Las Vegas Locomotives Prepare for Home Opener With Great Game Day Promotions
Fireworks and Free Rally Towels on Tap for First Locos Home Game
The Las Vegas Locomotives (Locos) are ready to give fans a great home opener at Sam Boyd Stadium as they take on the Omaha Nighthawks Saturday, Oct. 8 at 5 p.m.
Fans can look forward to a night full of great football and fun promotions before, during and after the game as they see the team in action for the first time during the 2011 United Football League (UFL) season.
Festivities will begin prior to kickoff with the unveiling of the 2010 UFL Championship banner. The first 2,000 fans to arrive at Sam Boyd Stadium will receive free Locos rally towels. Pregame fun will also include a Fan Fest starting at 3 p.m. with “Tailgating Olympics,” interactive football drills, bounce houses for the kids and inflatable obstacle courses. The coin toss will be performed by a lucky ESPN 1100/98.9 Radio listener.
Halftime entertainment will be provided by the Locomotion dance team along with any youth cheerleaders who attended the dance team’s Oct. 2 cheer camp. The Locomotion held several cheer and dance camps throughout the summer, and final rehearsals for the halftime performance took place during the Oct. 2 camp.
Following the game Locos players, coaches and dance team members will be available on the field for autographs and pictures. Finally, a post game fireworks show will put the cap on a great night of football and fun!
The Locos return to Sam Boyd Stadium on Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. to face the Sacramento Mountain Lions and on Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. to take on the Virginia Destroyers. Fans can expect more spectacular entertainment before, during and after kickoff at these games. Promotions for the remaining home games will be announced in the weeks leading up to each game.
