NEW MEXICO CITY (KRQE) — The most immersive, exhilarating and artistic night of the season for New Mexico United is back for a third year as the team prepares to host Meow Wolf Night on Saturday, July 16. There will be plenty of festivities including special jerseys, a pre-game tailgate and a costume contest with a grand prize round trip to Las Vegas.
“Meow Wolf Night is the most incredible, engaging and expressive football experience on the planet,” said United owner Peter Trevisani. “We encourage fans to come as themselves, authentic, artistic and beautiful, to create costumes that have never been seen in this dimension and to create an atmosphere unparalleled in American football!”
The “Costume Creature Disco” tailgate party gives fans the opportunity to show off in their wildest costume for a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas, Nevada for United’s game against Vegas Lights plus two tickets for Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart.
