The Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee has met to discuss potential sites for a 65,000-seat NFL stadium in Las Vegas, which could be the new home for the Oakland Raiders NFL team, reports ESPN.
In addition to considering nine possible locations, it has also been suggested that the price tag for such a stadium has risen – from early estimates of US$1.4bn to as much as US$2.1bn.
Raiders owner Mark Davis is reported to favor a retractable dome design, with a natural turf surface. EPSN states that Davis has no preference with regards to the various proposed Las Vegas sites.
