“There’s not a venue as closely connected to lacrosse, with world-class facilities and amenities like Gillette Stadium and One Patriot Place,” says co-founder and CEO, Mike Rabil. “With our opening weekend of games slated for June 4th, our athletes will receive the best care while preparing for the start of the season on location.”
During this time, PLL players will take part in official team practices, scrimmages, preseason workouts, film sessions, and educational workshops with their coaches ahead of their regular season debuts. Training Camp will be closed to the public, but tickets are still available for Opening Weekend at Ticketmaster.com.
“We look forward to hosting the PLL’s Training Camp at Gillette Stadium for the first time this spring, in addition to hosting the league’s Opening Weekend,” said Kraft Group President-International Dan Kraft, who was a collegiate lacrosse goalie for Tufts University in the 1980s and served on the executive Board of the 2018 Federation of International Lacrosse’s World Championships Host Committee. “Hosting training camp is another important step in our strong relationship with the PLL and we cannot wait to welcome the nation’s best lacrosse players, including former Patriot Chris Hogan, back to Gillette Stadium. While training camp will be closed to the public, we are excited to welcome fans to Gillette Stadium June 4 through June 6 to enjoy five riveting PLL matchups all weekend long.”
As part of PLL’s Training Camp, pre-season exhibition games will be hosted at Veterans Memorial Stadium on June 1. More information on schedule and tickets for pre-season exhibition games forthcoming.
