The first-ever Bowhunter Cup, an international 'friendly' between Team USA and the Iroquois Nationals, will take place at the War Memorial at Oncenter in Syracuse, NY, on September 25, 2010.
The game is a warm-up for the 2011 World Indoor Lacrosse Championship, which will be held at Telsa Arena in Prague, Czech Republic on May 21-28, 2011. Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, England, Finland and Ireland will join the United States and Iroquois Nationals in the one-week tournament.
Team USA recently finished first at the World Field Lacrosse Championship, defeating Canada, 12-10, in the gold medal game. The Iroquois Nationals were unable to participate, as the British government refused to recognize the teams' Haudenosaunee passports or provide them with visas to travel to England.
The Iroquois Nationals are 2-0 all-time against the Americans in indoor competition, winning in pool play in 2003 and in the semifinals in 2007.
Faceoff is scheduled for 8:00 PM. The game will be streamed live on the NLL Network.
