The World Indoor Lacrosse Championship is an international box lacrosse tournament that is held every four years and is sponsored by the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL). First held in 2003, the tournament was sponsored by the International Lacrosse Federation (ILF) until 2008, when the ILF became the FIL. Canada has won the tournament all four times it has been held and has not lost a single game. Canada has hosted the tournament twice, while the Czech Republic hosted in 2011 and the Onondaga Nation Arena just south of Syracuse, New York were the hosts in 2015.
