Colorado Mammoth plays in the Western division of the National Lacrosse League. The team won the Championship in 2006 and missed only one playoff since its inception in 2003. The Mammoth is owned by the well-known billionaire Stan Kroenke, who also controls multiple North American teams and the famous English soccer club Arsenal. Pepsi Center, its home-arena, is known to host major national and international events. In recent years, home games played at the Pepsi Center have led the league in the total number of spectators. More than a million individuals attended the games in 2006, which was also a record-setting season, as Colorado Mammoth claimed both the Division and the NLL championships. Despite sharing the Pepsi Center with other popular sports teams, such as Colorado Avalanche and the Denver Nuggets, the lacrosse team consistently attracts large numbers to its games.
