Lacrosse will be included at the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic Games!

Lacrosse has been included as one of the new sports at the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. The International Olympic Committee Assembly voted to approve lacrosse's inclusion in the Games this morning. This exciting news marks a milestone in the history of the sport in our country and worldwide.

Lacrosse, an exciting team sport that combines speed, skill and strategy, has experienced steady growth in Spain and numerous parts of the world in recent years. Its return to the Olympic Games (the last appearance was in 1948 as an exhibition sport) represents a recognition of its growing popularity and the dedication of players, coaches, volunteers, and fans to the sport. This milestone represents an exciting opportunity for lacrosse in Spain, as it will inspire new generations of athletes and promote our values: Learning, Closeness, Cooperation, Equality, Respect, Resilience and Sustainability.

The Spanish Lacrosse Association is proud to be part of this exciting story. We have worked tirelessly to foster the growth of lacrosse in Spain, prepare our players to compete on the Olympic stage, and promote the spirit of the game.

The inclusion of lacrosse in the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic Games is not only an accomplishment of the work that began in 2004, but also a testament to the passion and effort that everyone involved has invested in the sport. We are grateful for the opportunity to show the world the intensity and strategy of lacrosse on such a prestigious stage as the Olympic Games.

The global lacrosse community is united in its support and enthusiasm for the sport's return to the Olympic Games. The best lacrosse players in the world will compete for the sport’s highest honor.

As we move forward into this new era of lacrosse, the Spanish Lacrosse Association reaffirms its commitment to continue to foster the growth of the sport in Spain and to inspire future generations of players.

We are excited for what the future holds and look forward to sharing this exciting journey with the Spanish sport community. Let’s go for the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles!
