Major League Lacrosse (MLL) may soon be headed to Georgia with a new franchise.
Lacrosse participation has grown rapidly in Georgia. Just a decade ago almost no high school in Georgia fielded a lacrosse team. Today, more than 100 high school teams participate in competitive lacrosse.
According to the report MLL Commissioner David Gross sees Atlanta as an expansion market. Rumors have surfaced that the current Rochester team may move to Atlanta but the commissioner dispelled that suggestion.
"Right now, we're looking at when we go to Atlanta that Atlanta be an expansion team," Gross said.
