The New York Titans are a professional lacrosse team based in New York, New York, that plays in the National Lacrosse League (NLL). The 2007 season was the Titans inaugural season. The franchise was announced by the NLL on July 11, 2006,[1] and the name "Titans" was chosen in September 2006.[2]

The Titans suffered through a rough inaugural season. After two losses, they won their first game at home against their expansion cousins, the Chicago Shamrox, but then lost the next six straight games. They did finish strong, however, winning two of their last three games, but finished well out of the playoffs.
