2020 Lights FC Promotional Schedule Announced


If you thought the Lights FC were done with the wild and crazy promotions then think again, because Brett Lashbrook has done it again. “People know us for having fun promotions and this season will be no different,” said Lights FC Owner & C.E.O. Brett Lashbrook.

So we all know what happened last season with the cash drop and the problems they had with the FAA investigation, but thats all in the rear view now it seems, yet that did not stop Brett Lashbrook from once again adding that same promotion to the list for this upcoming season. Now if you were a fan of some of the promotions that were done last year, no need to worry a lot of the fan favorites are coming back.

World’s Largest Water Balloon Fight, Paws on the Pitch, Midnight Match. Yes, you read that correctly, a Midnight Soccer Match, well, it technically starts at 11PM, but it rolls into midnight. “I think Orange County which is the team that’s also a part of this is not too happy about it, probably because they’re coming from the central time zone and they are going to be all off.” Said Lights FC Head Coach Eric Wynalda when I asked him his thoughts about playing a midnight game.

Aside from the promotions, one thing is for sure head coach Eric Wynalda means business more than ever for this upcoming season, if you sit and chat with him even for a few moments you can see it in his eyes, telling you, “Just watch,” that look of hunger and wanting to accomplish what others have not yet done here in Las Vegas. And that is bring a USL championship to the city.

Now I know you’re still asking yourself, OK so what are the promotions, what’s going on give us the 411, well no need to worry. Below is the list of dates and promotions courtesy of the LV Lights FC.
