The inaugural season of the Washington Stealth is set to begin on Saturday,
January 9 at the Comcast Arena at Everett. The Stealth’s opponent has yet to be announced with the
league-wide schedule to be released in the coming weeks, but preparations are
being made to make opening night at the Comcast Arena the biggest event in
Washington lacrosse history.
"We are fortunate to get the first weekend after the holidays for our 2010 season opener,” said Stealth owner Denise Watkins. “Opening night will be a tremendous event to kick off our first season at the Comcast Arena. With great seats selling fast, fans may make deposits now for low-priced season tickets that will bring the whole family together from January through April. We are so confident that Washington will love this, we are offering a money back guarantee for season seat buyers."
The first ball will be dropped at 7:30pm on January 9 as Colin Doyle, Paul Rabil and the boys in Red and Black look to return to the National Lacrosse League playoffs and bring home the Champion’s Cup (the NLL’s Championship Trophy). The Stealth have reached the playoffs in each of the last three seasons, losing in the West Division Final in two of those three appearances. Last season, the Stealth lost in the West Finals to the eventual NLL Champion Calgary Roughnecks.
The NLL regular season consists of 16 games that are played from January through April. Typically, games are held once a week on Friday or Saturday nights. Playoffs are held in May, with two interdivisional rounds followed by the Champion’s Cup Final played between the top teams in the East and West Divisions.
Season tickets for the first season of professional lacrosse in Washington are now available. Season seats start at just $75 and include a number of great benefits not available with group or single game tickets. For more information, log on to www.stealthlax.com or call 877-MY-75-TIX.
