The National Lacrosse League (NLL) is a men's professional indoor lacrosse league in North America. It currently has nine teams; three in Canada and six in the United States. Unlike other lacrosse leagues which play in the summer, the NLL plays its games in the winter and spring. Each year, the playoff teams battle for the Champion's Cup. Historically, the league has averaged about 10,000 fans per game.

Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
Forward the Light Brigade!”
