If you haven’t been to a Las Vegas Desert Dogs lacrosse game at Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay, you’re missing out! The sport has speed, high scoring and more. Plus, the team has a pretty cool co-owner: hockey legend and NHL on TNT analyst, “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky.

Fans of number 99, listen up! You’ll be able to score a Desert Dogs jersey with Gretzky’s name emblazoned on the back next month!

The team announced yesterday that the first 3,500 fans going to their March 11th game against the Vancouver Warriors will score the exclusive threads.

Tickets start as low as $25 to take in the action, and there are no ticket fees through Friday, February 10th if you’re into saving money.

Wayne Gretzky owns the Desert Dogs? Who are the Desert Dogs anyway…

This is the first season the National Lacrosse League has had a home team in Las Vegas. While the team is off to a rocky start (6th out of 7 in their conference) they’ve been showing flashes! Like beating the NLL Champions, the Colorado Mammoth, in their most recent game!

Yeah, Wayne Gretzky is a big name owner. However he’s not the only one! The team is co-owned with two-time major golf championship winner Dustin Johnson, legendary NBA baller Steve Nash, and the co-founder of Alibaba and multi-billionaire Joseph Tsai. He also owns the Brooklyn Nets, the Barclays Arena (where they play) and many others sports ventures.

The league boasts fifteen teams – ten in the United States, and five in Canada.

If you haven’t given the sport a chance, maybe now is the time to start. Here’s a video to get you started. You’ll be a “Dog” in no time.
