Here’s a look at the Raiders’ new stadium site in Las Vegas — VIDEO

The Oakland Raiders have decided on the location of their new 65,000-seat stadium in Las Vegas. A 62-acre site on Russell Road has been secured by the team.

The plan is to have the stadium constructed and fully operational in time for the 2020 NFL season.

Raiders president Marc Badain said at the Las Vegas Stadium Authority Board meeting in April that the Russell Road site was the organization’s preferred location. The day after that meeting, a billboard was erected over the parcel of land that read “The Raiders Are Coming.”

According to documents on file with the Clark County Recorder’s Office the land was purchased for $77.5 million.
