Creating the PLL: Mike Rabil, CEO
This week, my colleagues and I – over 140 of the worlds best professional lacrosse players – joined by my co-founder and CEO, Mike Rabil, launched the Premier Lacrosse League. In short, the PLL is a revolutionary, tour-based, professional lacrosse league – where next June through September, 6 teams comprised of the best players and coaches in the world, will set off along a full regular season, all star break, and playoffs, to compete for a Premier Lacrosse League Championship. Major part of the news? We launched with a major media rights deal with NBC Sports Group – where all of our games will be broadcasted with NBC throughout the season, being featured on both TV and digital. Exciting times…and over the next several weeks on the show, we’ll be talking about it. Here’s my first conversation with the Premier Lacrosse League co-founder and CEO, Mike Rabil. Welcome to an all-new episode of Suiting Up Podcast – this is a show that explores the psychology, playbook of tools, and strategies of the most influential people in sports, entrepreneurship, and entertainment.
