One of two major NFL venues opening in 2020, Allegiant Stadium is home to the Las Vegas Raiders and this video shows how much progress has been made in just 27 months.
The NFL’s Raiders have said their goodbyes to Oakland and are moving north to begin a new life in Las Vegas. Greeting the team is one of the most advanced and impressive stadiums in professional sports.
Designed by Manica Architects, the horseshoe-shaped, 65,000-seater stadium sits at the end of the Las Vegas strip and will feature a large window wall with views of the iconic city.
This time lapse shows the staggering amount of work that has gone into the build with steel framework through to exterior paneling and the framing for the venue’s translucent roof.
Coach John Gruden is quoted on the film as saying: “This is jaw-dropping. I was a coach’s kid at Notre Dame, I got to coach for the Green Bay Packers, and a broadcaster I got to see a lot of different stadiums. But I have never seen a place like this.”
