Charlotte, N.C. – The Crown Lacrosse Classic, the first independent four-team national NCAA DI lacrosse tournament, announced today a partnership with Powell Lacrosse and SteelFab, Inc. ahead of the three day event in March.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have SteelFab and Powell Lacrosse come on board as sponsors,” said The Crown Lacrosse Classic co-founder Chris Schiller. “To have the local support for this event by Don Sherrill and his organization is exactly what we need to continue to bring The Crown Lacrosse Classic back every year.
“Having Powell Lacrosse as the official lacrosse equipment provider for The Crown Lacrosse Classic brings in one of the biggest names in lacrosse ever. The Powell brothers have contributed so much to this game both on and off the field. We are proud to have them come to the Queen City to show them what our lacrosse community has to offer.”
As part of the partnership agreement, SteelFab and Powell Lacrosse will become two of the presenting sponsors of The Crown Lacrosse Classic. Since 1955, SteelFab has been a proud supporter of the Charlotte community while Powell Lacrosse has grown to become a premier provider of innovative lacrosse equipment.
“SteelFab has always been a community supporter in athletics and the Sherrill family loves lacrosse,” said SteelFab Vice Chairman Don Sherrill. “We think it’ll be a great event for the youth and families having these four Division I programs come to Charlotte.”
“The sponsorship of The Crown is great opportunity for Powell Lacrosse,” said co-founder Ryan Powell. “This event will bring passionate lacrosse enthusiasts to Charlotte for an exciting weekend of lacrosse and it will give our brand a chance to showcase our world class products. We are honored and excited to be the official stick and equipment sponsor of this marquee event.”
