Since Stadium Journey released its rankings of the nine arena experiences in the National Lacrosse League in 2013, one of the teams has relocated (the Washington Stealth moved to Vancouver for the 2014 season). As a result, it is time to revise the list and see how all the locations are looking now.
We evaluate the stadium experience by looking at the food and beverages available at the facility, as well as the overall atmosphere, the neighborhood, the fans, access, return on investment and any extra features the stadium has to offer. Our primary tiebreaker is “crowd reviews” as submitted by our members.
Of note is that no arena in the NLL scored worse than a 3.1 out of five, with an average score of 3.8, reaffirming (in my humble opinion) that indoor lacrosse is the best spectator sport ever invented.
