On 6th May 2019, less than six months after securing Provisional Recognition from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the international federation for men’s and women’s lacrosse is taking yet another significant step forward in its development with the introduction of a new name, logo and brand platform. Federation of International Lacrosse unveiled its new name, logo and brand platform at SportAccord 2019
The shape of the logo represents a handmade wooden lacrosse stick. The globe in the center, angled at the actual position of the earth at 23.5 degrees, represents the global appeal of lacrosse, but also hints at the uncharted territory and opportunity for continued growth. The colors depicted in the globe pay tribute to the importance of the Olympic Ideals and reflect the aspiration of World Lacrosse to one day secure inclusion for lacrosse in the Olympic Games — the pinnacle of athletic achievement.
