HistoryEdit

The franchise was announced as an expansion member of the North American Lacrosse League on July 26, 2012.[2] The Kingfish would be one of two expansion teams for the 2013 season, the other was the Baltimore Bombers[3]

The Kingfish originally announced they would play their 2013 home schedule at the Bradford R. Boss Arena, but on January 4, 2013 the Kingfish released a statement saying, in part, "Due to an unforeseen logistical situation, the Rhode Island Kingfish will be opening the 2013 season on the road." The rest of the NALL team also updated their schedules, with none of the teams schedules having an away game in Rhode Island.[4][5]
