Real Women Shoot Hoops
Last year the Las Vegas Aces reached the WNBA Finals and on May 15, 2021 they began their quest for the franchise’s first championship. This year, the Aces play a 32-game schedule with 16 home games at Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay. The Aces host the Indiana Fever on May 28 and 30, the New York Liberty on June 15 and 17 and the Washington Mystics on Aug. 15 and 17.

Bright Lights on the Soccer Field
The Las Vegas Lights FC begin their fourth United Soccer League season May 5, and first home game at Cashman Field on June 5, with a new player-affiliation agreement with the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC), one of the top teams in Major League Soccer. That means Las Vegas’ lineup could feature players who have previously suited up for the big club. One of the best value gameday experience in professional sports, tickets start at $10. Plus look for the return of the Lights’ most infamous promotion – the helicopter cash-drop, during which $5,000 in small bills gets dropped to the ground during halftime of a game.
