Raiders Las Vegas stadium is on time and budget, officials say

Updated July 20, 2018 – 12:20 am

Las Vegas stadium work crews are putting the equivalent of about $4 million a day into work at the site, and the project is on time and on budget, Las Vegas Stadium Authority officials said Thursday.

Precast steel is arriving at the site at Interstate 15 and Russell Road this week, and the last grade-level concrete slabs are scheduled to be poured later this month.

More than 500 workers are on the $1.8 billion, 65,000-seat indoor football stadium project due to be completed in time for the 2020 NFL season.

Stadium authority officials and Raiders executives also reported that sales of personal seat licenses — contracts with fans that give them access to purchasing season tickets for Raiders games for 30 years — are going better than expected.

Raiders President Marc Badain said after the meeting that the team is in the second of three phases of PSL sales, with Oakland season ticket holders getting the first crack at mid-level PSLs through mid-August. Las Vegas fans who have placed deposits will be invited to participate next.

PSL costs

PSLs for those seats range from $3,900 to $15,000 per seat.

Club-level and VIP seat PSLs — the most expensive at between $20,000 and $75,000 per seat — were sold between March and May. About 73 percent of those sales went to fans with Nevada addresses. Badain wouldn’t predict what percentage of buyers would be from Nevada in the current sale.

A third tier of sales will occur later in the year for the last PSLs and season tickets.

Stadium Authority Chairman Steve Hill said the successful sales are reflective of the popularity of the team and Las Vegas.

“The combination of the Raiders and Las Vegas is pretty hard to beat,” Hill said after the meeting. “The (Vegas) Golden Knights are giving us a run for our money, and that’s a great thing, too. The Raiders have one of the world’s greatest football brands, and Las Vegas obviously is a brand in and of itself and when you combine those two things, we’re seeing that in the interest in the stadium and sales.”

Hill said he expected PSL sales to be strong.

“I think prices that are out there is what we expected them to be,” Hill said. “We had some conversations both at the (Southern Nevada) Tourism Infrastructure Committee and throughout the Stadium Authority board process where those prices were in alignment of what they are at other stadiums, and the demand is there.”

Golden Knights cap ‘crazy year’ with four wins at NHL Awards

Expansion team honored after reaching Final, uniting city following shooting

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist
June 20th, 2018

LAS VEGAS — It was the epilogue to the fairy tale of the 2017-18 Vegas Golden Knights.

Three hundred sixty-four days after assembling their first roster at the 2017 NHL Awards and NHL Expansion Draft at T-Mobile Arena, they took center stage at the 2018 NHL Awards presented by Hulu at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Four first responders and four survivors of the mass shooting on the Strip on Oct. 1 stood at one point with four members of the Golden Knights who won awards: general manager George McPhee, coach Gerard Gallant, center William Karlsson and defenseman Deryk Engelland.

The Golden Knights became Las Vegas’ first major league sports team, united the city in the aftermath of Oct. 1, shattered records for first-year teams in the regular season and made the Stanley Cup Final, losing to the Washington Capitals in five games.

“It was a dream season right till Game 5,” Gallant said. “It was an unbelievable year. Obviously nobody expected us to come out of the gate like we did. Nobody expected us to be in the playoffs. We had a great team. We had a great season. Fell a little bit short, but I’ll go home this summer very proud of our group and the organization.”

McPhee won the NHL General Manager of the Year Award a little more than four years after the Capitals fired him as their GM. Though the Golden Knights had more favorable rules than previous expansion teams did, McPhee and his staff took advantage of them and exceeded expectations. They did a masterful job of collecting assets for the long term while building a team for the short term, finding players with upside, speed and character.

“It was really hard for me to believe, to be honest with you,” McPhee said. “Every month, I was like, ‘Boy, is this really happening?’ As I’ve said a number of times, I had my fingers crossed all year hoping it wouldn’t turn to dust. And each week, we kept winning. And then we won a round, and then won another round, and then won another round. And I was like, ‘This is too good to be true. We might win the Stanley Cup.’ And then we didn’t. And then you come back down to earth. But it was just an extraordinary year in all of our lives.”

Gallant won the Jack Adams Award as coach of the year after getting fired as coach of the Florida Panthers in 2016-17, after being a finalist for the award with Florida in 2015-16. He brought together players discarded by other teams by keeping an open mind, putting them in positions to succeed and boosting their confidence. Nick Robone, the UNLV assistant who was shot Oct. 1, was visited by Vegas players in the hospital and got to break down video with Gallant and his staff as he recovered, made the announcement.

New path to stardom: promoting Las Vegas slot machines

Trend alert: Both Vanna White and “Seinfeld’s” “Soup Nazi” actor made celebrity appearances for Vegas slot machines on Tuesday.

At the Global Gaming Expo, Mayor Carolyn Goodman presented a key to the city to White on the 20th anniversary of the ubiquitous “Wheel of Fortune” slots, which have taken in $3 billion and paid out 1,000 millionaire jackpots, says slot maker IGT.

Meanwhile, actor Larry “Soup Nazi” Thomas did the “ta-da” reveal for new “Seinfeld” slots at the Scientific Games booth in the Global Gaming Expo.

For years, the Strip has launched slot machines with slight celebrity appearances, but this marketing plan seems to be ramping up lately.

“Party girl”/actress Tara Reid helped get press for TMZ’s interactive slots at the Hard Rock Hotel on Aug. 29.

If stars do red carpets at nightclubs and restaurant events, why couldn’t the next place red carpets roll out regularly be casino floor slot machines?

Juan Gabriel’s Las Vegas legacy charts the growth of Mexican holiday

Juan Gabriel doesn’t really need to claim a piece of Las Vegas history, given the legacy “El Divo Juarez” leaves in Latin America.

All the same, he really started something here.

The Mexican superstar’s death, just three weeks before a planned Friday concert at Mandalay Bay, reminds us just how big a deal Mexican Independence Day has become on the Strip since Gabriel’s 1990 concert took the Strip’s celebration of “El Grito de Dolores” to a new level.

Gabriel then had the biggest-selling album in Mexico (8 million copies of “Recuerdos, Vol. II”) and had sung to stadiums of 70,000 people by the time he was booked to play a 6,500-seat outdoor venue that had been set up for boxing behind The Mirage.

If it was a bit of a comedown, it didn’t bother him. “I see this as a big challenge for me,” Gabriel told the Review-Journal through a telephone translator in 1990. “One of the most divine things is to have to start all over again.”

For Las Vegas, it was a start, period. Mexican Independence Day had been more of a locals celebration in Freedom Park, with token casino support on the Strip.

LOOK: Raiders release splashy new renderings of $1.9 billion stadium in Vegas

If you’re betting on where the Raiders are going to be playing football in five years, you might not want to drop any money on Oakland because it looks like the odds are starting to favor Las Vegas.

For the past four months, Raiders owner Mark Davis has  made it clear that he’ll be moving his team to Vegas if the city builds him an NFL stadium.

That possibility now seems to be one step closer to reality after the team gave a stadium presentation in front of the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee (SNTIC) on Thursday.

During the presentation, the Raiders — and their partner, the Sands Casino Group — made one thing absolutely clear: If the state of Nevada is willing to commit $750 million in public funding towards a new NFL stadium, then the stadium will get built and the Raiders will move to Vegas.

The state of Nevada is willing to commit a lot of public money, but has been hesitant to commit to the $750 million total. The state  would rather commit somewhere between $500 and $600 million to the $1.9 billion stadium project.

However, that’s not an option, according to Sands president Rob Goldstein.
