2014 FIL World Championships

"The fastest sport on two feet" is coming to Denver, July 10-19, 2014, showcasing the world's greatest lacrosse players.

The Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship brings the top men's lacrosse players from across the world to Dick's Sporting Goods Park for an action packed series of matches. The United States will defend its crown, having defeated Canada in the 2010 championship in Manchester, England. A record 38 nations will participate in this year's world championship and will play 142 games over 10 days, beginning with a rematch of the last world championship game. Whether you're a dyed-in-the-wool fan or new to the exciting sport of pro lacrosse, you don't want to miss the FIL World Championship!

HISTORY

The FIL World Championship traces its roots to a four-team international tournament in 1967. The first official FIL World Championship took place in 1974 and has been held every year since. The United States has won eight of the 10 FIL world championships contested with Canada winning in 1978 and 2006. This is the first time the world championships have been held in the U.S. since 1998.

Lacrosse In Denver

Thanks to the Colorado Mammoth, lacrosse is gaining a fervent following in The Mile High City. The team is part of the growing National Lacrosse League and plays home games at the Pepsi Center, where they often attract crowds rivaling those of the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche. The season runs from December to April.

Even more Major League lacrosse thrills can be found at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, where the Denver Outlaws take on all comers May through August. The team is young, hungry, and provides a great introduction to this exciting sport.
