Daily schedule of The World Games 2017

The International World Games Association announced the daily schedule of the sports program for the 10th edition of these games in Wroclaw/Poland 2017.

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.
