Come watch UF Hoops in Las Vegas!

In an effort to provide fan support for Florida's national championship basketball team when it ventures to Las Vegas Nov. 24-25 to take on Western Kentucky and Kansas, we have organized an exclusive travel package for Gator fans that includes, a roundtrip, non-stop charter flight from Gainesville to Las Vegas.

This travel package has the makings of a fabulous sports weekend for Gator fans, especially those who don't want to travel to Tallahassee for the Florida-Florida State football game, but still want to enjoy the contest in the company of a Gators-only viewing audience.

Here's what the package includes:

  • Non-stop chartered air from Gainesville to Las Vegas on Friday Nov. 24th
  • Two (2) nights accommodations at The Orleans Hotel & Casino
  • Prime location seating at The Orleans Arena for the Florida-Western Kentucky game (Friday Nov. 24)
  • Prime location seating at The Orleans Arena for the Florida-Kansas game (Saturday Nov. 25)
  • An exclusive viewing party at The Orleans on a large screen set up for the Florida-Florida State football game on Saturday Nov. 25. Both food and drinks will be available at the viewing party and you will be joined by members of the Las Vegas Gator Club to cheer the Gators to a third straight win over the ‘Noles.
  • Non-stop chartered air from Las Vegas to Gainesville on Sunday Nov. 26.
  • Roundtrip airport transfers
  • Florida Gator weekend souvenir
  • Fightin' Gators magazine and book giveaways on the flight to Las Vegas
  • Pregame presentation by Fightin' Gators publisher David Stirt
  • Appearance by a Gator basketball coach prior to the start of the Florida-FSU game to analyze the Western Kentucky game and preview the Kansas game
  • All taxes and gratuities included

Kansas is expecting to bring anywhere from 3,000-4,000 fans to Las Vegas for the weekend, and while Kansas is a lot closer to Las Vegas than Florida, it would be great if there was a large enough presence in the 9,000-seat Orleans Arena to let Billy Donovan and his players know they have strong support wherever they play.
