In 2018, Las Vegas Lights FC exploded onto the sports scene with a uniquely “Las Vegas” approach to live sports and entertainment.

Named by Sports Illustrated as “the most interesting team in America” in April 2018, Lights FC won accolades for the neon-inspired name and logo (designed and selected by the fans), fashion-forward uniforms (in partnership with presenting sponsor Zappos.com), lovable live llama mascots, three live in-game DJ’s and an immersive sports betting experience. Lights FC compete in the United Soccer League and feature three-time World Cup veteran and U.S. soccer icon Eric Wynalda as its manager.
