Take out your calendars and a pencil, but not a pen, whatever you do, do not use a pen. Ok, now circle Friday, November 18th, but do it lightly, because we may need to have you erase it sometime soon.
That’s the day we are expecting Las Vegas’ first ever major professional sports team to finally get its name.
We are working hard to achieve a November 18th date for the unveil. We are still working to finalize some of the details. -The Creator
Some of those details include the location (inside or out), exact time, and there are still a few merchandising loopholes to tie up.
The date is really just the one they are aiming for more than anything else. If all goes as planned, which if you have been following this process at all you know it probably won’t, that will be the date, but if/when things change, there’s a real chance it gets delayed again.
Things get a bit hairy with the T-Mobile Arena schedule after the 18th though. The following week is Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Then in December, Friday the 16th is the only Friday or Saturday available before Christmas Eve and Christmas Eve Eve. (Double Eve, The 23rd, leave me alone!)
Personally, I love the idea of a Black Friday reveal and I have a feeling anyone who has ever been dragged along shopping is probably with me.
As for now, the 18th is the date we’ll finally learn which adjective will precede Knights and if they’re going with Vegas or Las Vegas. Fingers crossed all goes according to plans between now and then.
