Saskatoon group exploring NLL options

There’s a lot of lacrosse in Saskatoon these days, along with a lot of optimism. Just 10 years ago, the region in Saskatchewan had 100 registered players. Today, it’s closer to 750 and the province is producing more players for provincial box teams as well as NCAA schools in the U.S. Randy Trobak has been part of that growth and he told the Saskatoon StarPhoenix this is just the start. He’s got so much faith in the game that he’s part of a group looking for investors to bring a National Lacrosse League team to Saskatoon, perhaps within 2 years. “I think we’re destined to get an NLL team here in Saskatoon,” Trobak said. “The NLL is looking to grow in areas. What better province to put a franchise in. It’s one of the most sports-supported provinces in this country. Professional lacrosse here would be a huge success.” NLL commissioner George Daniel told ILIndoor that “the NLL is interested in considering Saskatoon or any other major Canadian market for an expansion franchise.”
