Our gratitude extends to our partners at MGM Resorts International & Michelob ULTRA Arena, whose hospitality has been instrumental in shaping our first two seasons.”  

Responding to the fervent support of their loyal fanbase, the Desert Dogs have heeded the call for a venue tailored specifically for the Southern Nevada community. Lee’s Family Forum, situated in Henderson, offers easy access to residents, an intimate atmosphere, and a closer connection to the heart of their fan base.

“We want to be where our fans live and make a real impact in the community that matters to our fanbase. Embracing Lee’s Family Forum underscores our commitment to forging deeper connections with the residents and families of Las Vegas,” remarked Joe Tsai, Co-Owner of the Las Vegas Desert Dogs. “By being an integral part of the Henderson neighborhood, I hope the Desert Dogs and our players become household names and bring unity and joy to the local community.”

This premier venue also boasts the Sam & Ash Tiltyard at the front entrance, The Valley Health System Royal Landing, which features the venue’s premium seating areas and the Battlement outdoor balcony with views of the Las Vegas Strip. These amenities make Lee’s Family Forum the ideal venue for the Desert Dogs new home.

We are thrilled to welcome another family friendly sports offering to the Lee’s Family Forum lineup,” said Foley Entertainment Group President & CEO Kerry Bubolz. “Lee’s Family Forum will offer the Las Vegas Desert Dogs and their fans first-class amenities in a convenient location, which we expect to produce the best home-field advantage in the National Lacrosse League.
