WORCESTER – Although they came out on top with a win in the first game of their inaugural season, the Massachusetts Pirates were levied hefty fines for multiple offenses following Week 1 of the National Arena League [NAL] season.

According to the NAL, the Pirates were fined a total of $25,000 for five offenses — including Illegal Player Compensation ($14,700), Failure to Provide Live YouTube Feed ($10,000), Failure to Provide VidSwap Upload in timely Manner ($200.00), and two uniform violations of $50 each.

Attempts to reach the NAL for clarification on these fines weren’t immediately returned.

According to the Pirates website, their week 1 home victory over the Maine Mammoths drew a crowd of more than 6,000 fans at the DCU Center.
