In a unique event, Las Vegas Lights FC will host a Midnight Match at Cashman Field on Saturday, July 11.
The match against Orange County SC will kick-off at 11pm with a special midnight celebration at halftime.
The original concept of “midnight” sporting events started with the former Las Vegas Wranglers professional hockey team which produced the wildly successful tradition locally years ago. Lights FC is re-starting the local tradition and bringing it for the first time ever to professional soccer.
“Lights FC is for Las Vegas, by Las Vegas, of Las Vegas,” said Lights FC Owner & C.E.O. Brett Lashbrook. “We live in such a unique community and so many locals have to work during our typical 7:30pm kick-off times so this is a perfect way to play a game at a time so that those individuals can now attend — and, well, for us to create a new kind of fun at our Saturday night soccer parties!”
In conjunction with this announcement, Lights FC also announced several unique aspects for the match….:
- Open Seating: The stadium will all be open general admission seating, including all pitch-side beer gardens & special seating areas. Season Ticket members will be allowed first entry into the stadium to ensure they can secure their seats.
- Halftime Midnight Celebration
- Food & Drink Specials: Several unique food & drink specials to be announced in the coming weeks.
“Be ready for pro soccer Vegas style!,” said Lashbrook. “If you’re overly traditional or don’t like staying up past your bedtime then this game probably isn’t for you — but if you’re one of the many thousands of individuals that work non-traditional hours in Las Vegas then this game is created specifically for you!”
