Iroquois Nationals vs. Team Canada: November 17th

Two of the best lacrosse teams in the world will meet this Sunday at 2:00 pm, November 17th- 2013 in the Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada. The Iroquois Nationals Indoor Lacrosse Team is featured in an exhibition match with Team Canada. Lacrosse enthusiasts know well that these two teams always put on a world-class performance whenever they meet for a game.

Événements Sportifs Rooths enterprise, a Canadian business composed of entrepreneurs and several former Canadian lacrosse alumni, is hosting this event in part to serve as a lacrosse fund raiser for Team Canada while also a financial contributor to the Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse organization for their participation.

For the Iroquois Nationals it is a preliminary event to highlight the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships (WILC) in 2015, hosted by the Haudenosaunee at the Onondaga Nation located near Syracuse, New York. The WILC 2015 in September 18-23, 2015, is the first time an Indigenous Nation will host an international sporting championship.

This Federation of International Lacrosse sanctioned indoor lacrosse game will meet several Iroquois National program objectives. First, this event provides a time to celebrate our future and past athletes with a pair of U-17 indigenous youth exhibition lacrosse games and an indigenous master’s lacrosse game scheduled prior to the 2:00pm main event start time on Sunday at the Bell Centre. Secondly, it supports the Iroquois Nationals officiating program launched in 2011, with two indigenous referees officiating in this Sunday’s game.
