The National Lacrosse League announced that StringKing, manufacturers of the highest performing sticks in lacrosse, will continue as an official lacrosse equipment supplier for the next three years.
StringKing agreed to a three-year extension to be an official shaft, head and mesh supplier, making StringKing products available to players at the highest level of indoor lacrosse.
“This agreement with StringKing ensures that the NLL will continue to have top-quality equipment available to the best lacrosse athletes in the world,” said Kevin Morgan, Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer of the NLL. “The distinction of StringKing products aligns perfectly with the world-class talent of our athletes, forming a perfect partnership on the biggest lacrosse stage. We look forward to the incredible new memories that will take place in the upcoming 34th NLL season involving StringKing and the NLL.”
In 2015 and 2016, StringKing served as the League’s official mesh provider. For the 2017 season, in addition to supplying mesh, StringKing began providing lacrosse stick shafts and heads to the League. StringKing will also continue its designation as a Presenting Partner of highlight clips throughout the season and will be an official sponsor of the League’s “Top Plays of the Week”.
StringKing is committed to making premier, high-performance equipment in lacrosse in order to give players access to best-in-class products. Its first line of heads and shafts quickly became top sellers in the industry, with many prominent players backing the line of merchandise including Buffalo Bandits’ Shawn Evans, Colorado Mammoth’s Jeremy Noble and Joey Cupido as well as Philadelphia Wings’ Blaze Riorden.
“We at StringKing are thrilled to be renewing our partnership with the NLL,” said Jake McCampbell, StringKing Co-Founder and President. “We aim to make the best heads, mesh, and shafts in the game for the best players in the game and working with the NLL allows us that opportunity. The NLL has always been a leader in the growth of lacrosse. Our continued partnership not only lets us see our products used by the best players in the world but will also help us in our mission to bring lacrosse to as many players and fans as possible. We’re excited for what the future holds.”
Currently there are 10 NLL players signed with StringKing. In partnership with the NLL, StringKing has contributed to the National Lacrosse League’s 33-year legacy as the most successful lacrosse league in the world. Making both in impact on the floor, through equipment that fosters competitive play amongst the world’s most elite lacrosse players, StringKing and the NLL have additionally created a youth movement to grow the game. Donating equipment and seeing youth participation, in camps and clinics run by NLL athletes such as Buffalo’s Shawn Evan, both StringKing and the NLL are poised to continue the legacy of the National Lacrosse League and the sport of lacrosse.
