Major League Lacrosse: “2014 MLL All-Star Game” To Host Team USA Men’s Lacrosse Team In Tune-Up For “2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championships”


2014 MLL All-Star Game Team USA

Major League Lacrosse, the premier outdoor lacrosse League, announced today that it will hold the 2014 All-Star Game at Harvard Stadium in Boston on Thursday, June 26. This marks the fifth time the All-Star Game is held in Boston and fourth at Harvard Stadium.
Next year, the MLL All Stars will host US Lacrosse and Team USA as they prepare for the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championships, hosted by US Lacrosse in Denver, Colo., starting July 10.
“We are delighted to host Team USA for the 2014 MLL All-Star Game,” said MLL Commissioner David Gross. “The last two times we used this format we had some amazing games featuring some of the top players in the World.”
US Lacrosse recently announced the 52-man training roster that will be trimmed down to the 23 players participating in the World Championships. Of the 52 athletes, 50 are MLL players including the 2010 All-Star Game MVP Brendan Mundorf, three time World Championship participant Matt Striebel and 2013 MLL Rookie of the Year Rob Pannell. With the talent pool available, the 2014 All-Star Game will truly be the battle of the best lacrosse players in the world today.
“It’s the last thing we’re going to do before the World Championships, so we are really looking forward to playing the best players in the MLL,” said Team USA Head Coach Richie Meade. “The All-Star Game is going to be a very exciting event, and will really help us prepare for Denver.”
This is the third time the All-Star Game serves as a tune up match for Team USA. In 2006, the MLL All-Stars dropped an 18-10 decision to Team USA at Nickerson Field in Boston, while in the last World Championship cycle, in 2010, Team USA edged the All-Stars 13-12 at Harvard Stadium.
Harvard Stadium is the centerpiece of Harvard’s athletic facilities and has stood as a Boston landmark for more than a century. The stadium was constructed in 1903 and hosted its first game on November 14 of that year. It was the world’s first massive reinforced concrete structure and the first major permanent arena for American college athletics. With a seating capacity of 30,898, Harvard Stadium is praised for its outstanding sightlines. The Stadium was upgraded in 2006 when a Field Turf playing surface and permanent lighting were added.

Team USA Lacrosse: Denver Men’s Lacrosse Alums Eric Law (’13) And Dillon Roy (’10) Named To 52-Man “2014 U.S. Men’s National Team” Roster


Denver Men's Lacrosse Alums Named To Team USA Lacrosse Roster

Former University of Denver men’s lacrosse stand-outs Eric Law and Dillon Roy were among 52 players named to the United States Men’s National Team training roster that was unveiled this week. The announcement came following a three-day tryout that saw 94 of America’s premier professional and collegiate players in Baltimore.
“We are very proud of both Eric and Dillon for making the 52-man US Men’s Lacrosse Roster,” said DU men’s lacrosse head coach Bill Tierney. “Just being one of 94 invitees to the World Team Try-Out is an honor for these two amazing young men. To make it to the final round, which determines who will represent the United States in the 2014 World Games, here in Denver, is a proud moment for Eric, Dillon and all of us at the University of Denver. These two former Pioneers have led our team to many victories over the last four years and are of a special breed of people both on and off the field. They will continue to represent us and their families as the process of selecting the final team moves on throughout the year.”
These players will train with Team USA at a series of fall and winter events, culminating with Champion Challenge, a US Lacrosse event, where players will vie for 23 spots on the final world championships roster. The annual event will once again be hosted Jan. 24-26 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
The reigning world champion U.S. Men’s National Team will compete for a record 10th world title at the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Championships, hosted by US Lacrosse on July 10-19, 2014, in Denver, Colo.
