The National Lacrosse League has issued a statement that the league is cancelling the first two weeks of the 2018-2019 season due to a labor dispute. 

The NLL is in a labor dispute with the Professional Lacrosse Players Association for a new collective bargaining agreement, but a counter offer made by the PLPA was rejected by the league, creating an impasse. 

The NLL released a statement in a press release announcing the delay to the start of the season. 

The Buffalo Bandits and Rochester Knighthawks are owned by Terry and Kim Pegula, owners of the Buffalo Bills of the NFL, Buffalo Sabres of the NHL and Buffalo Beauts of the NWHL.
