The UAlbany press release has all the details:
The Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) announced today that the league will return to the University at Albany for its upcoming 2020 season. The PLL is scheduled to host an evening match-up on Friday, August 14 and a doubleheader on Saturday, August 15.
Games will take place for the second consecutive year at Bob Ford Field at Tom & Mary Casey Stadium. PLL is scheduled to come back to the University at Albany following the league’s second-ever sellout during its three-game weekend in 2019. Albany becomes another location announced for the upcoming season after Boston, Atlanta, New York, Baltimore, Dallas, Minnesota, Los Angeles, Portland and Raleigh. The weekend in Albany will see another triumphant return for former University at Albany stars and members of the school’s Men’s Lacrosse team including Connor Fields, Miles Thompson, Blaze Riorden, Troy Reh, and Kyle McClancy, amongst several others.
“After the resounding success of our 2019 weekend in Albany, we began to almost plan out the 2020 schedule around our return to the city,” says PLL Co-Founder and CEO Mike Rabil. “We will look to scale this tentpole weekend to an even larger scale for the upcoming season. Lacrosse is endemic to the people of Albany and we saw this firsthand as they packed the stands last summer. This weekend means an incredible amount to our players, staff, and fans and we will put on another memorable experience for everyone.”
