Kelly Benefits will serve as title sponsor; broadcasts begin on March 30th with Boys’ Latin at Severn
Legendary Sports Group, event operator for the 2021 MIAA Lacrosse Championships, announced Monday the schedule for the 2021 MIAA Game of the Week, coupled with reveal of the title sponsor, Kelly Benefits. Through partnership with Kelly Benefits and FCA Lacrosse, Legendary Sports Group (LSG) will produce and broadcast a “Game of the Week” with three ways to watch. Fans, friends and family may tune in weekly to watch on WBAL/MeTV, live-streamed on MIAAchampionships.com, or broadcast on Lacrosse Sports Network.
The official Association website of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAAsports.net), explains the league as “an independent organization comprised of 29 private high schools located in and around the Baltimore Metro area. Founded in 1994, MIAA schools have a combined enrollment in excess of 17,000 students. The Association has a long history of athletic prowess. It boasts what is widely recognized as the best high school lacrosse league in the world, underscored by the immense impact of its former players, as both players and coaches, on nearly every level of collegiate and professional lacrosse.”
This will be LSG’s first season executing as event operator as last year’s season was canceled due to the pandemic.
“These athletes have missed many important opportunities to take the field in the past year,” shares LSG President, Dave Cottle. “Our goal in operating this years’ game of the week and championship event is to enhance the exposure for the players to help them with visibility after losing last season. Having the support of Kelly Benefits is instrumental in making this possible.”
“We are very excited that lacrosse will be played this spring and we are honored to be the title sponsor of the MIAA Game of the Week,” said Frank Kelly III, CEO of Kelly Benefits. “This will give lacrosse fans all over the state of Maryland, and around the country, the opportunity to see elite level high school lacrosse with top quality video production.”
The regular season broadcast schedule will feature all 11 MIAA A Conference squads.
