The defending Western Lacrosse Association champion Langley Thunder will kick off their 2023 season at home on May 24 when they host the Burnaby Lakers at Langley Events Centre.

"The hard work has begun in preparation for the 2023 season and our players and coaches can't wait to compete to host the Mann Cup in September," said WLA Commissioner Paul Dal Monte in a press release announcing the schedule.

The Thunder-Lakers is the first game of the entire WLA season.

Each team will play a total of 18 games, facing each opponent three times, and the regular season concludes on July 30.

All nine Thunder home games at Langley Events Centre will be held on Wednesday nights.
