Lacrosse has its origins in the native American population back in the 5th century. Back then, up to 1,000 men participated in a single match with a filed as big as a couple of miles. Amazingly, these matches could last for three full days and were part of religious traditions that were intended to thank their Creator. The big spiritual involvement that this game demanded, made participants take the game very seriously as they approached it as if they were playing it not for themselves, but for their Creator himself. Back in 1637, a French missionary called Jean de Brebeuf became the first European who wrote a bout this game as he saw tribesmen play it. In his first documents he called used the word la crosse (or the stick) to refer to the game. Then, in 1856 a Canadian dentist called William George Beers funded the Montreal Lacrosse Club, a year later they began making modifications to the game and the number of players was reduced to 12.
Many years later, in 1987, the first professional lacrosse league was born under the name of the Eagle Pro Box Lacrosse League. This name was later changed to the National Lacrosse League that was made of clubs in 12 cities within the U.S and Canada. The league kept evolving, and by 2008 record attendance numbers were reached at 20,116 fans.
