Salute to Service & Hospitality Workers Presented by De Castroverde Law:
Las Vegas is the greatest city to visit, live, work and play - and it's due to our amazing hospitality & service workers. And to thank them, De Castroverde Law Group has partnered with Lights FC to show its appreciation to all these local workers (and their families). Every type of hospitality & service workers are eligible to receive the free tickets -- e.g., casinos, restaurants, transportation, etc. And each of their family members (who we know often are home on weekend nights while their loved ones work across the City).
Visit LightsFC.com/DeCastroverde and submit your request for free General Admission ticket(s) to any home match in October. The first 1,000 submissions will be granted. For clarity, all immediate family members of hospitality & service workers are also eligible to participate.

In cooperation with the Las Vegas Cornhole organization, Lights FC is hosting a first of its kind cornhole tournament during Saturday afternoon's home match. The competition will feature teams of two (2) people each in tournament style format. All matches will occur along the sidelines of the grass field at Cashman Field. The tournament will begin during pre-game warm-ups of the Lights FC match and will continue throughout the Lights FC match.
