You know those money machines where people step into a booth and money flies around and you have to grab as much money as you can? Las Vegas Lights FC is taking that plan and going next level.
On September 8, the USL team will be ‘making it rain’ on 200 fans during halftime of their game against LA Galaxy II. According to Mick Akers, the 200 fans will be on the field and someone in a helicopter will drop the money in an apparent free-for-all to collect the money. Didn’t say what the denominations were but it’ll probably be enough bills for it to be profitable for those collecting the money and those in the stands watching.
Las Vegas Lights FC have been rather creative in making their team the most unique in sports. This first-year team has become the first American sports team to have a marijuana dispensary as a sponsor, two llamas named Dolly and Dotty who are mascots and are expected to start in-game betting from the stands. For the players, the Lights have a unique bonus incentive. For each home win, when the Lights score three or more goals, players who participated in the game get $100 in chips for the Plaza Hotel & Casino. The Lights have done this three times so far in their five home wins this season, scoring four goals each time.
