Report: Las Vegas to host 2024 Super Bowl
Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders, will be announced as the host of Super Bowl LVIII in 2024, pending final approval from the owners, sources told Vincent Bonsignore of The Las Vegas Review-Journal.
An official announcement is expected to take place at the NFL owners' meetings Wednesday.
The 2024 Super Bowl was originally set to take place in New Orleans, but the city was forced to relinquish the event due to a conflict with Mardi Gras celebrations.
Las Vegas proved to NFL owners it could accommodate the Super Bowl by crafting a multi-level plan, Bonsignore adds.
Allegiant Stadium holds 65,000 seats, which falls short of the NFL's requirement of 70,000 for the championship game. However, more seating could possibly be added, or the league could make amendments, according to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez.
The Raiders moved from Oakland to Las Vegas ahead of the 2020 campaign. The city is also slated to host the 2022 NFL Draft and Pro Bowl.
