The Raiders’ new Las Vegas stadium is coming along nicely.
Back in January, we got a first look at the all-all black Allegiant stadium that many fans have dubbed the “Death Star.
The $2 billion, 65,000-fan-capacity — expandable to 72,000 — indoor stadium located just west of the Strip will be a needed upgrade from Oakland’s RingCentral Coliseum, opened in 1966.
The 1.75 million-square-foot facility will have all the features expected in a modern sports stadium and then some when it is substantially completed on July 31, 2020
Allegiant Stadium won’t have a retractable roof, but it will have massive retractable doors.
Lanai doors will open to an 80-by-215-foot opening on the stadium’s north end, allowing for fresh air and an outdoor feel and offering views of the Strip.
The stadium is now lit up at nights and it looks fucking badass.
Despite the current health crisis that has much of the world in a standstill, construction at Allegiant stadium is still a go and the $2 billion stadium will try to be finished by the end of July.
Once its finished the Raiders might have the best stadium in the league.
