New for 2020 in Las Vegas is a groundbreaking and technological marvel. The brand new Raiders Stadium or The Death Star, as some of us who live in Vegas like to call it, is a modern masterpiece. The stadium is a massive 2 Billion dollar forum built to house not only the Las Vegas Raiders NFL Franchise, but also future mega-concerts, college football games, world-class professional soccer matches, and so much more. Positioned firmly across Highway 15 from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, this 65,000 person capacity venue is set to forever change not only the landscape of Las Vegas but also its status as an international destination. With its shinning black exterior, lined with bright white lights, this stadium will be seen by every person who flies into Las Vegas for generations to come.
A professional sports franchise in Las Vegas has long been frowned upon in the city of sin. Las Vegas and its open gambling laws and legal sports betting options have brought fears of corruption and match-fixing for decades. The National Hockey League finally broke through and announced an expansion franchise known as the Vegas Golden Knights in June 2016. This groundbreaking announcement and the subsequent success of the Golden Knights franchise, with its record-breaking attendance figures at the newly built T-Mobile Arena, paved the way for the NFL to seriously consider expansion or relocation and for this stadium to become a reality.
Breaking ground in November 2017, Raiders Stadium has had a tumultuous construction process. Rumors of catastrophic roofing design failures headlined local news. They caused concern that the dream of an NFL team moving to Las Vegas would be postponed indefinitely. Additionally, the Coronavirus / COVID-19 outbreak has caused many of its construction workers to test positive and become infected, pushing back the completion date, and threatening to shut down construction entirely. OSHA issued strict mandates for Social Distancing protocols to be implemented for its workers building the stadium. While this crisis has affected everyone in the world, the good news is that Raiders Stadium is still on track to be completed for the 2020 Season starting in September.
Once completed, the stadium's main attraction will be its upcoming 8 game home schedule this fall. A few marquee teams and recognizable names will be traveling to Las Vegas for primetime games under the lights, including Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints for the home opener and inaugural game on Monday Night Football September 21, 2020. Legendary quarterback, Tom Brady, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play for Sunday Night Football on October 25, 2020, and the AFC West division foe and Super Bowl winning quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, leads the Kansas City Chiefs into town on November 22, 2020. These highly anticipated matchups will surely be the hottest tickets in town.
