In a news release put out this morning, the Buffalo Bandits announced they will be hosting the 2012 NLL All Star game. All the details can be found at Bandits.com.
Last year’s game was held at Turning Stone to a decent crowd, considering the venue. Holding it in Buffalo was probably an easy decision for the league. This is the best fan base in the NLL and the attendance numbers are always near the league’s best.
This is just another Terry Pegula bull’s eye. There hasn’t been much attention given to the Bandits since the ownership change – mainly because they are a model franchise. But it is good to see the Bandits getting some love too.
February 25 will be a fun day for lacrosse fans and it will certainly be a nice draw for the City of Buffalo as well.
