The Las Vegas Stadium, the future home of the NFL’s Raiders, is scheduled to be completed a year from today.
Dignitaries will sign the final beam before it is lifted to the top of the stadium, which remains on target to open in July 2020.
MGM Resorts International plans to take advantage of the proximity of the Las Vegas stadium to three of its resorts by hosting pregame and post-game tailgating events.
With a lot of interest being shown by representatives tied to sports, entertainment and corporate events, AEG Facilities Regional Vice President Chris Wright said they’ll have no issue filing the stadium for 46 events annually.
A lawsuit filed this past week names the Oakland Raiders and the Stadium Authority among others tied to a disputed payment mount by a subcontractor.
Las Vegas is betting big on 2020, when more than 15 projects — ranging from a stadium to hotel-casino renovations — are slated to come online.
The stadium will ultimately be built with a variety of structural infrastructure designed to withstand seismic events.
