The 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championship has secured Trusted Choice as their new presenting sponsor for the event to be held July 10-19 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, generic Colo.

“Trusted Choice is proud to sponsor the 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championship and welcome 38 nations to the largest lacrosse event in the history of the sport,” said Robert Rusbuldt, Trusted Choice president and Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) president & CEO. “From hundreds of little league baseball teams to the annual Trusted Choice Big ‘I’ National Championship junior golf tournament, to a PGA tour sponsor, Trusted Choice and the Big ‘I’ have a long history of supporting sports at all levels and this is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase this tradition on an international stage.”

Since the start of this international competition format in 1967, this is only the third time the United States has hosted the games and the first time it has been west of Baltimore. The United States is the reigning World Champion (2010 in Manchester, England) and has been historically dominant having won the gold medal in all but two championships since 1967. The championship takes place every four years and is being hosted and managed by US Lacrosse, the sport’s national governing body.

“We are pleased and fortunate to have Trusted Choice as the presenting sponsor of the 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championships,” said Bill Schoonmaker, vice president of strategy and business development for US Lacrosse. “Their commitment to quality and independence is a fantastic fit for our event and we look forward to working with them and their national network of independent agents.”
