‘DIVE IN TO SIN CITY’ WITH THE SAN DIEGO SEALS

Seals to Host Mammoth in Las Vegas 

We’re turning ‘Sin City’ into our home-away-from-home on February 1, 2020 when the team plays host to the Colorado Mammoth at Orleans Arena. And for once, in Las Vegas, you’re a guaranteed winner. That is, if you’re a season ticket member!

The majority of Seals’ season ticket members will receive free hotel rooms in the desert oasis for the weekend of the team’s big game – and Sunday’s pro football championship.

“We’re honored to represent the National Lacrosse League for the first-ever game in Las Vegas, and to bring the Seals faithful on the road with us by providing complimentary hotels to many of our fans,” said Seals president Steve Govett. “The additional benefit of showcasing professional box lacrosse to a new audience is exciting. The atmosphere at Orleans Arena is going to be electric, and we look forward to exposing the sport to a brand-new fan base in an iconic city.”

A destination game in Las Vegas marks a monumental moment in the long and storied history of the NLL, and provides fans with a unique and exciting opportunity to witness the best lacrosse players in the world.

“For 33 years, the National Lacrosse League has brought energy and excitement to millions of fans across North America,” said NLL commissioner Nick Sakiewicz. “We are thrilled to collaborate with the San Diego Seals to create this incredible opportunity for their fans, as well as the Colorado Mammoth fans, to experience a unique and spectacular event. As we continue to expand our amazing product to fans across North America and around the world, we are always looking to our future, and are excited to be working with Seals owner Joe Tsai, Steve Govett, Orleans Arena and all our partners to create this unique event in Las Vegas on the City’s biggest weekend of the year.”

Kicking off the city’s most exciting weekend of the year, San Diego and Colorado will play the day before The Big Game for their first matchup of the 2019-20 season. The Seals swept the Mammoth in three games in the team’s inaugural campaign.

This February’s game presents fans with an entire weekend of festivities in ‘The Entertainment Capital of the World’. As if a game in Vegas wasn’t enough, fans will be able to enjoy world-class shows, restaurants and gaming, and are invited to watch the pro football championship on the field at Orleans Arena on Sunday afternoon.

The only way to guarantee your seats – and complimentary hotel – in Vegas is by becoming a season ticket member. Reserve your seats today at SealsLax.com.
