Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier outdoor professional lacrosse league, announced today the 2017 MLL All-Star Game will be played in Sacramento, CA at Bonney Field, home to Sacramento Republic FC of the United Soccer League on Saturday, July 8. The state of California will host the MLL All-Star Game for the second straight year after the 2016 contest was held in Fullerton.
“The sport of lacrosse is growing tremendously in Northern California,” MLL Commissioner David Gross said, “and this is another opportunity for MLL to showcase the best players in the world in front of passionate lacrosse fans.”
Located on the grounds of the Cal Expo, Bonney Field opened in 2014 and seats approximately 11,500 fans for soccer matches. The natural grass surface has also hosted several international soccer and rugby matches, including USA Rugby.
