The Raiders’ new home of Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas appears to be blending in perfectly to its new location.
Vegas reporter Joe Bartles was driving by the stadium and took footage of what it will look like when it’s all lit up -- and it looks pretty amazing.
The black with silver lighting gives the perfect homage to the color scheme of the team.
The $1.8 billion project is maintaining strides toward its projected July 2020 opening. Construction began in September of 2017.

It’ll be a top technological experience for those in attendance, as any venue should in 2020. In addition to some of the best Wi-Fi, there will be nearly 2,200 screens throughout the stadium. There will be 65,000 seats as well as a translucent plastic polymer roof.
It gets hot in Vegas, of course, so that extra detail was imperative.

NFL coaches will be allowed to move back into their team facilities beginning Friday, but just when the Raiders’ staff checks into its Henderson headquarters remains to be seen.
Construction of the 335,000-square-foot facility is still being completed, though team officials hope to move into the building this month. Like coaches around the league, the Raiders’ staff has been working remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Moving trucks arrived on Monday to the Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center, the new headquarters, from the previous facility in Alameda, Calif.
Word of warning to anyone wondering how the Raiders are preparing to utilize rookie Lynn Bowden this season: Don’t bother asking him. He isn’t at liberty to say.
“I’m really not permitted to speak about that right now,” Bowden said while taking a break from the Raiders virtual OTA’s.
The mum’s the word response wasn’t relayed out of anger or deceit. The outgoing Bowden can’t wait to get on the field in his first NFL season and is beyond excited to help the Raiders anyway he can. He’s open and frank about all that and doesn’t mind expressing it one bit.
