“The Golden Knights are giving Vegas an incredible, odds-beating story in their first year on the ice. With a roster built on everybody else's spare parts, this expansion team has the whole league playing catch-up.” – Raleigh, N.C. (AP)The heady praise from the usually restrained Associated Press came on the heels of a late-January game between the Vegas Golden Knights and the Carolina Hurricanes. The Knights took the lead early in the game, scoring two goals within 39 seconds and three goals in the first 13 minutes. Ultimately, the Knights trounced the Hurricanes 5-1 and elevated their season record to 31-11-4 to lead the NHL in their inaugural year — and their record has only gotten better since. Catch the Vegas Golden Knights in action during their debut season when you travel to the remaining games on their schedule on a Cirrus Aviation private jet.

Las Vegas is turning into a true sports town. The Vegas Golden Knights are enjoying a stellar debut season in the NHL, the Las Vegas Aces are preparing to debut as the latest WNBA franchise and a stadium is under construction to welcome the Raiders and bring the NFL to Sin City. But that’s not all. Las Vegas got something more last August, when the United Soccer League awarded an expansion franchise to Brett Lashbrook, the former chief operating officer of the Orlando City SC, who helped make pro soccer a rousing success in central Florida. He’s now the owner and general manager of the Las Vegas Lights FC and the team is ready to make their debut against Fresno FC on March 17 at Cashman Field. But first, the Lights will warm up to the regular season with three games against Major League Soccer clubs. You can see Las Vegas' eagerly anticipated soccer team light up the field by flying to Las Vegas via private jet.
