NLL Expands Regular Season To 18 Games In 2014

The National Lacrosse League has announced that as part of a comprehensive strategic plan, the league’s Board of Governors have voted to increase the length of the regular season from 16 to 18 games for the 2014 NLL season.  The comprehensive strategic plan includes findings from a recent survey conducted of NLL fans throughout North America.  Among the survey’s findings was a desire by the fans for additional regular season games.   

“By expanding the season to 18 games, the Board of Governors and the league have taken action to meet the demands of our fans”, said NLL Commissioner George Daniel. “We look forward to providing more of the games that our fans love to watch while creating more opportunities for new fans to come and enjoy the NLL experience and the world’s greatest lacrosse players”. 

The league’s current 16-game regular season schedule format has been in place since the 2002 season.  The 2014 regular season schedule is due to be released in September.

“Fans want more games,” said Rock Owner and President and Jamie Dawick.  “I’m in favour of expanding the schedule.  I’m not sure that’s where I ultimately want it to end.  It’s a start and it guarantees nine regular season home games.”

The NLL always takes care of their fans. A lot of leagues talk about how they care about fans but it's just hollow comments. The NLL is sincere. Great job increasing season to 18 games.
