PLL TV Schedule + Streaming Guide

We can finally pencil some more information into our packed July calendars. It’s been barely over a week since the Premier Lacrosse League rosters were locked in for the Championship Series in Utah and now the PLL TV schedule has been sorted out with lacrosse securing a larger share of the national spotlight. Slipping into a few prime spaces previously reserved for the 2020 Olympics, the PLL was able to lock in three Championship Series showdowns and the Championship Game on NBC.

While it’s exciting to see lacrosse on one of the world’s largest networks for four games, to be able to catch all 20 games fans must subscribe to NBC Sports Gold through the season. Six of the matchups are exclusively on the online platform, contrasting the massive net cast by the NBC games to attract new fans. That said, a pass only runs at $20, so if you can’t pay a dollar per game to watch lacrosse then get out of here, poser!

There is one awesome detail of the NBC Sports Gold relationship that is undoubtedly growing the game. The rest of the world can finally tune in to the action instead of clinging to social media for updates of all the cool things we do in North America. The international lacrosse community has a burning passion for the game, yet too often they aren’t granted access to the same streams, broadcasts and other distribution methods we are accustom to. As of right now, the pass is accessible in Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K. The world kept asking for more lacrosse to watch and the PLL answered.

Now, somewhere in the middle of the four games on NBC and the six on NBC Sports Gold are the 10 contests scheduled for NBCSN. NBC’s dedicated sports network played home to a little under half of last summer’s inaugural campaign and it was a great fit for the league. Although NBCSN is only offered through cable, according to NBC, a of September 2018, NBCSN is available to approximately 83.3 million households (90.2% of households with cable) in the United States. If you have more than the bare-bones cable package, it’s almost a guarantee you have NBCSN.

Games start on Saturday, July 25th and squeeze seven games into a four day block. We will observe July 29th as the lacrosse sabbath, the first of five total days in the 16-day tournament that the event will take a break, before taking on another four day stretch. The second break leads into the Playoff rounds with another pause before the Semifinals. Although we should all be used to a lacrosse-less life by now, the two days of rest before the Championship Game might be the longest 48 hours of the summer.

The biggest bummer is the coronavirus keeping all of us from taking over every bar and restaurant on the planet. What could possibly keep them from turning lacrosse on the T.V.? Everyone has NBC!
