Las Vegas Lights the focus of Henderson Chamber event
HENDERSON, Nev. – The Henderson Chamber of Commerce will host its monthly networking breakfast, “The World’s Game is Coming: Introducing the Las Vegas Lights,” presented by Brett Lashbrook, founder of Las Vegas Soccer LLC, from 7 to 9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9, at the Wildhorse Country Club, 2100 W. Warm Springs Road in Henderson.
Throughout his career, Lashbrook has had the opportunity to work in a variety of sports organizations, including the Kansas City Wizards, the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the 2000 Olympic Summer Games and the Women’s United Soccer Association.
As Lashbrook’s career grew, he played an integral part as the venue director for the 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Portland, Oregon. In this position, he managed all aspects of the event in a short time period, as the venue was awarded the game only five months before kickoff due to a venue change. From there, Lashbrook served as the legal operations project manager for the New York City 2012 Olympic Bid, as a consultant for the Phoenix Coyotes, and as legal council and special assistant to the commissioner’s office for Major League Soccer / Soccer United Marketing.
In May 2013, Lashbrook was hired as the chief operations officer to lead the Major League Soccer’s expansion team in Orlando, Florida. In this role, he oversaw all aspects of the Club’s transition from minor league to a Major League Soccer team.
During the breakfast, Lashbrook will discuss how he formed Las Vegas Soccer, LLC with his family in an effort to bring a professional soccer team to Las Vegas and Cashman Field with a multi-year deal.
Cost for the breakfast is $35 for members and $55 for non-members. There will be an additional $10 charge for walk-ins. RSVP online at www.hendersonchamber.com by Friday, Jan. 5.
