Company gets contract to market Las Vegas for Major League Soccer

Posted at 4:50 PM, Jan 04, 2017

There is a new push to bring Major League Soccer to Las Vegas.

The City Council has approved an $80,000 contract with Inner Circle Sports, which will market Las Vegas as an MLS site.

The city made a bid two years ago for an expansion team but eventually had to drop out after plans for a soccer stadium fell through.

Rumors circulated several weeks ago that David Beckham's soccer franchise could be interested in sharing a possible Raiders stadium in Las Vegas.

Beckham was at a Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee meeting last April while talks were underway to bring the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas.
