STAMFORD, Conn. – May 12, 2021 – NBC Sports and Peacock announced today the media schedule for the 2021 Premier Lacrosse League season, featuring comprehensive coverage of 44 games this summer across NBC, NBCSN, and Peacock. Peacock will stream all 44 matchups, which sets an NBC Sports record for the most-ever professional lacrosse game coverage in a season.

The 2021 Premier Lacrosse League season will feature 21 of the games on NBC (4) and NBCSN (17), the most-ever professional lacrosse games on television in a season. All televised coverage will also stream on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.

2021 marks the first season that Peacock is the streaming home of the Premier Lacrosse League, featuring live, streaming coverage of every game throughout the season, including 23 games that will stream exclusively on Peacock.

“We are looking forward to presenting PLL’s world-class players and captivating style of play on Peacock, NBC and NBCSN,” said Pete Bevacqua, Chairman, NBC Sports. “For the third consecutive year, following a momentous offseason for the PLL that welcomed a merger with Major League Lacrosse and a new expansion team in Cannons LC, we’re excited to showcase this historic moment on NBC Sports.”

Opening weekend of the 2021 PLL season will take place June 4-6 with five matchups from Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. The season opener will feature the league debut of Cannons LC against Redwoods LC on Friday, June 4, at 7 p.m. ET exclusively on Peacock. The defending champion Whipsnakes LC will play Chaos LC in a rematch of last year’s Championship on Saturday, June 5, at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN and Peacock.

“Expect all 44 games this season to be played at a playoff pace,” said Paul Rabil, co-Founder and CMO, PLL. “Having added expansion teams in 2020 and 2021, coupled with an influx of new MLL players and the most talented class of seniors in the last decade, the rosters will no doubt live up to this historic slate of games on the NBC Sports family of networks.”

NBC and Peacock will present Whipsnakes LC facing off against Cannons LC on Saturday, June 12, at Noon ET from Fifth Third Bank Stadium in Kennesaw, Ga., in the first of four matchups on the broadcast network throughout the season.

All-Star weekend will take place on Sunday, July 18, from PayPal Park in San Jose, Calif. The league’s biggest stars will take center stage in the All-Star Game at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN and Peacock, followed by the Skills competition at 9:30 p.m. ET on Peacock.

The 2021 PLL season spans 11 weeks across the country, featuring seven regular-season weekends, an all-star weekend and three playoff weekends. The playoffs begin on Friday, Aug. 20, and culminate with the Championship on Sunday, Sept. 19.
