In only its second year of operation, the Premier Lacrosse League successfully pivoted to a bubble-style 2020 Championship Series. Leading with data and analytics, the PLL was one of the first pro sports leagues back to field and had zero positive COVID cases during their 2020 Championship Series. This presentation will take us inside the PLL as we learn about their data-driven season.
This panel aims to examine the fine line between when to make managerial decisions on gut feel, versus when to stick to the data. Did the 2020 World Series serve as a catalyst for changes to the game going forward, or will managers shrug off pressure from the media?

Bringing together the leading figures in sports analytics, business, and technology.
