The Boston Blazers of the National Lacrosse League announced yesterday that they were suspending operations for the 2012 season and will begin searching for a new home facility for 2013. The Blazers, who have played at TD Garden since beginning play in 2009, said they are looking locally and nationally for a new home.
This temporary suspension represents the first phase of a relocation process as we evaluate potential home venues for the 2013 NLL season and beyond, said team president and general manager Doug Reffue in a statement. As general manager, my goal is to win and build a Blazers team that competes for the NLL title every season. In order to reach this goal, we need an arena partner who shares our same vision and is strongly committed to growing professional indoor lacrosse in their market.
