LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Allegiant Stadium is still on track for completion, according to the Stadium Authority Board.
The board meeting for March 19 has been canceled because of the new novel coronavirus.
When asked if construction at the stadium would be affected by the pandemic, the board sent the following statement:
All information available at this point indicates that Allegiant Stadium remains on schedule and on budget. Funds to complete the project were secured prior to commencing construction, including a roughly 18-month room tax reserve that secures the stadium bonds. While we are mindful of the inherent uncertainly created by the immediate health care crisis, as of now, the project remains on track.
The stadium is scheduled to be complete by the end of July, It will serve as home for the National Football Leagues' Las Vegas Raiders and UNLV Rebels college football team.
Tickets for the first major concert at the stadium on Aug. 22, featuring Garth Brooks, sold out last Friday in 75 minutes.
