Professional soccer has arrived in Southern Nevada! The Las Vegas Lights FC play United Soccer League (USL) games at Cashman Field in Las Vegas. A Lights FC game is not just a soccer match - it is a fun entertainment experience for the entire family!
Hundreds of SNSA families experienced the excitement first-hand at SNSA Family Night with the Lights at the March 31 match against the Swope Park Rangers, in which the Lights secured their first franchise home victory with a 2-1 win. Every Lights FC home game starts with the Zappos Tailgate Party at 5:30pm. Fans are greeted by Dolly and Dotty, the Zappos llamas (and ardent Lights FC fans!). Adults can enjoy the Get Lit beer garden, while the kids play soccer-themed games like soccer darts, soccer billiards, Lights FC plinko, soccer pong and human foosball. A variety of food trucks are on hand, and music is provided by DJ Ocho and a roving mariachi band. The players are available for a meet-and-greet, as well as LV Lights mascot Cash the Soccer Rocker for photo ops.
And then there is the game! The Lights FC play a fast, aggressive style of soccer, and the players' efforts are matched by the enthusiastic chants, flags and drums of the Electric Company in the Supporters Section. With a variety of food and merchandise vendors, there is something for everyone at a Lights FC game!
SNSA looks forward to our next SNSA Family Night with the Lights, and we encourage all of our members to check out a Lights FC game and support OUR professional soccer team!

Southern Nevada Soccer Association enthusiastically supports the UNLV men's and women's soccer programs, and the recently-established College of Southern Nevada men's and women's soccer programs We believe that collegiate soccer benefits the community, and provides opportunities for student-athletes in Southern Nevada to continue to pursue their academic and athletic goals without having to leave their home town. Over the years, SNSA has worked with UNLV to provide player training and coach education through camps and clinics, and participated in SNSA group events at UNLV men's and women's games; we look forward to continuing this relationship in the years ahead, and establishing a similar relationship with the CSN program.
