Fairfield University will be the league’s first site in Connecticut.

The Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) powered by Ticketmaster announced on Wednesday that the league will travel to Connecticut for the first time ever. Conway Field at Rafferty Stadium at Fairfield University will host four games on July 23-24.

"There's a rich history of lacrosse in the state of Connecticut — home to nearly a dozen of our pros," said co-founder and CEO Michael Rabil. "We're thrilled to host games at Fairfield's Rafferty Stadium. Lastly, Connecticut needs more professional sports teams, so we wanted to give the lacrosse loving community a chance to see the PLL stars up close."

Saturday, July 23 will feature a doubleheader beginning at 5 p.m. followed by a Sunday, July 24 twin bill beginning at 2 p.m.

"We are thrilled to welcome the Premier Lacrosse League to the Fairfield University campus this summer," said Director of Athletics Paul Schlickmann. "The PLL will bring national exposure to our institution and showcase Conway Field at Rafferty Stadium as an exceptional venue for the sport of lacrosse."

Eight Premier Lacrosse League players hail from the state of Connecticut, including Stags’ standout midfielder Brent Adams ’12 of Norwalk. In addition, former Fairfield head coach Andy Copelan is the leader of the league’s Waterdogs LC with former Stag Matt Bocklet on his coaching staff.

"This is the first time that the Premier Lacrosse League will hold its games anywhere in Connecticut and we congratulate Fairfield University for hosting," said Robert Murdock, President of the Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau (CTmeetings), the State's official meetings and sports event sales and marketing organization. "This event will mean big business for Connecticut as the athletes, officials, families, and fans will stay in area hotels, dine in restaurants, shop, and visit nearby attractions."
