A professional sports outfit, the National Lacrosse League, has announced that it is relocating its corporate headquarters from New York City to Conshohocken, writes John George for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

According to George, the new operations center for the professional indoor lacrosse league will occupy a top floor suite at the Spring Mill Corporate Center at 1100 East Hector Street in Conshohocken. The league will continue to maintain a sales office in the Big Apple.

The NLL’s Commissioner is Nick Sakiewicz, who was previously CEO and operating partner of Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union. The Union and Sakiewicz parted ways last October.

“It’s no secret that Philadelphia has immense enthusiasm for professional athletics, and the City of Brotherly Love has not been shy to embrace the fast-growing game of lacrosse,” said Sakiewicz.

“In staking territory in Conshohocken, just a few miles away from downtown, we’ll have prime access to the city’s diehard fanatics, as well as connections to the top sports executives in the country. This region’s passion for competitive play will help take this league to its greatest heights, continuing to entertain and captivate audiences nationwide.”

Founded in 1986, the NLL has nine teams in the United States and Canada.

Philadelphia was home to the Philadelphia Wings for nearly three decades. The Wings, who won six championships while competing in the NLL and the Major Indoor Lacrosse League, moved to Connecticut in 2014.
