Minnesota Swarm Tickets

Minnesota Swarm tickets

Minnesota Swarm Schedule

Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States and anyone who attends a game is quick to see exactly why. The speed and athleticism on display during a lacrosse game is unlike that in any other sport, and when the game is moved indoors the intensity is ratcheted up even further. The Minnesota Swarm of the National Lacrosse League have long been one of the most popular teams in the league and regularly pack the Xcel Energy Center. While lacrosse may not generally be the first thing that outsiders think of when they hear of Minnesota, the Swarm have taken the city by storm in their near decade of existence. Xcel Energy Center is bursting with energy during Minnesota Swarm home games, giving them perhaps the best home field advantage in the entire NLL. Be sure to get your hands on some Minnesota Swarm tickets and get in on all of the action!

On Saturday, February 8th another NLL powerhouse, the Calgary Roughnecks come to Xcel Energy Center looking to take down the Swarm on their home field. This is never a task that is easy to accomplish as the Swarm have historically had an incredible home record due to their incredible crowd support and home field advantage. Saturday, April 19th sees another monstrous game take place at Xcel Energy Center when bitter rivals the Colorado Mammoth will be hitting the field to square off against the Swarm. These are always some of the most intense games of the season and you will not want to miss a second of the action. Be sure to check out all of the Minnesota Swarm's home schedule right here on StubHub.


The Team

The Minnesota Swarm was founded in 2004 when the Minnesota Wild of the NHL purchased the Montreal Express, a then-dormant box lacrosse team and brought them to Minnesota to share the Xcel Energy Center. Right from the start the Swarm were a hit with their first exhibition game bringing in over 14,000 fans and setting a National Lacrosse League record for attendance. Several players and officials for the Swarm have received league wide honors including Defensive Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Transition Player of the Year, GM of the Year, Executive of the Year, and have won the scoring title, the Tom Borrelli Awarad and the Les Bartley Award. Coach Joe Sullivan will surely be looking to continue the club's upswing during the last few seasons and ideally help guide the Swarm to an NLL Championship in 2014.


The Experience

Lacrosse fans in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the fanaticism surrounding box lacrosse and Minnesota Swarm fans are some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire NLL. On game day at Xcel Energy Center, the fans file in and take their seats when the cheering and chanting begins. As the clock winds down closer and closer to the opening faceoff the crowd works itself into a frenzy. Finally both teams are ready for face off and the excitement really begins. Thunderous, bone rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, dazzling shots, and tremendous saves set the arena on fire for the following four quarters of world class box lacrosse. By the time the final buzzer sounds your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging from clapping and giving high fives and you will already be planning a return trip.


The League

The National Lacrosse League is a nine team indoor lacrosse league in North America that features five teams in Canada and four in the United States all competing for the Champions Cup. Aside from being a box lacrosse league, as opposed to an outdoor league, the NLL distinguishes itself by holding its season during the winter and spring while other professional, collegiate, and high school lacrosse is held during the spring and summer. Its inaugural season was in 1987 and the teams play 18 regular season games and are divided into the Eastern and Western Conference. The league sprung out of the former Major Indoor Lacrosse League, taking teams from that former league and adding two new expansion teams.


Trivia

The name Minnesota Swarm was chosen over three other finalists: the Thrill, the Rush, and the Bullheads. The team took part in a promotional activity in 2007 when they allowed a local sportscaster to sign a one day contract with the team to play in their home opener. Eric Perkins played in the game and taunted the Swarm's opponents in the game, the Chicago Shamrox. Although Perkins only played eight seconds during the loss, the Swarm retired his number, 66. In 2008 the Swarm set an NLL record by scoring the first 12 goals in a game against the New York Titans, going up 12 to 0 before the Titans were finally able to score.
