Premier Lacrosse League announces names, logos for its 6 teams


Premier Lacrosse League announced names and logos Tuesday of the six teams that will launch the league’s inaugural season in June.

The Archers, Atlas, Chaos, Chrome, Redwoods and Whipsnakes gives the league team names that focused on topography and mythology, rather than nomenclature that focuses on a particular city or region.

League co-founder Paul Rabil detailed the meaning behind each of the teams (read more here), including some of the legal hurdles PLL had to clear first.

Premier Lacrosse League — which has an exclusive media agreement with NBC Sports — starts its season on June 1 and will feature a 14-week, 12-city season, culminating in a Sept. 21 championship.
