National Lacrosse League Commissioner George Daniel has issued a statement following the Edmonton Journal article regarding the Edmonton Rush that was published on Wednesday, May 20.
“The NLL strongly believes in the Edmonton market,” Daniel said. “The NLL can prosper in Edmonton under the right business conditions. It is our understanding that the current facility lease for the Rush expires at the end of the season. It is our hope that Bruce Urban can secure the necessary arrangements to make that happen to ensure the long-term viability of the NLL in Edmonton.”
