This was exactly the tweet Knighthawks fans had been waiting to see.
Entering their final season as the current iteration of the Knighthawks, a season now appears imminent, when just days ago it was in serious jeopardy.
The National Lacrosse League and Professional Lacrosse Players Association announced Saturday that a deal had been reached on a new collective bargaining agreement.
The new CBA is for five years, and does in fact begin this upcoming season. The NLL had already been forced to cancel the first couple weeks of the season, and while no start date has been announced as of yet, there will be more information to follow in the days to come.
As of Saturday night, the Knighthawks website listed the season opener as December 29th, at 7:30 pm at the Blue Cross Arena, against the Philadelphia Wings.
