2026 FIFA World Cup Bumps NCAA Lacrosse Championships from Gillette Stadium

The NCAA is looking for a new home for the 2026 Division I men’s and women’s lacrosse championships.

The Division I semifinals and championship games and the Division II and III men’s championship games were supposed to take place at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. But the venue has been selected as one of the sites for the 2026 FIFA World Cup and is no longer available.

The Division I men’s and women’s lacrosse committees are each exploring site options for their respective championships in 2026. The Division II and III men’s championships will be held at the same site as the Division I men’s final four.

The NCAA originally announced sites for the 2023-26 lacrosse championships in 2020. The men were in Philadelphia and the women in Cary, N.C., this year and will return to those cities in 2024. They’ll converge in Foxborough in 2025, the first time since 2017 that the Division I men’s and women’s lacrosse final four events will take place at the same site.
