Schedule UPDATE for FIL 2016 Men’s U19s

Schedule UPDATE for FIL 2016 Men’s U19s

(TORONTO, ONTARIO) The Federation of International Lacrosse has UPDATED the schedule for the 2016 FIL U19 Men’s World Lacrosse Championship to take place at Coquitlam Town Centre in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada from July 7-16, 2016.

Fifteen teams will compete for the world title including Blue Division teams Canada, the United States, the Iroquois Nationals, Australia and England; Red Division teams Israel, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Germany and Mexico; and Green Division entries from Spain, China, Ireland, Scotland and Korea. This 2016 world tournament will be the debut at the U19 level for half of the teams: Israel, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mexico, Spain, China and Ireland.

The United States has won all seven previous Under 19 world championship tournaments since they commenced in 1988. But with the international growth of the game and parity at the top, evidenced by two U.S. losses in the last U-19 worlds held in Turku, Finland, in the round-robin stage, anything is possible in 2016. The last tournament was held in 2012 in Finland, with the United States defeating Canada in the championship final.
