Phillylacrosse.com, Posted 6/2/20 – From Press Release
World Lacrosse announced today that its senior-level Men’s World Championship, originally scheduled for 2022, is being moved back one year to 2023 in response to other changes in the international sport calendar, to better accommodate athlete availability and to ease financial burden on its member-National Governing Bodies.
With the Tokyo Olympic Games being moved to 2021, The World Games – in which women’s and men’s lacrosse both will be featured for the first time — has been moved to 2022. As a result, the World Lacrosse Board of Directors today approved a recommendation from Management to move the senior-level Men’s World Championship back one year to 2023. The event will take place in Los Angeles, California, USA in the July-September timeframe.
With the change, the revised World Lacrosse major event calendar for the next four years is as follows:
2021 World Lacrosse Men’s U20 World Championship
June 17-26, 2021
2021 World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship
July 7-17, 2021
Towson, Maryland, USA
The World Games
July 7-17, 2022
Birmingham, Alabama, USA
2023 World Lacrosse Men’s World Championship
