With their mutual commitment to innovation and technology to drive new levels of performance, Switch and the UNLV Athletics Department have formed a dynamic, life-changing partnership that embodies both excellence and community impact.

With Switch’s underwriting, the Lied Athletic Complex will be home to state-of-the-art technology, highlighted by the Switch Sports Science Studio – a future hub of innovative, interdisciplinary collaboration to personify the power of a truly transformational partnership.

UNLV’s 515 student-athletes will be the principal beneficiaries, with support from Switch fueling facility upgrades essential to student-athlete success.

On the research front, this public-private partnership has leveraged the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) support to launch the Sports Research and Innovation Initiative. The initiative represents a new and important point of convergence with Switch.

Las Vegas is emerging as an epicenter of sports, with UNLV positioned to elevate competitive athletics as a key catalyst for economic growth and diversification.

Switch shares the enthusiasm, with theSwitch Sports Science Studioas a critical first step toward broader community goals.
