Lacrosse was introduced to Bocconi University by a few students who had played lacrosse before in England and Hong Kong. In 2011, the team won second place at its first appearance in Coppa Italia. The arrival of American player/coach Scott Offerman helped transform the previously strictly amateur team into a more rigorous athletic organization. A.S.D. Bocconi has a very international roster, with players from 5 countries other than Italy represented, the most in Italian lacrosse.
