Announced today (July 12, 2017), Las Vegas Soccer LLC is on the City Council Meeting agenda for Wednesday, July 19 to bring a professional soccer team to Las Vegas. Next week, the Las Vegas City Council will vote to approve a stadium lease agreement for a United Soccer League (USL) expansion team to begin play during the 2018 season at Cashman Field.
“We are excited to work with the Mayor’s office and Councilman Barlow to bring the world’s game to Downtown Las Vegas,” said Brett Lashbrook, Founder and Owner of Las Vegas Soccer LLC. “Las Vegas is the second largest U.S. market without a professional soccer team and it’s long overdue. Our goal is to have this club truly reflect the multiculturalism of our community.”
The City Council Meeting will take place at City Hall on Wednesday, July 19 at 9 a.m. The public can view the meeting live on KCLV Cable Channel 2 or on Livestream here.
Beginning today, fans have the opportunity to visit VegasProSoccer.com and submit team name ideas for the valley’s soccer team until Monday, July 31 at 11:59 p.m. In addition, one lucky submitter will be randomly chosen to win Season Tickets for the 2018 season.
“Our fans will help us shape the vision for our franchise. We’re asking fans to go to VegasProSoccer.com to send us suggestions for the team name – ones that will symbolize the pride of our hometown of Las Vegas,” said Lashbrook.
In addition, fans can now put down a $20 deposit (per seat) for season tickets at VegasProSoccer.com to ensure they enjoy every game during the upcoming season. Seat selection is available on a first-come first-served basis.
