Las Vegas Lights FC schedules 3 exhibitions vs. MLS sides
Las Vegas Lights FC has yet to play a match, but is already causing a stir with some marquee preseason exhibitions lined up for spring 2018. Well, more like the end of winter 2018, but this is the desert we’re talking about, after all.
The Sin City-based USL club will host three MLS sides on consecutive Saturdays in February, the team announced Monday. The Montreal Impact will visit on Feb. 10, followed by the Vancouver Whitecaps on Feb. 17 and D.C. United on Feb. 24.

LV Lights FC also recently announced its first-ever head coach in Jose Luis Sanchez Sola. The veteran Mexican manager, nicknamed “Chelis,” previously coached several Liga MX teams as well as former MLS club Chivas USA. Most recently he was with Venados F.C. Yucatan in Mexico’s second division.
Season tickets for the LV Lights’ inaugural campaign start as low as $200 and include a free jersey thanks to an extended Cyber Monday sale.
