The first regular season home match for Las Vegas Lights FC at Cashman Field will double as the birth of an in-state rivalry.

Lights FC will host Reno 1868 FC on Saturday, March 24, at 8 p.m. Single game tickets can now be purchased for the first installment of the all-Nevada showdown by visiting LightsFC.com/SingleTix, or by phone at 702.728.GOAL (4625).

“There is no other way to say it: This is exactly who we wanted to play for our inaugural USL home match,” Lights FC Owner & CEO Brett Lashbrook said. “Beat Reno.  Early and often.  Every time.  That will always be a core goal of our club.”

Before opening the regular season at home in late March, Lights FC will host a trio of visiting MLS clubs at Cashman Field on consecutive weekends as part of Soccer Spring Training. Those matches will feature Lights FC vs. Montreal Impact on Feb. 10, Lights FC vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Feb. 17 and Lights FC vs. D.C. United on Feb. 24.

The 2018 USL regular season schedule for Lights FC will begin on the road a week before the showdown with Reno 1868 FC, as the club travels to take on fellow expansion club Fresno FC on Saturday, March 17th. The full USL regular season schedule is expected to be announced soon.

Reno 1868 FC enters its second season in the United Soccer League (USL), having gone 17-7-8 in 2017, finishing 3rd in the Western Conference and earning a spot in the USL Cup Playoffs.

The Soccer Spring Training matches are included along with the entire home regular season slate in all 2018 season ticket packages, which start at just $200 and include a free Lights FC team jersey with each seat purchased ($80 value). Tickets for groups of 10 or more are also now on sale, starting at just $18 per ticket, with each ticket purchased including a free Lights FC scarf (valued at $20).
