Nll Stars Hit Turf At Wilc 2015

National Lacrosse League stars are ready to shine bright at the 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championship hosted by the Onondaga Nation with 13 countries competing on the sport’s biggest international stage from Sept. 18-27. Mark Donahue from Lacrosse All-Stars recently helped highlight the 55 NLL pros set to star across seven nations including three powerhouses in the Canadian, Iroquois and U.S. squads.

“Since the WILC 2015 kicks off this week, we thought it’d be nice to hook you guys up with a list of all 55 of the NLL stars you’ll see competing in the games!” Donahue writes. “Obviously Canada is going to lead the way on this list considering every member of the roster are currently active NLL stars, but there’s some other familiar faces suiting up for 6 other nations.”
