Want to watch lacrosse on TV? Then Tuesday will be your lucky day.
The Fivestar Championship Challenge takes place this weekend at Bland Air Park in Columbia, Maryland, featuring some of the best boys lacrosse players from the Class of 2023, and the championship game will re-air on TV on Next Level Sports (NXT) on Tuesday, Aug. 31 at 8 p.m. EST, with Quint Kessenich (play-by-play) and Dave Cottle (color commentary) on the call.
This will be the second Fivestar Elite Lacrosse event for the Class of 2023, but this time the competition is elevated even higher. In the Fivestar Championship Challenge, squads filled with high-level athletes from across the country will compete for more than just bragging rights – the winners will also receive the inaugural Fivestar Cup!
In addition to the championship game, a recruiting show hosted by Kessenich and Cottle will air on TV beforehand, also on NXT at 7 p.m. EST, highlighting the ins and outs of the Class of 2023 with some of the brightest minds in lacrosse.
There will be additional showings of the championship game and recruiting show in back-to-back hourlong timeslots on Wednesday, Sept. 1 from 1 a.m. to 3 a.m. EST and again later that day from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. EST.
The Fivestar Championship Challenge will feature tons of elite lacrosse players from the 2023 class you won’t want to miss on TV, from Caleb Fyock to McCabe Millon, Nate Kabiri, and many more. Some of the top coaching talent in the country will direct the teams in the tournament, including Don Zimmerman, John Desko, and Mark Millon, and Tom Ripley, the CEO of Lids, the presenting sponsor for the event, will also be there to celebrate the Class of 2023, as will loads of gear from the sports apparel brand.
The games will begin Saturday at 9 a.m. EST, then continue throughout the day with each team competing in four contests. The top four teams will advance to Sunday morning’s semifinals, while the bottom two will play one another in a consolation game. The semifinals winners will collide in the championship game Sunday at 10:30 a.m. EST.
