November 13, 2013, By IN Staff Writer
Two of the best lacrosse teams in the world will meet this Sunday at 2:00 pm, November 17th- 2013 in the Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada. The Iroquois Nationals Indoor Lacrosse Team is featured in an exhibition match with Team Canada. Lacrosse enthusiasts know well that these two teams always put on a world-class performance whenever they meet for a game.
Événements Sportifs Rooths enterprise, a Canadian business composed of entrepreneurs and several former Canadian lacrosse alumni, is hosting this event in part to serve as a lacrosse fund raiser for Team Canada while also a financial contributor to the Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse organization for their participation.
For the Iroquois Nationals it is a preliminary event to highlight the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships (WILC) in 2015, hosted by the Haudenosaunee at the Onondaga Nation located near Syracuse, New York. The WILC 2015 in September 18-23, 2015, is the first time an Indigenous Nation will host an international sporting championship.
This Federation of International Lacrosse sanctioned indoor lacrosse game will meet several Iroquois National program objectives. First, this event provides a time to celebrate our future and past athletes with a pair of U-17 indigenous youth exhibition lacrosse games and an indigenous master’s lacrosse game scheduled prior to the 2:00pm main event start time on Sunday at the Bell Centre. Secondly, it supports the Iroquois Nationals officiating program launched in 2011, with two indigenous referees officiating in this Sunday’s game.

The event marks the first international lacrosse game hosted at the Bell Centre in the building’s 17-year history. Last December, the Toronto Rock defeated the Rochester Knighthawks in an NLL preseason game at Bell Centre by a score of 14-10 in front of a crowd of 7,269 fans highlighted by the performance of two Quebec natives who played alongside the pros after tryouts were held.
This game will feature a rematch of two of the best teams in the world in Team Canada, World Champions since 2003, and the Iroquois Nationals, finalists at the 2011 World Indoor Lacrosse Championship hosted in Prague, Czech Republic. The matchup will feature some of the best NLL players in the game today on both teams including Philadelphia Wings transition star Brodie Merrill.
“Team Canada looks forward showcasing the world’s greatest lacrosse players at Bell Centre in Montreal”, said Dean French, Chair of Team Canada Lacrosse.
For its part, Sterling Deer, Ambassador of Team Iroquois and founder of Sterling Lacrosse, added “For the Iroquois Nation, Lacrosse is more than a sport it is an important element of our culture that we have been proudly communicated to the rest of the world. Presenting a lacrosse game at the Bell Centre, one of the most prestigious sports building in the world, is undoubtedly a fantastic opportunity to show case our sport.”
For Pierre Filion, Director of the Quebec Lacrosse Federation, “This is an opportunity for the public to discover our sport. The federation is involved in the presentation of this event because we believe it will contribute positively to the growth of Lacrosse in Quebec and to the eventual return of a professional lacrosse franchise in Montreal.”
And Martin Routhier, promoter of the event added, ”It is an important step in the process to obtain a professional lacrosse franchise in Montreal. We believe Montreal is the right market to host a successful NLL team. Part of our plan is to establish a long-term grassroots program that includes events such as hosting an international yearly event in partnerships with local communities.”
