Golden Knights owner interested in bringing MLS to Las Vegas

Las Vegas renewed push for MLS has gotten an additional boost with the interest of Vegas Golden Knights Owner Bill Foley.

Recent discussions have focused on the MLS team potentially playing a renovated Cashman Field, home of the USL Las Vegas Light. But according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Foley would like to place the team at the new Oakland Raiders NFL stadium. 

Raiders owner Mark Davis told the Review-Journal that MLS would be welcome in the new stadium.

“We have 365 days a year to fill in the stadium,” Davis said. “We will be using it for eight [regular-season] dates plus, hopefully, all our playoff games. So that leaves around 353, and then there is [UNLV football].

“Major League Soccer and other events would be at the top of our list to help fill those remaining dates. We are open to listening to anything. We owe that to ourselves and the community,” Davis said.
