LOS ANGELES, Calif. — The Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) has announced that the league will postpone the start of its 2020 season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 season was scheduled to begin play on May 29-30 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

“The health of our players, coaches, fans and colleagues are of paramount importance to us as we go through this unprecedented time,” says PLL Co-Founder and CEO Mike Rabil. “As a league, we will continue to adhere to guidelines administered by the CDC, respective state governments, and our hosting venues. This was a difficult decision for our league but a necessary measure to ensure the safety of all parties.”

The PLL plans to provide the public with an update on a new start date for the 2020 season in May.

In the interim, the PLL will be reaching out directly to existing ticket purchasers to communicate options and next steps.

Last Friday, Major League Lacrosse announced its plan to delay the beginning of its regular season. On Wednesday, the National Lacrosse League canceled the remainder of the 2020 regular season. It will seek possible postseason opportunities.
