The NLL's newest franchise will launch in Las Vegas with digital payments network, Flexa, as presenting sponsor.
During an event at MGM Resorts International's Michelob ULTRA Arena (located inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino), Las Vegas Lacrosse will officially launch its new franchise — the 15th franchise in the league — and announce its ownership team, which includes Wayne Gretzky, Dustin Johnson, Steve Nash, and Joe Tsai. The team is also announcing Michelob ULTRA Arena as its home venue once play begins in late 2022. As presenting sponsor of the launch event, Flexa is working with Las Vegas Lacrosse to share its innovative payments technology with fans at the launch event and beyond.
"Flexa is honored to sponsor Las Vegas Lacrosse, and to work closely with its legendary ownership group," said Tyler Spalding, Flexa co-founder and CEO. "At Flexa, we're working to make commerce better for people all over the world, with a faster, safer, and easier way to pay. The owners of Las Vegas Lacrosse are sports legends and entrepreneurs who share this spirit, and box lacrosse is a fast-paced, exciting sport that we are excited to engage with more over time, particularly in Las Vegas. We look forward to working with the team now and into the future."
Mark Fine, CEO of Las Vegas Lacrosse, added, "Las Vegas Lacrosse strives to be a creative, fast-moving, and forward-thinking organization, with Flexa and its founders typifying the kind of innovative partners and entrepreneurs the team hopes to grow with over time."
