October 14, 2021 - National Lacrosse League (NLL) - Albany FireWolves News Release

ALBANY, NEW YORK - The Albany FireWolves, of the National Lacrosse League (NLL), today announce that the team has partnered with the Crowne Plaza Albany - Desmond Hotel ahead of the team's inaugural season. The Desmond will serve as the official hotel of the Albany FireWolves and will accommodate the Albany FireWolves players and coaches for all FireWolves home games. In addition, fans will receive a discount at the Crowne Plaza Albany - Desmond Hotel for their hotel needs around FireWolves games.

"The partnership we developed with the Desmond Hotel will showcase the Capital Region at its finest for our team," said George Manias, President of the FireWolves. "I wanted our players and coaches to feel like they are at home when they arrive for our games and the Desmond does just that. The feel of the newly renovated hotel will offer our players and coaches all the comforts of home and the location could not be more ideal with the proximity to the airport, the Times Union Center and the region's finest restaurants and establishments. I really want our guys to enjoy their time in Albany and I feel we hit the mark with this partnership. I want to thank the Desmond family and team for partnering with us on this very important component to ensuring our players and coaches are well situated, so they can purely focus on winning."

The Desmond Hotel has been a family-owned and operated business since 1974 and remains one of the few privately owned and independently managed hotels in the Capital Region. In April of 2021, the hotel completed a two-year renovation project and became an official Crowne Plaza branded hotel within IHG (InterContinental Hotel Groups).

"The Desmond has a long history of supporting the Albany community, and we are excited to partner with this new sports team entering the Capital District," said Tyler Desmond, General Manager of the Desmond Hotel. "We look forward to welcoming the players and visiting fans to the Albany area, and we wish the FireWolves the best of luck on their inaugural season."
