Featured Sporting Events
With the addition of the NFL, NHL, WNBA and USL as well as a second NASCAR Cup Series weekend in recent years, our city has burnished its already strong reputation as a top-tier sports destination and established a legitimate claim to the title of “Sports Capital of the World.”
In one of the most anticipated franchise relocations in recent years, the NFL’s silver and black now calls Allegiant Stadium, and the Silver State home. The 2020 move by the Las Vegas Raiders, one of pro football’s most storied teams, marks the long-awaited arrival of America’s most popular professional sport in Las Vegas.
The Vegas Golden Knights made their debut in the 2017-2018 NHL season, immediately captivating the sports world with a historic run to the Stanley Cup Finals that permanently established a hockey fan base in Southern Nevada. On game nights T-Mobile Arena, a.k.a. the Fortress, is one of the destination’s most rollicking spots.
Building on our legendary reputation as the world’s greatest fight city, Las Vegas has played host to over 100 Ultimate Fighting Championship main events – over four times more than any other city in the world.
The Las Vegas Aces relocated to the Strip from San Antonio before the 2018 season, and now call Mandalay Bay’s Michelob ULTRA Arena home. The Aces quickly became one of the most exciting teams in the league and thrilled fans with a run to the WNBA playoff finals in 2020.
