Are you interested in watching College and Professional lacrosse games but don’t know where to find them? Lacrosse doesn’t get as much coverage as some other sports, but there are still plenty of ways to watch on TV and online while learning more about the game!
In 2016 the ESPN networks presented around 100 Men’s and Women’s Division 1 Lacrosse games, including major conference championship games and the Division 1 Lacrosse Championship tournaments. Many of the games were broadcasted on ESPNU, some on ESPN2, and the rest were available on ESPN3 (http://www.espn.com/watchespn), an online streaming service that provides live streams and replays (as long as you login with your cable provider information). Broadcasts of certain games are also available on NCAA.com, and other high-profile matchups can be seen throughout the year on Fox/Fox Sports and CBS Sports Network.
Professional lacrosse coverage is also a little hard to find but it’s definitely there! Major League Lacrosse playoff games are broadcasted on CBS Sports Network, and some regular season games can be seen on Comcast Sports Network, as well as online through ESPN3.
If you want even more in-depth lacrosse coverage, a Lax Sports Network subscription is available for $7.99 per month. LSN delivers 24/7 access to Live and On-Demand coverage of amateur, collegiate, and professional lacrosse games, as well as the latest lacrosse news and developmental videos. This is a great option if you can’t get enough lacrosse, as you’ll be able to watch live games throughout the year on your phone or computer.
Lacrosse continues to be one of the fastest growing sports every year, so TV coverage will only increase as long as the game keeps growing. Stay tuned for more detailed schedules as we get closer to the 2017 Lacrosse season!
