With a sold-out Allegiant Stadium set to sit fanless for the 2020 NFL season, the Las Vegas Raiders are poised to take one of the largest financial sacks in the league.
On Saturday, the day after the substantial completion milestone, Anthony and Tonie Silva, recent transplants from Salt Lake City to North Las Vegas, set up a full tailgate spread in Ford Lot J on the south end of the stadium.
Fans will be able to get a firsthand look at the stadium this year, minus the action on the field.
Nine-hundred-ninety-three days after the groundbreaking ceremony on Nov. 13, 2017, on what was then a 62-acre lot of dirt, the $2 billion Allegiant Stadium now holds its own on the Las Vegas skyline.
UNLV’s field at Allegiant Stadium includes the team nickname in both end zones and the arched logo on the playing field.
Clark County has issued a temporary certificate of occupancy for Allegiant Stadium, signaling the end of the construction process is near.
The street sign bearing the name of Al Davis, the legendary former owner and head coach of the Raiders, was installed last week off Dean Martin Drive.
The deal, announced Monday, includes nine off-premise digital billboards for general advertising as they commute between Allegiant stadium and McCarran International Airport, as well as the digital marquee sign set for exclusive use by Allegiant Stadium.
The company tasked with installing the majority of signs, Yesco, is capping off its work at the stadium with a trio of the largest of the hundreds of signs they’re installing on the site.
Those looking to work inside the nearly complete $2 billion, 65,000-seat Allegiant Stadium still have time to apply for various game-day positions.
