“We’re excited to have dates set to kick off the 2021-22 season and commend the NLL, PLPA and our ownership group for their continued work in ensuring a safe and responsible return to play this December,” Mammoth General Manager Brad Self shared. “We can’t wait to be together with our fans again and our guys are ready to get the Loud House rockin'!”
“During what has been a very challenging year and uncertain times we are thrilled to finally announce that the NLL will return to play in December," said NLL Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz. "We want to thank everyone that has helped us navigate the last 12 months with tough decisions, learning new innovations and, most importantly still finding a way to grow."

"We are very excited to welcome the NLL’s 14th team, Panther City Lacrosse Club to the upcoming season and confident it will be another record setting year," said Sakiewicz.
