The Oakland Raiders will have AEG Facilities as their stadium operator when the 65,000-seat stadium opens in August 2020 as the team’s new home in Las Vegas.
The stadium will also host UNLV college football and events including concerts, collegiate championships, and other special events including the Las Vegas Bowl, which will match a Pac-12 team against an opponent from either the SEC or Big Ten Conferences each year.
AEG Facilities will be responsible for the pre-opening functions including hiring and training of the stadium’s full-time staff, plus the planning and executing of the stadium’s grand opening schedule of events and activities.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to partner with one of sports’ most recognizable, successful and iconic international brands and with a city known as the ‘sports and entertainment capital of the world’ in a stadium destined to set new standards for the fan experience that will be created,” AEG Facilities president Bob Newman said.
AEG Facilities is a stand-alone division of AEG and owns, operates or provides services to venues such as Staples Center in Los Angeles; Oracle Arena in Oakland, California; Sprint Center in Kansas City, Kansas; the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas; KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky; AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami; and Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
