“The Vegas Winter Kick is going to be an exciting event for Las Vegas,” said Libonati. “Our city has played host to several World Class events. Soccer is the world’s sport and Las Vegas is the world’s playground. As the President and COO of Justice Entertainment Group we couldn’t be more pleased to have entered the world of soccer with our partners, the New York Cosmos, and to bring the Vegas Winter Kick to our great city.”
The Vegas Winter Kick will be a two week event that will feature many exciting and entertaining events involving soccer and soccer instruction that will take place in a festival-like atmosphere in and around Sam Boyd Stadium. The soccer fortnight will culminate with the match between the New York Cosmos and an opponent to still be announced.
“I look forward to returning home and working together with our city and hotel properties to create a one of kind experience,” Libonati enthused. “This will be a truly unique and worldwide event.
