“STX has been an industry leader and innovator since the very first synthetic head in 1970, and we’re excited to partner with such a forward thinking company,” adds Michael Rabil, CEO and Co-Founder of the PLL. “STX shares in our vision of a player-driven league and we look forward to building the future together.”
The partnership will showcase STX sponsored athletes — a list that includes such stars as Kyle Harrison, Marcus Holman and Will Manny — competing with their STX equipment during the PLL’s inaugural season. Additionally, STX will launch interactive experiences on site at PLL game weekends, allowing fans of all ages to engage with STX’s innovative products and PLL’s world-class athletes.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Premier Lacrosse League and provide the opportunity for the top players in the game to compete in our equipment,” explains Ed Saunders, VP of Sales and Marketing for STX. “The PLL is providing players an opportunity to pursue lacrosse in a full time capacity like never before, and we’re excited to join that movement.”
As part of the announcement, PLL and STX have released an exclusive video showcasing Harrison’s journey to becoming a star at the professional level. Harrison, an STX athlete since graduating from Johns Hopkins in 2005, is the Director of Player Relations for the PLL, and will be onsite at LaxCon later this week to promote the partnership.
