LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas Lights FC unveiled their home uniforms on Wednesday night at the Zappos Theater in conjunction with primary jersey sponsor Zappos, revealing the bold BLK design to a packed audience on hand for the event.
“We set out to make the boldest, most unique jersey in all of professional soccer, proudly representing the glitz, flash and glamour of Downtown Las Vegas,” Lights FC Owner & CEO Brett Lashbrook said. “Our club pushes the envelope every chance we get, and this was our biggest opportunity yet. We gave the creative lead to Zappos, and we couldn’t be prouder of the final product. We promise to make our fans smile!”
Included in the unique design is a “smiley face” on the interior, which will allow players to smile for the cameras in an all new way by pulling the jerseys over their heads after goals are scored will double as the most unique celebration jersey element in soccer history.

“This was an amazing opportunity to support our downtown professional sports team, share a little bit of the Zappos culture and contribute in the design the Las Vegas Lights’ first jersey,” said Loren Becker, Zappos Experience and Community Manager. “We all wanted it to be something different, unique and that spoke to the energy, excitement, and dazzle of Downtown Las Vegas. One of Zappos’ core values is ‘Create Fun & A Little Weirdness,’ so it seemed obvious to add the smiley face on the inside of the jersey. The process was extremely fun, collaborative and was a fantastic way to start this partnership with Lights FC.”
The jerseys will be worn in action for the first time Saturday night, when Lights FC welcomes Major League Soccer’s Montreal Impact to Downtown Las Vegas for an 8 p.m. PT showdown at Cashman Field. The club’s away kits will be unveiled ahead of Lights FC’s United Soccer League (USL) regular season opener, taking place March 17 at Fresno FC.
