History

The official approval of the relocation of the Raiders to Vegas was given by the NFL on March 31, 2017. On 1st May the Raiders completed the purchase of land with a cost of $77.5 million and in the same month, a construction contract was officially signed with McCarthy Construction and Mortenson Construction. The stadium was established near the Las Vegas strip. The black and silver exterior of the stadium was accompanied by the construction of translucent roof panels on the roof dome which allowed daylight facility during the day. This new home ground of the UNLV Rebels college football team and the Raiders cost around $1.9 billion. Multiple public and private funds were invested in the establishment of the stadium. Moreover, $750 was contributed by the Hotel taxes while the remainder of the funds came from the NFL and the Raiders. In 2019 The Raiders sold the naming rights of the stadium to the Allegiant Travel Company. In the same year, it was announced that the stadium would also have 20 additional suites. These suites were divided into main concourse and lower suite levels. The goal of these suites was to make Allegiant an attractive destination for the Super Bowl.

The stadium was completed on 31st July 2020, and The first closed-door training session of the Raiders took place in August. However, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the official opening of the stadium was postponed to 2021. Due to health concerns and government regulations, the Raiders did allow their fans to attend any game. Even Mark Davis himself announced that he would not attend any game in the new stadium until spectators can attend. To date 17 games have been hosted at the Allegiant Stadium.

The first game in the Allegiant Stadium took place in September 2020, where the Las Vegas Raiders faced the New Orleans Saints. Meanwhile, the Rebels had to wait for October to play their first match against Reno in the new home ground.
