The Ohio Machine[1] is a Major League Lacrosse (MLL) professional men's field lacrosse franchise that began play in the 2012 MLL season along with the Charlotte Hounds as part of the league's plan to have 16 teams by 2020.[2] The team's offices are based in Columbus, Ohio and the team plays its home games in Delaware, Ohio.[3]

Franchise history

In January 2011 MLL voted to grant expansion franchise to Columbus and Charlotte, North Carolina for the 2012 MLL Season.[2][4] The league announced on April 12, 2011, the team name will be the Ohio Machine, continuing the team previously located in Chicago. The Chicago Machine played the 2010 season as a traveling team playing their home games at neutral sites where the MLL did not have franchises. The Chicago Machine franchise that existed from 2006 to 2010 was moved to Rochester, New York and was re-branded as a continuation of the Rochester Rattlers franchise that moved to Toronto, Ontario in 2009. This franchise brought back the light blue and black colors of the Chicago franchise.[5] On May 19, 2012 the Ohio Machine got their first win and first home win in their franchise history against the Rochester Rattlers.

On June 24, 2013, two days after a 19-5 loss to the Denver Outlaws, Ted Garber was fired as head coach and replaced by Bear Davis. Garber had led the expansion franchise to a 3-19 record through its first 22 games and a 1-7 record in 2013.[6]
