LAS VEGAS, Nevada — LFA President Sven Bean announced today that the LFA has entered into two event production agreements in April of 2024.

“The LFA team will return to our two most frequented markets to produce two big events in April.” said Bean, who is responsible for venue booking and scheduling for the LFA.



“We will kick things off with a return to Prior Lake, Minnesota and Mystic Lake Casino Hotel on Friday April 5th. ” stated Bean.

“This will mark the second of three scheduled events at the venue for 2024. The Mystic entertainment team is world class, and always help our team to put the best product out there for the fans. It is without a doubt, one of my favorite venues to work with. We had an amazing 2023 tour there and are coming off a successful 2024 kickoff event this past January. We are also very fortunate to have a dedicated and experienced promotional partner in Jeremy Bjornberg. I’m excited to work together and produce another great event on April 5th.” continued Bean.

Sterling Entertainment Group President, Jeremy Bjornberg added:

“I’m really looking forward to another LFA event in the Mystic Lake showroom in April. The event in January was a great way to start the year, and I’m hoping to build off that momentum. I’m excited and grateful to be working with the LFA and Mystic teams on two more successful events for the 2024 season.”

“We will then close out the month of April by heading back to the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on Friday April 26th” stated Bean.

“This will be our 22nd event inside the Sanford Pentagon. The venue is so fan friendly, and a great place to bring your friends to watch live fights. There is not a bad seat in the house, from the Suites, to the VIP Tables, even in the bleacher seats. The venue has that high level sports arena quality, which makes every event feel like a big show. I am grateful for our relationship with Sioux Falls native, Dave Martin, for introducing us to the market. We owe much of our success in the area to him. I am looking forward to our tenth year in Sioux Falls, and the twenty-second event in the venue, and it all starts on April 16th!” stated Bean.

Sanford Sports Complex Director Brock Reynoldson echoed that sentiment:

“The Pentagon team is looking forward to the return of the LFA to Sioux Falls and our venue. The local fan base has come to expect the highest quality even, from production to world class MMA bouts. With our decade long history, the LFA and Sanford teams have created a smooth system for working together. We expect another exciting night for the fans on April 26th.”
