A team of Iroquois lacrosse players who have been blocked from traveling to a tournament in England because they refuse to use U.S. or Canadian passports has bowed out of the competition.
Manager Ansley Jemison says the team no longer has time to make the tournament, which ends next Saturday.
The 23 members of the Iroquois Nationals team already forfeited their first game of the World Lacrosse Championships. Their second game was scheduled for Saturday.
The United Kingdom has refused to recognize passports issued by the Iroquois confederacy.
Jemison says the squad is still trying to gain recognition for the passports so it can attend future international games.
