The Las Vegas Lights began their first season in March.
The Las Vegas Lights' debut kit is a sight to behold.

Las Vegas Lights FC are steadily preparing for their maiden season in the U.S.'s second-tier United Soccer League.

The nascent team revealed their club crest back in October and have now followed up by unveiling their first-ever kit, inspired by the glitz and glitter of their home city.

Safe to say that the Lights haven't exactly opted for the subtle approach, with the new shirt featuring gaudy splashes of cyan, magenta and neon yellow trim all over it.

The accompanying goalkeeper kit is a...
