The 2021 Gold Cup is heading to Las Vegas, the self-proclaimed entertainment capital of the world, in what will be a debut for major event soccer in the city and in one of the shiniest and newest stadium facilities in the US.
Located adjacent to the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, Allegiant Stadium is a 65,000 capacity venue that began construction in November 2017 and was completed at a cost of $1.9 billion in July 2020.
The fully enclosed, climate-controlled stadium became the home of the NFL’s iconic Raiders in 2020 – they adopted the Las Vegas Raiders moniker having transferred from Oakland. As well as NFL, the stadium is designed to host world-class entertainment including concerts and special sporting events such as the Pac-12 Championship Game and Las Vegas Bowl. It also serves as the home of UNLV Football.
An economic impact study calculated the stadium project would generate an economic benefit of $620 million annually while creating 6,000 permanent jobs in Southern Nevada
