It is alleged that the Las Vegas Raiders offered to host Super Bowl LVIII. The announcement comes at a time when the NFL announced that it will no longer host New Orleans in 2024 and will do so in 2025 instead. Owing to Mardi Gras conflicts, the decision to make the change was made.
It has also been revealed this week that the Pro Bowl for this season has been cancelled. It was expected to take place at Allegiant Stadium, the raider’s den. Because of this, in 2022, the NFL will allow the stadium to hold the Pro Bowl. The cancellation was due to the pandemic and continuing limitations on COVID-19.
The Allegiant Stadium and the city of Las Vegas will be received as well as a candidate for the Super Bowl, according to an NFL official. Peter O’Reilly, NFL executive vice president of club business and league activities, said it provides the game with an enormous level.
To announce a replacement city for the event, the NFL is waiting for 2021. The decision is in the hands of the owners of the league and a well-known venue that could be used to accommodate the event is Las Vegas.
In addition to this latest Super Bowl news, the Raiders have also signed an agreement with BetMGM, a sports betting operator. The brand revealed the deal in September, with BetMGM to act as the official sports betting partner of the team.
The operator will provide a private MGM Club at Allegiant Stadium as part of the contract, where an exclusive experience for game watching will be offered. A luxury lounge as well as updated stadium seating and a full service bar are included in this area.
