Jones Lang LaSalle Presenting Sponsor for MLL Cannons-Outlaws Game


BOSTON, July 18, 2012 — The Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse and Jones Lang LaSalle are partnering as part of Young Professionals Day when the Cannons face the Denver Outlaws at Harvard Stadium on Thursday, July 19.

“We are looking to broaden our fan base and let people know that there are other options out there besides taking your company on a boat ride around the harbor or going out to a ball game,” said Cannons Director of Corporate Partnerships Jonathan Knochel. “We couldn’t have asked for a better partner to do this with than Jones Lang LaSalle. They are one of the premiere companies in the Boston area and will definitely draw some attention by having their names attached to this event.”

“The popularity of lacrosse has skyrocketed both as a team sport and as a breeding ground for great young real estate professionals,” said Jones Lang LaSalle Executive Managing Director David Slye. “We are proud to be teaming with the hard driving Boston Cannons, and be part of the excitement of our home team’s drive toward a repeat championship.”

The Cannons (6-4) will take on the Denver Outlaws (7-3) in a game with playoff implications. The Cannons are currently one game behind the Outlaws for second place.  In their 1st matchup the Cannons won 17-10 behind a six point effort from Cannons star Paul Rabil. The Cannons hope to repeat the outcome, and put themselves one step closer to clinching a spot in Championship Weekend with a chance at defending their MLL title.

The game will be televised by CBS Sports Network. Coverage begins at 7:00 pm.
