The Premier Lacrosse League is a professional field lacrosse league based out of the USA.  The league was founder by professional field lacrosse player Paul Rabil and his brother Mike.  The annoucement was first made in September 2018 and the news took over the lacrosse world. A player who played in the only professional field lacrosse league (MLL) left and started his own league.  Power move to say the least.  The field lacrosse community became quickly divided over the two leagues.  My two cents on the matter: more lacrosse + more opportunity for players to play at the highest level = grows the game.

The PLL plays a 14 week schedule starting in June.  10 regular season games followed by playoffs.  Rules and field dimensions differ from MLL and World Lacrosse rules but it makes for some fast paced field lacrosse!

Would highly recommend catching a game on TV or live if you can.  I wish this new league all the best!  More Lacrosse the better!
