Las Vegas the Neon Oasis in the desert is rapidly becoming a Major Sports City.
Of course, Las Vegas has been linked to sports for decades, largely as a venue for heavyweight boxing championship matches, star-spangled events that attracted thousands. And, as the epicenter of American sports gambling, the city pulls in thousands even for big events scheduled elsewhere, as evidenced by swarms of gamblers, and professional partyers who show up for Super Bowl and March Madness weekends.
But Las Vegas’ future as a sports capital, changed dramatically with the arrival of the Vegas Golden Knights of the National Hockey League.
The expansion team, the first Vegas-based team of the “Big Four” of the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball and the NHL, has succeeded beyond even the most ridiculous fantasies ownership and the league might have imagined.
Las Vegas Sports teams include The Golden Knights, the Las Vegas Aviators, the Las Vegas Aces of the WNBA and in 2020 the Las Vegas Raiders of the NFL.
