Utah Named New Home To Premier Lacrosse League Team

Nov 14, 2023, 10:56 PM | Updated: Nov 15, 2023, 11:58 am

SALT LAKE CITY – The Premier Lacrosse League announced the new home cities for its eight teams and Utah was named the home of the reigning champion Archers.

The PLL, founded in 2018, officially announced the homes for its eight teams on Tuesday.

In a hype-up video on the PLL website, the Archers were given a warm welcome to the state of Utah.

“With every buzzer-beater. Every happenstance hero. Every Archer aiming down from the mountaintop. Denver has a new rival. The people of the mountains have a pro team. The champs are here.”

The Archers come off of an 8-2 season in 2023. They went on to win the 2023 PLL championship after defeating the Waterdogs, 15-14.

The other seven PLL teams will move to Boston, California, Carolina, Denver, Maryland, New York, and Philadelphia.

The Archers are one of the six original teams who were around for the inaugural season in 2019.

Archer’s midfielder Tom Schreiber was named the 2023 season’s Most Valuable Player.

The Archers made some changes to their logos with the move.

They changed the arrowhead to resemble a mountain, added Utah to all of the logos, and added the state silhouette to the “A” in Utah.
