Tickets for the Feb. 17th event go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
On Saturday, February 17, 2018, Patriot Cup, presented by GEICO, will return to Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas for its 10th annual tournament following a successful 2017 event.
The lacrosse tournament will feature a full day of games showcasing powerhouse collegiate Division I teams, Villanova vs. Yale. Also featured will be four of the nation’s top MCLA teams, SMU vs. Arkansas and Texas vs. Oklahoma.
“We are excited to welcome Patriot Cup, presented by GEICO, back to Ford Center at The Star,” said Dallas Cowboys Chief Operating Officer Stephen Jones. “The Star has created opportunities to showcase lacrosse at all levels and we are certainly proud to host the 10th annual Patriot Cup tournament. We are confident that this event will once again draw a great turnout of not just college lacrosse fans, but all of our passionate sports fans in the North Texas area.”
“As we mark the 10th Patriot Cup in 2018, there’s no better venue for this event than Ford Center. After a tremendous fan turnout last year, it’s clear Frisco appreciates and supports the ‘fastest game on two feet’, said Patriot Cup Co-chair, Tim Perkins. “The host committee is again proud to welcome two formidable NCAA Division I teams in Villanova and Yale to face off in this year’s event.”
Proceeds from the event will benefit HEADstrong Foundation, a charitable non-profit organization dedicated to research in finding a cure for blood cancer and to help families affected by the disease. “We are extremely excited for the opportunity to be a part of the 2018 Patriot Cup,” said Villanova Head Coach, Michael Corrado. “Having the chance to play a game against Yale in Texas will be awesome but more importantly getting to represent and honor the HEADstrong Foundation is something we are truly looking forward to being a part of.”
