Bringing a National Lacrosse League team back to Philadelphia is a top priority for the league, commissioner Nick Sakiewicz said Thursday. Since the Wings moved to Connecticut in 2014, Philadelphia has been without an NLL team. "It was a legendary team, arguably should have never left here. They brought in great numbers," said Sakiewicz, a former CEO and operating partner of Major League Soccer's Union. "They had a lot of relevance in the city. " Sakiewicz was named the NLL's commissioner in January and is in his first offseason with the league.
