The stadium is being built across Interstate 15 from Mandalay Bay, on 62 acres of land. The stadium will have the capacity of 65,000 for a football game and 61,000 for a soccer game.

The commencement of this massive project started on November 13, 2017 and is said to be finished 10 months from now on July 31st, 2020. This is a stadium that many people are excited for, in Las Vegas because they will have a football team for their hometown.

A lot of money is being put into the making of this stadium. The cost of this stadium was said to be about 1.8 billion dollars But recently, another 90 million dollars was invested into the making of the Stadium, bringing the total to 1.97 billion dollars. Those 90 million dollars are expected to be used for so called “enhancements”.

For now, all we can do is wait and see how this new stadium will turn out.
