The 2017 NLL World Champion Georgia Swarm is proud to welcome several new corporate partners for the 2018-19 NLL season. In total, the Swarm has over 30 organizations in its ever-expanding group of strategic partners.

“We’re incredibly fortunate to be able to welcome our new sponsors ahead of the 2018-19 season,” Swarm Co-Owner and President Andy Arlotta said. “Bringing in reputable names like Georgia Power, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Georgia Lottery, Corona Premier and Modelo Especial demonstrates the increasing value of our franchise. Our partners’ assistance helps us offer fans better gameday offerings and experiences while simultaneously growing the game of lacrosse at the local level.”

The Swarm also renewed its co-presenting sponsorship with Harrah’s Cherokee Casinos and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in April 2018.
