We're Back: Our 2020 Schedule Is Here
Major League Lacrosse announced today that the 2020 season will be played in Annapolis, Maryland, beginning July 16th with a two-day training camp, with the regular season kicking off July 18th. The week-long season will conclude with a final-four playoff the weekend of July 25-26. The city of Annapolis will play host to all six MLL teams, with the entirety of the 2020 season broadcast national on the ESPN family of networks.
The Boston Cannons will travel to Annapolis for the 2020 season, with games being played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The stadium is home to the Chesapeake Bayhawks, who are the reigning MLL Champions. The Cannons will play each of the league's other five teams one time over the course of the first week of the 10-day event, with the potential to play in the four-team semi-final over the July 25-26 weekend.
The 2020 season will mark the 20th anniversary season for both the Boston Cannons and for Major League Lacrosse. The Boston Cannons will be celebrating their 20th anniversary throughout 2020.
"The Boston Cannons organization is excited to get on the field for our 20th anniversary season," said Cannons President Ian Frenette. "While we're disappointed that we are not able to play in front of our hometown fans at Veterans Memorial Stadium, we're thrilled to be able to play in 2020, during this unprecedented time."
Under the guidance of a team of medical professionals, MLL has developed a comprehensive strategy to ensure the health and safety of all players, staff and personnel on-site for the entirety of the 2020 season. The league has an established COVID Safety Protocol Officer, who will oversee to the adherence and execution of the safety plan.
Major League Lacrosse is working closely with Cascade to offer players access to Cascade's newly developed face shield, which is a completely clear, physical barrier designed specifically for the SEI-Certified Cascade helmets.
In addition to national availability on the ESPN family of networks, Boston Cannons games will be available locally on NBC Sports Boston.
