(LAS) Monday was an exciting day for German box lacrosse as the official roster for the 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championship was announced.
Although German box lacrosse clubs like the German Gents and powerhouse Deutschland Adler are no stranger to international competition, this will be the first World Indoor Lacrosse Championship for the country of Germany.
Many of the players on the 23-man roster compete with Deutschland Adler, including German box lacrosse veterans Jamie Plunkett and Artjom Meriasch.
The games begin on September 18th and conclude with the Bronze and Gold Medal matches in Syracuse’s world-famous Carrier Dome. The Germans have also named four alternates to their final roster.

While Deutschland Adler has no affiliation with the DLaxV, Germany’s governing body for lacrosse, many of the club’s top names will be suiting up for the German National Team this fall.
