VANCOUVER, BC (Thursday, June 27, 2013) – The Langley Events Centre will be the
new home of professional lacrosse in British Columbia, as the National Lacrosse
League (NLL) Board of Governors unanimously approved the relocation of the
Stealth franchise from its previous home in Everett, Washington to the Metro
Vancouver area effective immediately. The Vancouver Stealth will begin play at
the LEC in the 2014 NLL season.
The Stealth have been one of the most successful franchises in the nine team
league, having reached the finals three of the last four seasons, including
this most recent year (which was hosted at the LEC) and winning the
Championship in 2010.
The Stealth and the Langley Events Centre will be hosting a press conference on
July 2 in which information pertaining to ticket pricing, season ticket availability, sponsorship opportunities and more plans will be announced. The press conference will also provide the opportunity to hear from and meet NLL Commissioner George Daniel, the Stealth ownership, staff, and players.
