We want to support a true champion of downtown in any way possible, so when he asked that the official ceremony happen at Fremont Street Experience we couldn’t say no,” stated Jeff Victor, president of Fremont Street Experience. “We wish him luck and I look forward to seeing him on the field.”

“I’ve always admired the mayor and I’m grateful for the partnership with the city. I just hope he passes his physical,” said Fassel. “If he passes his physical he can be a valuable asset to our team.”

Goodman is excited about having professional football in Las Vegas. “It’s great to have a professional football franchise calling Las Vegas home, and I encourage all of the citizens here to come out and show their support for the Locos,” added Goodman.

After the ceremonial contract signing, fans were invited to stay at Fremont Street Experience for Fan Experience at the “Experience.” Coach Jim Fassel and players signed autographs, take pictures, and interact with the crowd.
