Major League Lacrosse, the Atlanta Sports Council and Kennesaw State University have announced Fifth Third Bank Stadium in Kennesaw, Georgia, as the host of the 2014 MLL Championship Game on August 23, 2014.

“We are thrilled to return to Fifth Third Bank Stadium and the Atlanta region,” said MLL Commissioner David Gross. “We believe in the growth of the sport in the area and having the championship game there is the next step as we contemplate future expansion.”

Last season, Fifth Third Bank Stadium hosted more than 4,000 attendees who watched the Rochester Rattlers take on the Boston Cannons in an MLL game.

“What a great compliment it is for Major League Lacrosse to think that highly of our facility, staff and community to want to host the championship game in Kennesaw,” said Vaughn Williams, KSU athletic director. “We are excited and honored to be a part of the MLL season finale.”

The 2014 MLL Championship Game in the Atlanta region is a joint effort of MLL, the Atlanta Sports Council, which is a division of the Metro Atlanta Chamber, the Cobb Sports Alliance and the local business community.
