The National Lacrosse League has announced that the Vancouver Ravens franchise will not be reinstated for the 2008 season. A proposed ownership group led by former NFL and NBA executive Bob Whitsitt, received conditional approval for reinstatement on June 19th. The group had 30 days in which to meet a series of terms and conditions set forth by the league's Board of Governors for reinstatement.

All of the conditions required by the league could not be met in time for the club to be reinstated. The conditions were to be satisfied by July 19 in order for the club to begin play for the 2008 season. Vancouver last played in the league during the 2004 season.

The 2008 NLL season will consist of fourteen member clubs. The expansion Boston franchise joins the other thirteen returning member clubs that will play in the upcoming season.
