NBC Sports presents the PLL Championship Series Championship on Sunday, when Matt Rambo and Whipsnakes LC face off against Josh Byrne and Chaos LC at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC. The top-seeded Whipsnakes LC will look to capture their second straight Championship title, while seventh-seeded Chaos LC, who went winless in the tournament’s round-robin matchups, will aim to win their third straight game and knock off the reigning champions. A 30-minute Championship post-game show will immediately follow the matchup at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

Last night, Chaos LC defeated Archers LC 13-9 behind 18 saves from goalie Blaze Riorden and five points from Josh Byrne, including this highlight reel one-handed between the legs goal. In the other semi-final, Whipsnakes LC beat Redwoods LC 13-12 in an overtime thriller. Brad Smith registered six points, including five assists, and Jay Carlson scored four goals to lead the Whipsnakes’ offense.

The Championship is the culmination of a quarantined tournament that featured 20 games in 16 days all presented live across NBC Sports platforms. In last year’s inaugural season Championship, Whipsnakes LC defeated Redwoods LC in overtime on a Matt Rambo winning-goal for the 12-11 victory.

NBC Sports Gold will exclusively live stream the Championship commercial-free. NBC Sports Gold’s Premier Lacrosse League Pass is available now for a price of $19.99 here. In addition to the U.S., the pass is also available in 12 countries: Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the U.K. USD or EUR pricing is available.

NBC Sports’ Paul Burmeister (play-by-play) and Class of 2019 National Lacrosse Hall of Fame inductee Ryan Boyle (analyst) will call the Championship alongside sideline reporter Todd Harris onsite at Zions Bank Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.
