The Halifax Thunderbirds will be a box lacrosse team in the National Lacrosse League. They will play at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

History[edit]

On September 13, 2018, the NLL approved a franchise relocation to the city of Halifax. The team will begin play in December 2019 with its home arena being the Scotiabank Centre.[1]

Curt Styres, owner of the NLL's Rochester Knighthawks, will move the Knighthawks' franchise for the 2019–2020 season. The Knighthawks intellectual property (name and logo) was sold to Pegula Sports and Entertainment, owners of the Buffalo Bandits, who will operate a new expansion franchise from the 2019–2020 season under the Knighthawks moniker.[2][3]
