conference in 2015. The complete 2014 Northwestern women’s lacrosse schedule and information related to season ticket packages will be released in the coming weeks.

ESPNU aired the gold medal game between the United States and Canada, with the U.S. prevailing 12-10 to win the world championship. The 2014 event marks the first time since 1998 that the U.S. will host the FIL men’s world championship.
