Serbia has finalized their master plans and has all but packed the bags for the WILC 2015!
Last week we took a deep look at Serbian lacrosse history and the team’s plans for the WILC, but now we can take a further look into the Serbian roster.
In less than a month, we will see a new group of faces, speckled with a few familiars, hit the floor in Syracuse, so let’s take a look through the names.

Although Serbia doesn’t have an extremely rich box lacrosse background, don’t count them out as the team heads into the event led by NLL all-stars Nik Bilic and Ilija & Aleks Gajic. Help is also coming from Ryan and Jordan Pavic, Stephen Simeunovic and goalie Marko Celic, all Canadian-based players with Serbian heritage.
For the most part, the others are pure-Serbian and most are making their way to North America for the first time. WILC 2015 is right around the corner, we’re excited to see the results!
