FIL will stage a four-day, six-team Women’s Lacrosse Tournament August 4-7 at the 2017 IWGA World Games. Teams have yet to be determined, however, the order of finish at the 2013 Women’s World Cup in Oshawa will factor heavily in the selection of the first five teams, with host Poland as the sixth team.
