After five seasons in San Jose, the Stealth announced shortly after the 2009 season ended that they would be relocating to Everett, Washington, approximately 30 miles north of Seattle. The Washington Stealth [1] will play at the Comcast Arena.[2] In addition it was announced on May 4, 2009 that after four seasons in Portland, the Lumberjax would no longer operate in that city[3] and on July 7, 2009 the NLL held a dispersal draft for the Lumberjax players.[4]

On August 10, 2009 it was announced that after three seasons in New York, the Titans franchise will be relocating to Orlando, Florida, where they will become the Orlando Titans. The franchise will play its home games at Amway Arena.[5][6]
