2022 World Lacrosse Championship
The 2022 World Lacrosse Championship will be the 14th edition of the international men's field lacrosse tournament for national teams organized by World Lacrosse. The tournament was to be held in Coquitlam, British Columbia, but the organizing committee withdrew in October 2019.
The tournament will be limited to 30 teams for the first time through qualifying tournaments.
The Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) gave its member associations until the end of September 2016 to formally make its intent to bid known to the international sports body and March 2017 to submit their bid. The winning bid was announced in June 2018.
On June 25, 2018, FIL President Sue Redfern announced that Canada will host the 2022 World Lacrosse Championship in Coquitlam, British Columbia. According to the bidding team of the Canadian Lacrosse Association, it chose Coquitlam as the proposed host city for its bid citing the locality's previous hosting experience of the 2008 and 2016 men's U-19 world championships. On 18 October 2019, the organizing committee withdrew its bid to host the event in Coquitlam. Matches were to be held at the Percy Perry Stadium from July 14–23, 2022.
The maximum number of teams to participate in the 2022 World Lacrosse Championship is 30. Regional qualifiers shall be held to determine the participating teams. The top 6 nations from the 2018 edition have already qualified for the championship.
