European Lacrosse History

In 1995 the federation held their very first Men’s European Lacrosse Championship in Prague

By 1995 the European Lacrosse Federation (ELF) was inaugurated. The countries that founded the original ELF were the Czech Republic, Scotland, England, Sweden, Germany and Wales. Today, there are 29 countries in Europe that have established or are in the process of developing a national lacrosse program. Many of these nations are also members of the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) which was established in 2008 through the merger of the previously separate men’s and women’s international lacrosse associations.Currently there are 62 countries with national lacrosse programs worldwide and that number is growing year by year.

In 1995, the year of ELF’s inception, the federation held their very first Men’s European Lacrosse Championship in Prague, Czech Republic. That first year England took home the gold and the Czech home team took home the silver. The second year of ELF’s existence marked the first ever Women’s European Lacrosse Championship in Düsseldorf, Germany. Again England and Czech Republic finished in first and second respectively. Up through 2001, the Championships were held annually. Since 2004 the men’s tournament has been held every four years, most recently in 2016. On the other side, the women have played in 2003, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2015, and the next event will occur this summer, July 2019 in Israel.
