LEC Ranked Third Among NLL Stadiums
Apr 23, 2014
Earlier this season the Langley Events Centre, home of the Vancouver Stealth, was given a 4 out of 5 rating by Stadium Journey Magazine and has now been ranked third among all NLL stadiums for overall experience. To date, Stadium Journey Magazine has reviewed 1,814 different venues in 39 countries.
With the Stealth’s move from Everett, Washington, to Vancouver, BC, Stadium Journey Magazine took the time to revise their rankings for 2014.
Below are the revised rankings for current NLL Stadiums:
- Xcel Energy Center - Home of the Minnesota Swarm
- First Niagara Center - Home of the Buffalo Bandits
- Langley Events Centre - Home of the Vancouver Stealth
- Air Canada Centre - Home of the Toronto Rock
- Wells Fargo Center - Home of the Philadelphia Wings
- Pepsi Center - Home of the Colorado Mammoth
- Scotiabank Saddledome - Home of the Calgary Roughnecks
- Rexall Place - Home of the Edmonton Rush
- Blue Cross Arena - Home of the Rochester Knighthawks
The stadium experience is evaluated by looking at food and beverages available at the facility, as well as the overall atmosphere, the neighbourhood, fans, access, return on investment and any extra features the stadium has to offer. The primary tiebreaker is crowd reviews, as submitted by Stadium Journey Magazine members.
It’s also important to note that no NLL stadium scored less than a 3.1 out of 5, with an average score of 3.8.
This Saturday will be the last chance for lacrosse fans to check out the Vancouver Stealth at the LEC for the 2014 season.
