Our little baby Las Vegas is growing up.
A year ago the best we had to offer for a sporting event was UNLV basketball and a AAA baseball Game.
Today we are proud to call ourselves Golden Knights fans and look forward to the Las Vegas Raiders playing their home games at a brand new, state of the art stadium off of Russell and I-15. I can only imagine that the NBA and Major League Baseball are paying close attention to what is happening in Las Vegas and it won’t be long until we are talking about having all four major North American sports here in our wonderful city. And, don’t forget soccer. With the insurgence of youth soccer in the valley over the past 20 years, I should think the MLS (Major League Soccer) is looking strongly at Las Vegas as an expansion location.
The days of the Las Vegas Thunder, Gamblers, Wranglers, Locomotives and Outlaws are in our rearview mirror.
We are playing with the big boys and girls now. The WNBA Las Vegas Aces will begin playing in Las Vegas this year.
What an exciting time to be a Las Vegan, and yes, that does include anyone living in Henderson, North Las Vegas and Boulder City.
So….Get your tickets, call an UBER and Enjoy The Game!
