Unfortunately, due to the forecasted temperatures and the threat of frost, the grass surface at Citizens Bank Park cannot be used for lacrosse games Friday night.Charity Showdown

The 2014 Philly Charity Showdown will be held nearby at the South Philadelphia Athletic Field at 10th and Bigler Streets. This is right across I-76 from the ballpark (see graphic). Additionally there is plenty of space at the Stadium to warm up. Players should arrive dressed in their lacrosse uniforms and gear.

Despite the change in playing surface, the cause of the event has not changed. NXTsports has been working hard on this event for more than six months and remain on track to raise over $30,000 to support the Thomas Jefferson University Foundation’s Comprehensive Concussion Center. Accordingly, NXTsports still plans to donate all net ticket proceeds to the Jefferson Hospital Concussion Center. If any advance ticket buyers, though, wish to request a refund due to this development, NXTsports will honor those requests and will begin processing them within a week.
