MSG Networks To Broadcast 2019 NLL Lizards Games

MSG Networks (NYSE: MSGN) and the New York Lizards of Major League Lacrosse (MLL), the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, today announced a schedule of 10 games this season that will be telecast on MSG Networks. The first Lizards telecast on MSG Networks will be next Saturday, June 29 at 7:30pm ET, when the team battles the Dallas Rattlers at James M. Shuart Stadium on the campus of Hofstra University.

Founded in 2001 as one of the league’s original six franchises, the Lizards are looking to capture their fourth Steinfeld Trophy, given annually to the winner of the MLL championship. The team is led by first-year Head Coach BJ O’Hara, one of the most successful coaches in MLL history, who has won four titles over his 17 seasons coaching in the league.

On the field, the team is headlined by 2018 MLL Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year Rob Pannell, who finished this past year with 78 points on 43 goals and 35 assists. Pannell is joined on the attack by 2017 MLL Rookie of the Year Dylan Molloy, who has scored 62 times in his two-year pro career. The Lizards also bring back Mark Matthews, who was named the Most Valuable Player of the National Lacrosse League in 2018, when he led the Saskatchewan Rush to the league title.

The Lizards are excited for the opportunity to partner with MSG Networks, the leader in New York tri-state area sports coverage,” said Jeffrey Rudnick, New York Lizard CEO. “Being in the media capital of the world, we could not ask for a better partner to work with for showcasing our games.”

Below is the complete broadcast schedule for the New York Lizards this season on MSG Networks. The team will play its home games at James M. Shuart Stadium on the campus of Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY.
