The Oakland Raiders continue to attempt a relocation to Las Vegas and after seeing its planned stadium design, we can see why. The state of Nevada has already approved $750 million USD for a new stadium while team owner Mark Davis has pledged $500 million USD and has filed three trademarks for “Las Vegas Raiders.” According to a report from the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee, the stadium would cost a total of $1.9 billion USD. The SNTIC estimates that the city of Las Vegas can expect $100 million USD worth of media exposure per year from the NFL team and that holding sporting events would generate $51.7 million USD per year.
Although nothing is set in stone yet, the 65,000-seat stadium renderings provided by MANICA Architecture are marvelous to look at in the gallery above. Let us know what you think.
