Mann Cup 2013 Media Notes
August 31, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – The Mann Cup games to be played beginning on Sept. 6th in Victoria will have a 7:00PM start time. The start time of 7:00PM was selected based on information provided by fans, the media and potential subscribers to the webcasts which will be available at the WLA website theboxrocks.com.
The earlier start time is family friendly, as several of the games in the series will be held on school nights. The league has been receiving feedback from fans of all ages that the earlier start time is preferred. During the season, an earlier start time was not an option, because travelling teams already were on a tight schedule.
In addition, lacrosse fans in Eastern Canada and the U.S had expressed that an earlier start time was preferred so that fans could start viewing at 10:00PM rather than 11:00PM, the late time seen by many as being prohibitive.
Lastly, the media has expressed that an earlier start time would allow many game reporters and the publishers of box scores to meet press deadlines.
The league thanks those fans, members of the media and all those who helped in the process.
