The Canadian Lacrosse Association has approved the bid by the Nanaimo Timbermen to host the 2018 Presidents’ Cup national senior B lacrosse championships. The announcement came seven weeks after the WCSLA selected the bid from the Harbour City. "We're extremely happy. It's really huge for Nanaimo lacrosse. It's been a stressful seven or eight weeks while we were waiting for the CLA to give approval but it all worked out," said Team Governor Shawn Swanson. WCSLA Commissioner Dave Parsons says the league will act in a support role for the Nanaimo organizing committee. "It's good for the league, and it's good for Nanaimo. Shawn and the committee will do a good job - he's been around the game for many years," said Parsons. All games will be played at Frank Crane Arena.
