The New England Black Wolves, flying the Connecticut lacrosse flag
Niche sports like lacrosse don't make international headlines, but it's big news in the US. The New England Black Wolves are a professional indoor lacrosse team that plays out of the state of Connecticut. They play an exciting, fast-moving game that has seen them contest divisional finals of the National Lacrosse League (NLL). If this is your sport you'll be thrilled that you can buy or sell New England Black Wolves tickets on StubHub.
A name change and a move to Connecticut
The New England Black Wolves franchise is partly owned by the Native American Mohegan tribe, along with lobbyist and Princeton public affairs adviser, Brad Brewster, and consequently play their home games at the Mohegan Sun Arena in the Connecticut Town of Montville. They play what is known as box lacrosse, an indoor version of the game that is hugely popular in the States. The team was previously known as the Philadelphia Wings, when they were based in Pennsylvania, playing at the Wells Fargo Center up until 2014. They were a highly successful team and won 6 national titles, a record that the Black Wolves unfortunately failed to sustain in its first few seasons. (The Philadelphia Wings have since been resurrected, although this is a completely new franchise and team.) The Black Wolves have always been contenders however, making the Eastern division playoff finals and semifinals every year from 2016 to 2019. This was under new coach Glenn Clark, who took over from Blaine Harrison, whose only season had failed to see the team make the playoffs. The team is back on the rise, so New England Black Wolves tickets are a good way to check out some top-class indoor lacrosse over in the US.
Fast and exciting box lacrosse
The New England Black Wolves got off to a very good start in their first home game of the season, and it was the Buffalo Bandits that were unfortunate participants in this little piece of team history, on the losing side. Since then, the black, orange, and white strip of the club has become a popular item in sports stores in Uncasville, the suburb of Montville where the team has its headquarters. This is the centre of the lacrosse community in New England, so when you get New England Black Wolves tickets you're stepping into a hotbed of the game that will thrill any fan. The level of skill is really high, and the lightning fast sport really comes alive in an indoor arena. The Mohegan Sun Arena can hold about 10,000 lacrosse fans, so the scale is pretty awesome as well. Have a look on StubHub during the US lacrosse season and grab your own seat to a game. The best ones are usually the Eastern division match-ups against teams like New York Riptide and Georgia Swarm.
