A new era in sports for Michigan’s Capital region will kick off April 13th at Cooley Law School Stadium in downtown Lansing with the inaugural match of the Lansing Ignite, Michigan's only professional soccer team.
The Lansing Ignite inaugural season will consist of seventeen home games to be played in downtown Lansing between March and September. Single-game tickets will cost between $15 and $22 each. Season tickets are currently available and Lansing Ignite merchandise of all kinds is for sale in the Nuts and Bolts store inside Cooley Law School Stadium. The games themselves are sure to be hot and will consist of matches versus other USL League 1 teams from Tennessee, Wisconsin, Texas, Florida, Virginia, Georgia, Toronoto and more.
The Greater Lansing Sports Authority played an integral part in bringing Lansing Ignite to town by bringing together all the necessary partners and shopping Greater Lansing as a location to key investors. "The inclusion of the Lansing Ignite into the Greater Lansing sports landscape is in many ways a crowning jewel," said Mike Price, Executive Director of the Greater Lansing Sports Authority. "Our region offers great Big Ten sports with MSU, classic minor league baseball with the Lugnuts and now the state's only pro soccer team with the Lansing Ignite. Pro soccer in the area will draw new fans of all kinds to first enjoy a soccer match in downtown Lansing and then enjoy the areas other great offerings like dining, entertainment and much more. It's a real win-win."
