Las Vegas: Your Ultimate Sports Destination

Whether it’s on the ice rink, at the speedway, on the court – and soon, on the gridiron – Las Vegas has plenty of exhilarating live action that’s the perfect complement to every sports fan’s Las Vegas adventure.

The Entertainment Capital of the World has also become a sports mecca, with new professional franchises taking their leagues by storm. The Vegas Golden Knights made professional hockey history by reaching the Stanley Cup Finals in its inaugural season, and the team renews its pursuit of the Cup beginning with preseason games in September.

Two other professional Las Vegas sports teams debuted in 2018. The WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces has entertained fans all season long at Mandalay Bay Events Center, and Cashman Center has been home to exhilarating United Soccer League matches featuring the Las Vegas Lights FC.

And soon, a professional franchise with a long and storied history will call Las Vegas home, when the Raiders begin play in its new stadium in 2020. It’s the next step in the continuing evolution of Las Vegas as a premier sports destination for your clients!

You can book Las Vegas for sports fans all year long, whether it’s for a night at the ballpark to see the Las Vegas 51s, Triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets, or to satisfy their need for speed at either of the two NASCAR Weekend events at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

And no place hosts more championship boxing and UFC events than Las Vegas.

You can also book your clients to attend the many sports showcases held in Las Vegas annually, including the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, the Professional Bull Riders World Finals, the NBA Summer League, USA Sevens Rugby, Big League Weekend, and more.

When it comes to live sports, Las Vegas is always the center of the action!
