Allegiant Stadium is the home field of the NFL’s first Las Vegas football team, the Las Vegas Raiders. Only a short drive after being greeted by the landmark “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, Allegiant Stadium sits on the edge of the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada and offers one of its best views by design. The state-of-the-art stadium, nicknamed “The Death Star” for its stark, futuristic exterior bearing the Raiders’ Silver and Black, features large sliding window walls facing the Strip as well as a translucent domed roof.
Allegiant Stadium History
Allegiant Stadium opened in 2020, becoming home to the NFL’s newly-relocated Las Vegas Raiders and the University of Nevada’s football team, UNLV Rebels. The stadium is the second most expensive in the world, with a construction cost of $1.9 billion, and it features 10 levels with 2,200 TVs, 75,000 square feet of video boards, more than 10 event spaces and a 92-foot-tall, 3D-printed torch honoring late Raiders owner Al Davis.
The domed, translucent roof and climate-controlled interior create an oasis effect in the desert climate, and the stadium has an elevated focus on sustainability to address its local climate, donating an average of 11,000 pounds of food waste per event, implementing groundwater dewatering stations to subsidize irrigation and installing energy efficient lights and air-conditioning.
Allegiant Stadium was selected to host Super Bowl LVIII in 2024. Ahead of the 2023-24 season, the venue received its first upgrade with the addition of new club level suites in preparation for the first Super Bowl held in Nevada. The stadium has previously hosted the NFL’s Pro Bowl for two consecutive years, in 2022 and 2023.
Aside from its main football configuration, Allegiant Stadium has also played host to world-renowned performers and events. Since opening, the Las Vegas stadium has seen acts such as The Rolling Stones, Beyoncé, Garth Brooks, Metallica, Elton John and Bad Bunny. It has also been the home to the annual Las Vegas Bowl college football game, WWE SummerSlam and the international CONCACAF Gold Cup. Allegiant Stadium was named by Billboard as the most profitable stadium in 2022 with a total gross of over $182 million.
