The two-time defending United Football League (UFL) champion Las Vegas Locomotives (Locos) continue to reach out to the Las Vegas community by offering local nonprofit groups a fundraising opportunity with home game tickets during the 2011 season.
All nonprofit organizations can now buy $20, $15 or $10 home game tickets at half price, plus a $1 facility fee, and the groups can then resell the tickets at face value to raise proceeds for their organizations. To purchase tickets, nonprofit members can call 702.877.LOCO.
The Locos will play three home games at Sam Boyd Stadium during the 2011 season. The home opener is against the Omaha Nighthawks on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 5 p.m. The Locos next home game will come on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. when they face the Sacramento Mountain Lions. Finally, they will close out the regular season on Thursday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. against the Virginia Destroyers.
Each home game will be a fun-filled experience both on and off the football field. A team-sponsored Fan Fest will be held before every home game where fans will have the opportunity to enjoy food and games and interact with the Locomotion dance team. During each game, there will be on-field activities before kickoff and during halftime where fans will have the chance to win great prizes. Additionally, each game will have a designated theme to enhance the fan experience from the opening kickoff to the final whistle. Coaches and players will be available after all home games for autographs and pictures.
