The term “Only in Las Vegas” can be applied to several things Las Vegas Lights Football Club has done so far in its brief existence. Why would the club’s official mascot – and his unveiling – be any different? (Photo credit: L.E. Baskow / Lights FC)
In announcing a partnership Friday afternoon with Southern Nevada Harley-Davidson Dealers, “Cash the Soccer Rocker” was introduced on the sales floor at Red Rock Harley-Davidson – with a motorized entrance conducted by Lights FC Technical Director Chelís, of course.
“As you well know by now, our club loves paying tribute to the city we call home at every turn, and Cash does just that, adding another touch of Las Vegas flavor to our match day experience at Cashman Field,” Lights FC Owner & CEO Brett Lashbrook said. “On his first day in the public eye, Cash is already by far the most unique mascot in professional soccer, and we can’t wait for our fans to interact with him at every home match and at community events for years to come.”
“We love Las Vegas, we love Cashman Field and we love embracing all that it represents,” said Lights FC Owner & CEO Brett Lashbrook. “Naming the mascot ‘Cash’ after the Cashman Family is the perfect tribute to what they’ve done for the community over the generations and what they’ve done for our new home.
“We can’t wait for Cash to enter Cashman Field with his cape flying on a Harley-Davidson in front of capacity crowds throughout the season.”
Cash will make an even grander entrance in front of Lights FC fans at Cashman Fieldon Saturday night, as the club hosts its first United Soccer League (USL) regular season match, with in-state rival Reno 1868 FC coming to town for the first leg of the newly-minted Silver State Cup series.
Tickets for Saturday’s match, which kicks off at 8 p.m. in Downtown Las Vegas, are available and start at just $15 at LightsFC.com/SingleTix.
