BALTIMORE, Md. – Inside Lacrosse Magazine announced today that its partner Whitman’s® Candies has made a two-year commitment as title sponsor of two signature college lacrosse events, including the second annual Whitman’s® Sampler® Mile High Classic at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver on Saturday, March 16, 2013.
In 2012, a crowd of 12,282 gathered at Sports Authority Field at Mile High for the first ever Whitman’s® Sampler® Mile High Classic. The historic doubleheader (Duke vs. Denver and Virginia vs. Penn) helped cement Colorado’s reputation as the sport’s No. 1 emerging market. The second edition promises more excitement with a lineup featuring the reigning national champions and top contenders for the 2013 title.
In the first game of the event, Air Force will take on defending national champion Loyola Maryland in an ECAC contest at 4:00 p.m., followed by a match-up between Notre Dame and Denver.
“We’re excited to be a part of this great event here in Colorado,” said Air Force head coach Eric Seremet. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for our cadets to play on a big stage against such a great opponent in Loyola.”
Tickets for the event will go on sale Monday, Dec. 3, at noon (ET). All seating locations will be reserved for these events. Fans are urged to make their plans early to secure the best seats and to be part of the action.
