Allegiant Stadium will be packed when Super Bowl 2024 hits Las Vegas

Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis has confirmed that “Sin City” will host the Super Bowl for the first time in February 2024.

Allegiant Stadium, which only opened in 2020, will host the NFL’s 58th game after being moved from New Orleans for scheduling reasons.

New Orleans was supposed to host the game, but the league’s move to an 18-week regular season meant the sport’s highlight would collide with Mardi Gras celebrations in the Louisiana city.

Super Bowl 2025 will now be hosted by New Orleans instead.

The state-of-the-art 65,000-seat Las Vegas venue will also host Pro Bowl 2022 and the NFL Draft.

Davis said in a statement, “The Raiders are thrilled that the National Football League has chosen Las Vegas to host Super Bowl (58) LVIII in February 2024.

“Hosting Pro Bowl 2022, NFL Draft 2022 and now Super Bowl 2024 are just some of the perks from the public-private partnership we created with the state of Nevada to bring the Raiders to Las Vegas and build the Allegiant Stadium. . It’s only the beginning.

“But for now – Las Vegas – the Super Bowl is coming to the sports and entertainment capital of the world!”
