LOS ANGELES, CA. (FEBRUARY 13, 2020) - The Premier Lacrosse League has announced a partnership with FLG Lacrosse to support the league’s 2020 PLL Weekend in New York on June 12th and 13th at Stony Brook University. During this time, FLG hosts the ‘Spring Shootout,’ a popular youth lacrosse tournament which attracts teams from the greater Tri-State area. The partnership between PLL and FLG will be unique as all tournament participants will receive tickets to the PLL Weekend as part of their tournament registration. The partnership will provide a meaningful boost to experience and attendance for the PLL’s highly-anticipated Long Island debut.
“The tournament will provide an amazing backdrop of youth competition to a weekend that has already generated a ton of excitement. We’re particularly excited about the fact that tournament competition will be taking place at Stony Brook University, which creates a seamless integration between our events” says Mick Davis, Head of Ticketing for the PLL. “FLG and the Winkoffs have been tremendous stewards of the game on Long Island, and we believe their support and tournament integration will take a tentpole-style event in Long Island and make it absolutely electric”.
Corey Winkoff, the program leader of FLG Lacrosse says: "FLG is thrilled to operate the Spring Shootout in Partnership with the PLL this June of 2020. We are transforming one of our existing events, to give both youth boys, and now girls too, an opportunity to play the game they love while engaging with some of the best lacrosse players in the world. Working with the Premier Lacrosse League to bring the first ever PLL weekend to Long Island is an opportunity of a lifetime. What the Premier Lacrosse League is doing for our sport is unprecedented. We are so excited to work alongside the league, the players, and the coaches to present a historic weekend of lacrosse right here on Long Island.”
