Professional lacrosse is coming back to Philadelphia, according to a report on csnphilly.com.
The report said that Comcast Spectacor is set to acquire a National Lacrosse League franchise, and that details will be provided at a press conference Thursday at 11 a.m. in the Wells Fargo Center. The new franchise will become the 10th team in the NLL, the report said.
Of course, the Philadelphia Wings were a mainstay in the NLL for years, playing in the NLL from 1986 to 2014 when they moved to Connecticut and became the New England Black Wolves.
The report said that Comcast Spectacor president and CEO Dave Scott, as well as NLL commissioner Nick Sakiewicz, will be at the press conference.
