Yesterday we brought some news about the Edmonton Rush downplaying a rumor of moving to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Late in the afternoon yesterday the team released an official statement about the rumors, saying in 2014 they will remain in Edmonton.
The Edmonton Rush is full speed ahead to the 2014 Season on Crystal Glass Field at Rexall Place. Season Ticket renewals are at a franchise high and renewing fast. The Edmonton Rush are actively soliciting new season ticket sales for next season, we continue to grow and promote the game of lacrosse in the City of Edmonton.
The discussions from the City of Saskatoon to franchise a professional lacrosse team is great news for the National Lacrosse League. The sport of lacrosse is growing fast in communities in North American and at a high demand for fans. The Edmonton Rush are very supportive to see the sport of lacrosse grow and benefit the NLL league.
The focus for the Edmonton Rush is growing the sport of lacrosse in the City of Edmonton, growing stronger relationships with current sponsors, new sponsors, current season ticket holders and most important new season ticket holders.
The Edmonton Rush’s 2013 National Lacrosse League season was another strong campaign that provided a good look into the exciting potential of the club.
Although the Rush’s season ended last Saturday with a disappointing loss to the Washington Stealth in the West Division Semi-Final, the year became a good indicator of what’s to come for the Black and Silver along with their passionate, loyal fans. The Rush took major steps this season in building towards something big, and there’s every expectation that the team will be a force in 2014 – a year in which the NLL expands to an 18-game regular-season schedule.
The rest of the release recapped the 2013 season.
