San Diego to host '23 World Lacrosse men's championship

By Chris Smith

World Lacrosse has awarded the '23 men’s world championship to San Diego. Games will be played at San Diego State Univ. and the Univ. of San Diego, with SDSU’s under-construction Snapdragon Stadium hosting ceremonies and premier matches. The event had originally been scheduled to take place in British Columbia later this year, but the tournament was postponed because of health concerns related to COVID-19. The shift in location puts the world championship in the backyard of L.A. as USA Lacrosse and World Lacrosse -- which is led by former USOPC CEO Jim Scherr -- continue to pursue a place for the sport on the LA28 Olympic program. Other sports vying for one of the few remaining spots on the program include cricket, flag football, pickleball and ultimate frisbee. The San Diego 2023 Organizing Committee is chaired by Nets Owner Joe Tsai, who is also an investor in the Premier Lacrosse League and owns the National Lacrosse League’s San Diego Seals and upcoming expansion team in Las Vegas.
