Banditland will get its first look at the team since last season, when the Bandits won their fifth NLL Championship and first since 2008. The 2023-24 Bandettes will also be performing during the practice.
Once in their seats at approximately 9:40 a.m., fans will have the opportunity to watch “A Banner for Banditland,” the documentary that goes behind the scenes with NLL Finals MVP Dhane Smith and the Bandits as they reflect on their 2023 NLL championship run.
Coach John Tavares, general manager Steve Dietrich, and senior director of lacrosse operations Scott Loffler will take part in a town hall-style speaking engagement following practice in Sections 104 and 105. Fans will have the chance to ask questions before enjoying a team autograph session and photo op with the NLL Championship trophy at 12 p.m.
Please note there will be limited concessions open for the event, along with the Sabres Store.
Buffalo’s home opener and Banner Raising Night is set for Dec. 16 against San Diego. Single-game tickets for the 2023-24 season are on sale now.
