Allegiant Stadium cost approximately $1.9 billion to build.

Construction began in 2017, breaking ground in November. The stadium was finally completed and opened in July 2020. The domed stadium has an interchangeable surface. The Raiders play on a natural grass field, while the UNLV Rebels play on artificial turf.

The capacity for Allegiant Stadium is 65,000 people for NFL games and can be expanded to fit 71,835 people. For soccer, the stadium only holds 61,000 fans. It doesn’t rank among the largest NFL stadiums.
