UPDATE: Western Eagles had to drop out, but that brings us back to 12 teams, which is perfect for round robin pool play and awesome seeding! We are already talking to the Eagles about 2017, and we thank them for trying to pull a team together so quickly. Next year, you guys are IN!
Today we unveil our FINAL team announcement for the upcoming LASNAI and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome in our last (but certainly not least!) team:
The Western Eagles!
The team is a mix of Western New York guys, with a number of players from the Newton Golden Eagles. This is a different team than Newtown though, and it’s really exciting to see the WNY guys putting together a team just for this tournament! We always wanted a mix of established franchises and random groups of friends, but the Western Eagles are a great mix of the two, all in one team. We’re THRILLED to have them on board!
So now that we’ve announced our 13th and FINAL team, it’s time to start making game announcements!
Tomorrow (Thursday) at 3pm, on the LaxAllStars YouTube Channel, we will announce the game match ups. Each team will play two random preliminary games, which will be used for playoff seeding. Teams will know who they play tomorrow!
On Friday, we will announce the actual SCHEDULE, and when those specific preliminary games will be played. ALL of the games will be up on the LaxAllStars YouTube Channel as well, so subscribe today and don’t miss a thing!
