The UNLV International Gaming Institute turned out to be instrumental in the unlikely bid to move the Raiders from Oakland to Las Vegas.
New suites and a field-level club are part of $40 million in new Las Vegas stadium features that could strengthen the city’s 2025 Super Bowl bid.
The Raiders team is in the final stretch of completing a comprehensive transportation plan that will increase parking significantly, Stadium Event Co. Chief Operating Officer Don Webb said.
By nearly every standard, the $1.8 billion Las Vegas stadium is about half finished.
Nearly half of the $1.8 billion has been spent and construction on the Las Vegas stadium is about 44 percent completed with 11 of 26 canopy trusses in place.
Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air said the trademark request is not tied to the $1.8 billion Raiders’ Las Vegas stadium to be completed in 2020.
