Season Tickets on Sale Today.
Garden City, NY - November 29, 2018 - The New York Lizards, three-time Major League Lacrosse Steinfeld Cup Winners, today announced its 2019 game schedule, with an expanded season that begins the Friday after Memorial Day Weekend and running through September. Season tickets are now on sale at 855-NYLizards or at the NY Lizards website here. Early bird pricing is available through December 20, 2018.
The Lizards’ season will consist of eight home and eight away games, with home contests played at Shuart Stadium at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY.
“A new schedule means the excitement of a new season, and it signals the true beginning of the new year as you map out your off-season and prepare,” said Lizards General Manager Joe Spallina. “Opening night is exciting but playing one of your biggest rivals adds another layer on top of everything that will be happening. It’s two of the more storied franchises in the league on opening night and that’s fun.”
The home opener will take place on Friday, May 31 against the defending champion Denver Outlaws which will also feature the inaugural Police Athletic League (PAL) Cup game in which the top ranked middle school teams from Nassau and Suffolk Counties will play against each other before the game.
“Our 2018 season was a huge success and we’re looking forward to capitalizing on that in 2019,” said Jeffrey Rudnick, CEO of the New York Lizards. “Being a season ticket holder with the Lizards enables fans to take advantage of many great opportunities, including access to exclusive team events, pre-game meet and greets with the Lizards players, discounts on merchandise and clinics, and so much more."
All early bird season ticket buyers will be entered into a raffle to win a weekly prize, such as an official Lizards helmet, a customized, authentic Lizards jersey, or an ultimate Lizards experience that includes being an honorary water boy/girl for opening night and a seat on the Lizards bench along with a custom replica jersey.
Game times for home games are subject to change and additional details regarding promotional events and group outings will be announced at a later date. Scheduling is provided by GotPro, the official scheduling partner of MLL.
