The first Las Vegas Quicksilvers were a soccer team based in Las Vegas, Nevada that played in the NASL. They played only one season, 1977. Their home field was Sam Boyd Stadium (then known as Las Vegas Stadium) in Las Vegas. In 1977 they averaged an attendance of 7,079.[1]

An aging Eusébio played for the Quicksilvers in 1977 but only managed to score 2 goals in 17 games. Wolfgang Sühnholz also played for the Quicksilvers and was named in the NASL 1st All-Star team.

Previous to Las Vegas, the franchise was known as the Baltimore Comets and San Diego Jaws. After Las Vegas, the team moved back to San Diego and became known as the San Diego Sockers.
