The 2023 Gold Cup is heading to Las Vegas, the self-proclaimed entertainment capital of the world, for the second consecutive time 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.
While Las Vegas’ soccer ambition was too slow to apply to be a World Cup 2026 venue, the Allegiant Stadium has nevertheless been embraced by Concacaf for its events. The stadium was sold out for the final of the 2021 Gold Cup which saw the US beat Mexico 1-0.
The Allegiant Stadium was the host venue for the 2023 Concacaf Nations League earlier in June where it hosted the two semi-finals as a doubleheader, and four days later on June 18, the 3rd place play-off and final.
A month later on July 12 the stadium will host a 2023 Gold Cup semi-final.
A 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
