On Saturday, the Raiders will play their first playoff game since their Super Bowl XXXVII loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following the 2002 season. It could also be their last as the Oakland Raiders as they continue their attempt to relocate to Las Vegas.

Earlier this season, it was reported that the team filed three trademarks for “Las Vegas Raiders.” Meanwhile, Nevada has approved $750 million for a new stadium.

Raiders owner Mark Davis has pledged $500 million toward the project, and according to a report from the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee, the stadium would cost a total of $1.9 billion.

While this is a far from concluded move, the renderings of the stadium, via MANICA Architecture, do portray a flashy, eye-catching stadium.

Take a look below.


The stadium won’t be directly located in the heart of Las Vegas.

The open-aired entrance is a nice touch for cool desert nights.
