With everything going on in the world, I keep forgetting that the Raiders are moving to Las Vegas and opening a new stadium. While we still don’t know what the NFL preseason will hold, they were supposed to have their preseason opener on August 27th — about 1.5 months away. Therefore, logic dictates the stadium must be nearly complete.
On Wednesday, the Raiders released a video of Allegiant Stadium’s progress. Unsurprisingly, it looks pretty awesome inside:
Obviously, the team is going to present their new stadium in a promotional video in the sleekest sense possible. That being said, I really like the color scheme of the seats and the way the lighting comes in through the translucent roof. It probably won’t get gushed over by TV announcers in the same way that Jerryworld did, but whenever we reach a point where this venue is allowed to be filled with fans I think it will look really spiffy.
