Raiders have received approval from the NFL to relocate to Las Vegas
The Oakland Raiders have received approval from the National Football League to relocate the franchise to Las Vegas, Nevada and will kick off the 2020 NFL season at the new Las Vegas Stadium. The Raiders are planning to play the 2017 and 2018 seasons in Oakland at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. It seats 65,000 (72,000 for larger events such as concerts)
A groundbreaking ceremony will happen by December of 2017. The construction costs 1.9 billion dollars, with 100 executive suites.
The proposed stadium site is located on the 62.5-acre Russell Road site, just off of Interstate 15 near the Las Vegas McCarran Airport, and adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip. This will altogether bring about 6,000 permanent jobs expected out of the stadium project.
The Las Vegas Stadium is the working name for a domed stadium planned to be built in Paradise, Nevada for the Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League and the UNLV Rebels football team from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
