Las Vegas Lights FC has joined forces with one of the city's most iconic brands - Zappos - on a multi-platform, 3-year deal, as professional soccer becomes a Downtown Las Vegas staple in 2018.
When Las Vegas Lights FC takes the pitch for the first time at Cashman Field in February 2018, it will do so with one of Las Vegas’s most recognizable brands as its first presenting sponsor.
Zappos and Las Vegas Lights FC have joined forces in a 3-year deal for the online retailer to be the club’s jersey sponsor and exclusive e-commerce partner, bringing the company’s world-class customer service to Lights FC.
“Our club is proud to call Downtown Las Vegas our home, and there is no more emblematic partner for us than Zappos,” said Brett Lashbrook, team owner and CEO of Lights FC. “We have our sights set on breaking the traditional American sports model in many ways. We look forward to showing both Lights FC’s & Zappos’ commitment to providing a unique partnership that our fans can enjoy while continuing to help Downtown Las Vegas grow.”
“This partnership gives us at Zappos the opportunity to help our community grow for our residents as well as sports fans everywhere,” said Loren Becker, Zappos Experience and Community Manager.
The deal marks Zappos’ first foray into team sports sponsorship, and is groundbreaking in many ways. Zappos will not only be featured prominently on Lights FC’s official home and away uniforms, but Zappos assisted with the design of the soon-to-be-unveiled, distinctive kits. Zappos will also host fans at tailgate parties at home games throughout the season, and have broad presences in-stadium, at www.lightsfc.com, in the community and on every club marketing platform.
The Lights FC uniforms will feature Zappos branding on the chest, and once unveiled, jerseys will be available for sale at Zappos.com and at the Zappos Z Boutique on the company’s Downtown Las Vegas campus. Jerseys will also be available for sale at all Lights FC home games.
