* Mt. Washington (Md.) Lacrosse Club represented the U.S. at the 1967 World Championship, which was formatted as a round-robin tournament.
The International Lacrosse Federation sanctioned World Championship events from 1974-2006. The ILF merged with the International Federation of Women’s Lacrosse Associates (IFWLA) to form the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL), unifying men’s and women’s international play under the scope of one organization. The first sanctioned FIL World Championship was in 2010.
Team USA reclaimed the gold at the 2010 FIL World Championship in Manchester, England, defeating Canada 12-10 in the gold medal game to claim its record ninth world title. The United States will host the next FIL World Championship on July 10-19, 2014, in Denver, Colo.
