The Premier Lacrosse League today announced its entrance in the sports world, bringing fast-paced action, the world’s top players, unprecedented access to the game for fans in venue and at home, and a unique tour-based model to professional lacrosse. Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) will deliver what the lacrosse community has been seeking: a true home for the sport with the best players, a strong business model, significant financial support, national media coverage through an exclusive agreement with NBC Sports Group, and a unique touring structure that will better serve players and fans.
Premier Lacrosse League, which is co-founded by the sport’s most high-profile player and personality, Paul Rabil, along with his brother, serial entrepreneur and investor, Mike Rabil, will provide players with full-time wages, equity in PLL, and benefits – becoming the first major North American professional team sports league that offers equity to the players.
