During the Manhattan Project in the 40s, a number of scientists and other government workers converged on Las Vegas. Various, loosely organized semi-pro teams started during these times and frequently played matches during the atomic test watching parties. In 1956, as Las Vegas continued to build up, a group came forward wanting to organize a professional team for the America League. They called themselves Las Vegas Soccer Club and they became known as the Gamblers. The team built a stadium in the late 1990s that has become known as "The Stadium on the Strip."
They have an intense rivalry with Salt Lake City where crowds frequently near 100,000.
The logo is a combination of many Las Vegas landmarks such as the dessert and the gaming industry. The colors are a unique blue that's somewhere between royal and navy along with tan (not gold).
The team's uniforms feature a multicolored pinstripe that is inspired by the spotlights of the strip. The collar and other trim feature a pattern taken from poker chips. The primary kit is mostly navy and the change kit is all white.
