Las Vegas Lights After Game Parties At The Plaza Hotel & Casino

3840--LVLFC-Logo-Box-550-x-247The Las Vegas Lights FC made their debut in the United Soccer League in 2018, bringing even more of a sports craze to the city of lights. They are the first professional soccer team in Las Vegas since 1979 when the Las Vegas Seagulls of the American Soccer League played so bringing soccer back to Las Vegas was a big deal for many soccer fans. The name for the team was decided from a poll which included other names Las Vegas Silver Club, Club Vegas, Viva Vegas, and Las Vegas Action. However, Las Vegas Lights was ultimately decided on as the name of the team. Plaza Hotel & Casino is a proud sponsor of the Las Vegas Lights. The Plaza logo can be found on the front of their match shorts. Zappos, a large internet retailer with deep downtown Las Vegas roots, also sponsors the team. The Lights play at Cashman Field, which is in downtown Las Vegas so it’s safe to say that the team has many ties to the downtown area. Most of the team’s players are from the United States or Mexico, but there are also team members from Canada, El Salvador, Japan and even some Las Vegas locals, bringing great diversity to the team.The team has taken over the hearts of many Las Vegas locals and people are finding new ways to celebrate and support the team. After each Las Vegas Lights home game in downtown Las Vegas, fans from everywhere can come over to the Post-Game Pitch, which is outside in front of The Plaza Hotel & Casino, next to the Porte-cochere, to celebrate the team. If you were at the game supporting the team in person, show your game ticket to the bar staff at The Omaha Lounge to receive a Las Vegas Lights specialty drink on us! You might even get to meet some of the players while you’re there as they’ve been known to come celebrate with their fans. Come share your passion for soccer and grab a cold one to celebrate the Las Vegas Lights!See Schedule

What is Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco De Mayo is traditionally a Mexican holiday that celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Pueblo in 1862. Cinco De Mayo is often mistaken to be Mexican Independence Day, but it is an entirely different holiday as Mexican independence was declared more than 50 years before the Battle of Puebla, which is what is celebrated on Cinco De Mayo.

Although the holiday is relatively small in Mexico, in the United States, Cinco De Mayo has become a celebration that incorporates Mexican culture, heritage, and tradition.

Additionally, the holiday celebrated in America often involves Cinco de Mayo parties which include eating traditional Mexican food such as tacos and drinking Mexican alcohol such as tequila or Mexican beer. The holiday is celebrated around the country with parades, parties, mariachi music, and festivals to celebrate the culture.

It’s a perfect time for people of all cultures to come together and celebrate all that the Mexican culture has to offer.
