DENVER (CBS4) – Lacrosse obviously isn’t the most popular sport in Denver, but fans came out in droves on the Fourth of July to watch the Denver Outlaws take on the Boston Cannons and broke the Major League Lacrosse attendance record.
The Outlaws’ Mile High Fourth of July game historically attracts a lot of fans who like to enjoy the game and get treated to a fireworks show. But this year 31,644 attended the 10th annual Mile High Fourth of July game, more than 600 better that the previous high of 31,019.
“We are thrilled to have broken the MLL attendance record,” Outlaws Director of Sales and Marketing Ted Tseng said in a statement. “The Mile High Fourth of July has become a tradition in Denver, and we are happy to present our fans with a great matchup on the field between Denver and Boston, followed up with a tremendous fireworks show accompanied by our in-house visuals, to be projected on our state-of-the-art ThunderVision screen.”
The Cannons won the game 22-9.
