Where there is a host of sporting opportunities.
Ice, ice baby
Ice Hockey: The Vegas Golden Knights only got to the Stanley Cup final, North America’s prime competition, in their inaugural season.
The Golden Knights play in the T Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, near Vegas.
American Football: It is not uncommon for American sports to up sticks and move town.
And Oakland, California’s loss is Las Vegas’s gain with the Las Vegas Raiders kicking off the 2020-2021 season at the Allegiant Stadium, also in Paradise.
Also throw in the Las Vegas Aces of the WNBA who play their games at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
Minor League baseball and second-tier soccer, golf, the USA Sevens tournament, the biggest in North America, and speedway.
