LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Ever since Allegiant Stadium opened its doors most Las Vegas locals have had to marvel at the stadium from the outside, but fans will have an opportunity to come inside for private events, UNLV games and tours.
"We have these areas that are very special areas on game day but on a non-game day, we can do a convention, a gala, a dinner, a trade show," said Samantha Johnson, director of sales for Allegiant Stadium.
There are ten spaces available to rent - including clubs, the landing home to the Al Davis Memorial Torch and even the field.
And in COVID times, the field is big enough to fit a sizable group with social distancing in place.
"Typically it's for a larger group," she said. "It could be for 1,500 to 5,000. So, in these times, we're allowing smaller groups to use these spaces so they can spread out and celebrate safely."
And what would a stadium celebration be without food? Allegiant Stadium is already hawking its grub on Raiders games days with to-go packages and now fans will get to dive in in-house too.
And just like the stadium itself - packed with Raiders history and nods to its new home - the menu is thoughtfully curated.
"There's a reason for this food and why we're doing it this way," said Michael Frauenheim, senior executive chef for Silver and Black Hospitality. "It's not just a burger in a bun. It's a dog that comes from the Bay Area. It has a history to it just like the Raiders."
So whether fans come for a UNLV game, a tour or a private event, the home of the Silver and Black is simply a stunner and a new Sin City experience.
"You can't walk into this building without smiling. You can't walk into this building without feeling that you're a part of the Raiders," said Johnson.
