Every die-hard fan knows that an unforgettable sports experience starts long before game time, and doesn’t end when the clock reaches zero. The events are just the beginning, especially in a city that encourages excessive celebration.
That’s what the Ultimate Vegas Sports Weekend is all about. It’s every sports fan’s dream − jam-packed with live events, and with enough fanfare to make even the biggest fan’s head spin.
“Las Vegas only knows one gear, and we never settle for second best. No other city in the world could squeeze in half the incredible action that we will offer sports fans for the Ultimate Vegas Sports Weekend,” said Steve Hill, CEO and president of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). “We’re excited to welcome the more than 100,000 fans who will be in town¬ that weekend.”
The 2019 UVSW takes place Feb. 28−March 3 and will provide an even greater fan experience, with an expanded fan fest and the addition of the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour to the already stacked lineup of NASCAR, USA Sevens Rugby, UFC and Vegas Golden Knights events throughout the weekend. The festivities will kick off with the expanded, free UVSW Fan Fest on February 28 at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center, featuring interactive experiences, athlete appearances and the ultimate tailgate party.
“We’re excited to be part of one of the most amazing sporting weekends in the world. We are honored to put the sport of Rugby Sevens among the largest sporting brands and events around,” said Rob Cornelius, vice president of business development for USA Sevens Rugby. “The ability for fans from around the world to come to our destination and experience UFC, NASCAR, Rugby Sevens, Vegas Golden Knights, championship bull riding and not to mention all of what Las Vegas has to offer, is crazy. It’s great to see such collaboration between the destination and all of the events, showing why Las Vegas is an unbeatable sports destination.”
“We’re thrilled to be one of the marquee events again in 2019 for the Ultimate Vegas Sports Weekend. Las Vegas has become a home to major sports events, and championship-level professional teams, and being able to showcase our destination to the world through sports is something we are very proud of,” said Chris Powell, president of Las Vegas Motor Speedway. “We appreciate the efforts of the LVCVA for bringing all of us together, and we look forward to giving sports fans from around the world a weekend they won’t soon forget.”
