The Denver Outlaws are a Major League Lacrosse professional men's field lacrosse team based in Denver, Colorado. They began playing in the MLL in 2006 as an expansion team. Since 2006 they have been one of the most successful teams in the league, with the best attendance in the league and many championship appearances. From 2006 to 2008, they were in the Western Conference. With the MLL contraction in the 2009 season from 10 to 8 teams (due to the state of the U.S. economy), there is currently now only one conference.
The Outlaws had their inaugural game on May 20, 2006, versus the Chicago Machine at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The game was played in front of a Major League Lacrosse record crowd of 13,167 (the record was broken again later that year at another Denver home game which drew 15,981), where the Outlaws won 24-14. The Outlaws won the Western Conference championship in their first season.
On June 16, 2007, the Rochester Rattlers won a game in overtime 27–26 over the Outlaws in the highest scoring game in MLL history at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Denver hosted the 2008 Major League Lacrosse All-Star Game in front of 10,124 people, with the Western Conference defeating the Eastern Conference 31–15.
During the 2012 season, a total of 59,465 fans came out for Outlaws home games, an average of 8,495 fans per game.
Historically, the Outlaws have led the MLL in attendance since their inaugural season in 2006.
About the Outlaws
Part of Major League Lacrosse’s 2006 western expansion, the Denver Outlaws have posted winning records and reached the playoffs in each of the seven seasons that the team has been in existence. Theyare the only MLL team to accomplish such a feat, as the team’s 60-26 record is top in the league since 2006.
The team is managed by Edge Sports & Entertainment, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Denver Broncos Football Club.
In 2012, behind the strong veteran play of MLL MVP Brendan Mundorf and Defensive Player of the Year Lee Zink, Denver capped their regular season with a 15-13 victory over Chesapeake to finish the year with an 11-3 record, which represented the most wins in team history for a single season. Additionally, Denver entered the postseason as the No. 1 seed for the second time in franchise history and first time since 2009.
During Championship Weekend in Boston, the Outlaws trailed 12–3 to Long Island with 11:32 to play in the third quarter. It appeared as if Denver’s record-setting season had reached its end. Yet, that’s when Denver set another record with a 10–0 run to end the game, catapulting the franchise into the Steinfeld Cup title game with a 13–12 victory over Long Island. Unfortunately, in the title game versus Chesapeake, the Outlaws were unable to muster that same kind of comeback magic and fell to the Bayhawks 16–6, falling one win short of their first MLL Championship.
In 2013 the Denver Outlaws became the 1st undefeated team in the regular season in MLL history after beating the Hamilton Nationals 18-12.
Independence Day Games with Fireworks
On July 4, 2007, Denver set the world professional lacrosse attendance record (indoor and outdoor) when 19,793 people came to see the 4th of July fireworks game against Chicago. Denver won the game 22-14. This broke the previous record, set in Denver's 2006 Independence Day weekend game against the Los Angeles Riptide.
The Outlaws broke their own attendance record once again on July 4, 2008, as 20,116 people saw the Outlaws defeat the San Francisco Dragons 10–9.
The Outlaws broke their attendance record again on July 4, 2009, with 21,952 attendants. They lost the game 17–16 against the Boston Cannons.
The Outlaws broke their attendance record again on July 4, 2010, with 23,443 attendants. They won the game 12–10 against the Chesapeake Bayhawks.
The Outlaws broke their attendance record again on July 3, 2011, with 27,184 attendants. They lost the game 15–12 against the Boston Cannons.
The Outlaws broke their attendance record again on July 4, 2012, with 30,128 attendants. This also broke a professional outdoor lacrosse attendance record. The Outlaws celebrated Independence Day with a 17–12 victory over the Ohio Machine.
