The Denver Outlaws and the Ohio Machine will be donning Star Wars themed jerseys on May 4, 2014 at the Outlaws home opener. The game coincides with "May the Fourth Be With You" day which celebrates Star Wars and its iconic "May the Force Be With You" quote. This will be the first Star Wars game in Major League Lacrosse history.
Denver will be representing the Rebel Alliance with orange X-Wing Pilot jerseys and Ohio will represent the Imperial Storm Troopers with their white jerseys. All of the jerseys will be signed and auctioned off after the game with all proceeds benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. The Outlaws collaborated with Lucas Films and Warrior on the design of the jerseys.
In addition to the jerseys, the Outlaws will be celebrating Star Wars during the entire game with character appearances and in-game promotions as well as music and video clips. The Outlaws are partnering with the local 501st Legion and the Rebel Alliance to provide the costumed Star Wars characters.
Tickets for this historic game start at just $12 and can be purchased here or at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High box office.
