I'm a big sports fan and love all the teams that we have in Binghamton, including the Binghamton Black Bears (hockey), the Binghamton Rumble Ponies (baseball) and the Binghamton Bulldogs (basketball). If you're looking for a football fix, we even have the Binghamton Stallions.

Now we have another new professional sports team coming to Binghamton and it involves one of the fastest-growing sports in the USA...Lacrosse. The Binghamton Bombers will be taking off as part of the Professional Box Lacrosse Association (PBLA).

Up in the sky, is that a bird? a plane? Nope, it's even better, beginning in December the Bombers will be flying to the Visions Veterans Memorial Arena. The Binghamton Bombers are ready to take flight and take the league by storm.

Professional Lacrosse Coming To Binghamton

They will be anchored by Jake Lazore, the first overall draft pick in the PBLA draft. Lazore was the USA bronze medalist goalie at the 2019 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships and he's officially a BOMBER!

The Binghamton Bombers officially begin their season at home against the Renegades on December 30th. What a great way to end the year and fly into 2023. You can see their entire schedule here.

Does their opponents think that they could really run and hide? WE DON'T THINK SO! By the time you hear them...It'll be too late. It's going to be bombastic so engage stealth mode as the Bombers will be taking off beginning in December.
