Las Vegas Lights

Las Vegas Lights FC made their debut as a club over the weekend and soccer fans in the entertainment capital of the world were pumped.

Ahead of their inaugural season in the United Soccer League (USL), the second-tier of North American soccer, Lights FC played against the Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer in a preseason friendly.

Over 10,000 fans packed out Cashman Field in Vegas for the game, which Montreal won 2-0 thanks to second half goals from Michael Salazar and an own goal.

Lights FC, managed by Mexican coach Chelis, are hoping to keep the hype around them going as they host the Vancouver Whitecaps from MLS on Feb. 17.
