New Jersey Pride

The New Jersey Pride were a men's field lacrosse team formerly based in Piscataway, New Jersey, United States. They played in Major League Lacrosse from 2001-2008.

Franchise history

In 2001, the first year of the league’s existence, the Pride played its games at Yogi Berra Stadium at Montclair State University. They played their home games at TD Bank Park in Bridgewater Township, New Jersey in 2002 and 2003. For 2004 and 2005, the Pride played its home games on Sprague Field, Montclair State University’s football stadium. The Pride made the league's playoffs in 2002 and 2003.

For the 2006 season, the Pride moved to the 5,000 seat stadium on the campus of Rutgers University which houses the Scarlet Knights’ soccer and lacrosse teams and is officially named "The Soccer/Lacrosse Stadium at Yurcak Field" in honor of Ronald N. Yurcak, a 1965 All-American Rutgers lacrosse player.

The team suspended operations after the 2008 season.
