On Monday morning, Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced that Denver will host the 2019 MLL semifinals and championship games from October 4th-6th. This marks the first time that the MLL will play their championship game in Denver, known by many as the Lacrosse Capital of The West.
The MLL semifinals will be played on October 4th at Peter Barton Stadium, sitting on the campus of the University of Denver. The MLL championship game will be played at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on October 6th. ESPN 2 will broadcast the 2019 MLL Championship game.
Both Peter Barton Stadium and Dick’s Sporting Goods Park know how to put on high quality lacrosse events, and have done so in the past. Peter Barton Stadium is the home of the Denver Pioneers and hosted the Big East Tournament this past season. Dick’s Sporting Goods Park is home to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer and hosted the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships.
In addition, this will be the first time since the 2013 season that the MLL will host the semifinals and championship on the same weekend, and will be the latest the championship has ever been played in the league’s 19-year history.
