The Rebels will hit the ice in their new home at City National Arena—the practice facility of the Vegas Golden Knights. Last weekend UNLV swept rival, Arizona State University, in their first road-trip of the season.

“We’re excited to get in front of our home fans inside the amazing City National Arena,” said Zee Khan, UNLV Hockey General Manager. “We hope our fans will come out, be loud and make this a hard building to come play in [for other teams], as we continue to establish ourselves at the Division 1 level.”

This weekend will mark the club’s first home games as Division 1 members of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA).

Following Saturday’s matchup, fans and supporters may join the entire team at Pancho’s Mexican Restaurant, located in Downtown Summerlin, for an official meet and greet. Single-game and season tickets are available at rebelhockey.com.
