The Premier Lacrosse League has announced that week five of the inaugural 2019 PLL season will be played in Atlanta at Georgia State Stadium. The dates for the PLL’s stop in Atlanta will be Friday, June 28th and Saturday, June 29th. 

This announcement comes after the PLL announced their week four stop in Baltimore at Homewood Field last week. Atlanta joins Boston, New York, Chicago, and Baltimore as announced host cities for the 2019 PLL season. 

Georgia State Stadium will play host to the PLL in week five. Georgia State Stadium is the home of the Georgia State Panthers football team. Prior to Georgia State being the primary tenants, it was called Centennial Olympic Stadium and used in the 1996 summer olympics. From 1997 to 2016 it was known as Turner Field and was home to the MLB’s Atlanta Braves. 

Atlanta has been labeled by some as “The Lacrosse Capital of the South.” The Atlanta area has seen tremendous growth over the past decade and more. Every year there are more players from Georgia and the Atlanta area going to play college lacrosse at a high level. The PLL coming to Atlanta just adds to the buzzing lacrosse scene that has taken root in Atlanta over the past decade or so.

  1. How is this going to work? Are all of the games going to be played in the same city on any given weekend? So the first weeks games will ALL be at Gillette and then the next week all of the games will be in Jersey (but we’ll call it NY because saying Jersey does nothing for the gate)?
