New Proposed Las Vegas Stadium Sight for The Raiders
Las Vegas has been the buzz of the nation. Not only did the NHL come to town but now the NFL is closer then ever. The Las Vegas Raiders could become a realization as soon as mid January 2017. The once small town of Las Vegas has been growing rapidly. Clark County Nevada has a current population just over 2.1M and expected to reach 2.8M by 2035.
National sports teams, large corporations and the average American have seen the benefits of Nevada and have already started to migrate. The NFL will be the next major sport league to enter into the Silver State. Las Vegas has put together an amazing $1.9B package that the Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis could not pass up. The Oakland Raiders is the team that has agreed to move to Las Vegas if the NFL allows. The project will be funded in part with $650 million from the family of Las Vegas Sands Corp. Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson. The Oakland Raiders have committed $500 million to the stadium and Clark Couty will bond the remaining $750 million.

Location Number 1
From the IN-N-Out Burger on Tropicana head South on Dean Martin and this large open lot will be on the West side of the road. Directly East of the proposed location marked in ride is the Mandalay Bay Casino.
Location Number 2
The next location is directly in front of the iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. This location is currently the Bali Hai Golf Club located just South of the Mandalay Bay Casino.
