LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Las Vegas Lights FC will be back on the field Saturday night.

Last weekend the team lost to San Diego, and their new head coach Frank Yallop admits the group was a little rusty because the preseason was canceled but says they will get better.

Saturday night is the team's first home game of the season. However, like most sports currently going on, there will be no fans in the crowd.

The team did ask for fans to send pictures for cardboard cutouts that will go in in the stands. So, the stadium won't be empty.

Saturday's game against Reno takes place at 7:30 p.m. and will air on ESPN+.
