The World Lacrosse Women's World Championship is the major international championship for women’s lacrosse and features the top female lacrosse players in the world, representing up to 30 countries. The quadrennial event dates to 1982 and the United States has won eight of the 10 World Cups held to date. Last summer, the U.S. defeated Canada 10-5 in Guilford, England to win the championship for the third straight time.
This will be the sixth world championship US Lacrosse has hosted since the organization was formed in 1998. US Lacrosse previously hosted the 1998 Men’s World Championship (Baltimore), 2003 Men’s and Women’s U19 World Championships (Towson, Md.), 2005 World Cup (Annapolis, Md.) and 2014 Men’s World Championship (Denver).
