DULUTH, GA. - The Georgia Swarm are excited to announce their inaugural Marvel Super Hero™ Night, taking place on Friday, April 19 at 7:30 PM EST at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Field at Gas South Arena. Friday's game is the regular season finale for the playoff-bound Swarm as they face off against the Rochester Knighthawks.

Marvel Super Hero™ Night is the result of a multi-year partnership between the National Lacrosse League and Marvel, aimed at celebrating and promoting the Indigenous origin story of lacrosse through engaging game-specific promotions.

Fans can look forward to seeing Swarm players sporting special Thor-inspired Marvel jerseys for this game. These exclusive jerseys will be signed by the players and auctioned on Dash Action until 9 PM on Friday, April 19.

Young fans in attendance will receive custom comic books titled "The Legends of Lax," featuring players Lyle Thompson, Jordan MacIntosh, and Shayne Jackson on the cover. This comic, crafted by author Paul Allor and illustrated by Indigenous creator Shaun Beyale, with cover art by JL Giles, will be a cherished collectible for lacrosse and Marvel enthusiasts alike.

In addition to the jersey auction, fans can purchase Marvel t-shirts featuring Lyle Thompson as part of a special package starting at just $35 which includes a game ticket. These packages are available for purchase online, with a limited number of Marvel t-shirts also available at the team store on game day.

To add to the excitement, fans are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Marvel characters and participate in the arena's costume contest. Additionally, fans who purchase tickets can grab a special superhero poster featuring forward Lyle Thompson & goalie Brett Dobson.

As the Georgia Swarm head into Marvel Super Hero™ Night and their final regular season game with a 10-7 record, which ranks them fourth overall in the league, they have already secured a spot in the NLL Playoffs. A win on Friday for the Swarm would clinch a home playoff game to be played at Gas South Arena on Friday, April 26 at 7:30 PM.
