LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Las Vegas Lights FC soccer team kicks off their second season on March 9 against Austin Bold FC.

“I am putting my money where my mouth is. That’s how confident I am that season two is going to be great,” said Lights FC owner and CEO Brett Lashbrook.

If Las Vegas doesn’t defeat Austin Bold FC in the USL season opener, all fans in attendance will receive a free ticket to the team's next home match.

When asked if he felt added pressure for the opening day match, defender Javan Torre said, "I don't feel pressure, we have the talent. We are professional and prepared, the result will be a by-product of that."

Season 2 brings with it a new coach, new team and new confidence.

The match gets underway on March 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Cashman Field.

Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased at the box office, online and at every La Bonita Supermarket in Las Vegas.
