About

The New England Black Wolves were founded in 2014. Playing out of Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, the Black Wolves are partially owned by the Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut and Brad Brewster. The Black Wolves are part of the four-team East Division.

The Black Wolves franchise originally operated as the Philadelphia Wings – one of the original EPBLL franchises – from 1986-2014. The franchise retained all of its records from its Wings days.

As the Philadelphia Wings, the franchise won the NLL Championship six times (1989, 1990, 1994, 1995, 1998, 2001).

About the National Lacrosse League

Founded in 1986, the National Lacrosse League (NLL) is the longest-running and most successful professional lacrosse league, ranking third in average attendance for pro indoor sports behind only the NHL and NBA. The League is currently comprised of 14 franchises across the United States and Canada: Buffalo Bandits, Calgary Roughnecks, Colorado Mammoth, Fort Worth (to begin play in 2021-22), Georgia Swarm, Halifax Thunderbirds, New England Black Wolves, New York Riptide, Philadelphia Wings, Rochester Knighthawks, San Diego Seals, Saskatchewan Rush, Toronto Rock, and Vancouver Warriors.

According to recent research, the NLL fan is younger (average age 46) than almost every North American professional sports league. Almost sixty percent of its fans come from a non-lacrosse fan base, while the general lacrosse fan has become more engaged than at any point in the history of the league. Most importantly, NLL fans are extremely passionate and engaged, with 58% of NLL fans identifying their favorite NLL team as their favorite sports team. Focusing on a digital-first strategy, every NLL game is distributed on Turner’s B/R Live streaming service available on desktop, iOS, Android, and connected devices. The NLL Game of The Week broadcast is also available on Facebook and Twitter, and averages over 160,000 unique viewers per game this season.
