The Vegas Thrill has arrived! Well, they’ll really arrive in 2024 in their inaugural season. According to an article by Larry Hamel on VolleyBallMag.com, the team will play their games at the Dollar Loan Center Arena in Henderson.
As you know, that state-of-the-art 5,567 seat arena is also home to the Henderson Silver Knights hockey team of the American Hockey League. They are the minor league affiliate of our Stanley Cup Champion Vegas Golden Knights. Additionally, the NBA G League Ignite, and the Vegas Knight Hawks of the Indoor Football League play there. Now, the Vegas Thrill will call Dollar Loan Center Arena their home.
More Details About The Pro Volleyball Federation
Beginning in 2024, there will be seven teams in the inaugural season of the Pro Volleyball Federation. Besides the Vegas Thrill, the league includes the Columbus Fury, the San Diego Mojo, the Grand Rapids Rise, the Orlando Valkyries, the Atlanta Vibe, and the Omaha Supernovas. That information also comes from Hamel’s article, where you can also see the new logo for the Vegas Thrill. Or, catch this report by Nick Walters on KTNV.com by clicking here.
In addition, the VolleyBallMag.com article goes on to explain that the PVF will start with a 24-game season. Basically, this will allow each team to play every other team two times at home, “and twice on the road.” League officials are also working on finalizing plans for both streaming and television broadcasts.
Hamel’s article quotes league co-founder Dave Whinham, who believes that this is the right time to start the Pro Volleyball Federation. He states that NCAA women’s volleyball is “the third-most-viewed college sport behind football and men’s basketball.”
