“My career has been nothing but spectacular so to continue my coaching tenure with the very first professional volleyball team in Las Vegas is both an honor and a dream,” said Fran Flory, Las Vegas head coach and AVCA Hall of Fame inductee. “The potential and talent our team is seeing aligns perfectly with the history that Pro Volleyball Federation is making in Las Vegas and beyond.”
Vegas Pro Volleyball joins six other U.S teams for the inaugural season: Atlanta Vibe, Columbus Fury, Grand Rapids Rise, Omaha Supernovas, and San Diego Pro Volleyball. An 8th team, Dallas Pro Volleyball, has been announced as the League’s first expansion team for Season Two in 2025.

Matches will take place on 67 different dates between January and May 2024 as opponents will be competing every day of the week.
The Vegas roster will include Olympians, National Champions and All-Americans. To date, seven world-class professional players have been signed to a contract and will soon be introduced to the city of Las Vegas.
“Volleyball brings unity, teamwork, passion and pride so we’re excited to bring that sense of community to Las Vegas and add to its impressive lineup of professional sports teams,” said Ruben Herrera, President of Vegas Pro Volleyball. “We are honored to be a part of this historic movement sweeping our country and I am humbled to be a part of its inaugural season and stand alongside Coach Flory as we lead our team to success. So, mark your calendars because February 15 will be our home-opener and let’s make history by having a packed house.”
