Help England Defend European Title
England Men’s Lacrosse Team
Team England’s Men’s Lacrosse Team is currently training hard for this summer’s 2016 ELF European Lacrosse Championships, taking place in Budapest, Hungary in July.
England are the reigning European lacrosse champion and will face tough competition when they attempt to defend their title this summer.
As a non-Commonwealth, non-Olympic sport, elite lacrosse receives no funding and therefore the players cover all expenses; travel, accommodation, equipment, uniforms, tournament fees, and field rental costs are all covered by the players and coaching staff.
We are hoping to assist the players who are balancing full-time jobs with being an elite level athlete and would appreciate any help you can give us in doing this.
Thank you for your support. It means everything to this hard-working team.
