It’s been the plan for some time that the Las Vegas Raiders will be filled for games at Allegiant Stadium this season. Yet, it has been a fluid situation that was long in development.

But this week, there has been strong signs that the Raiders’ dream of playing in front of a full house in Las Vegas — after playing in an empty Allegiant Stadium in 2020 — for the first time is getting closer to becoming a reality.

This week, Nevada’s Clark County, which Las Vegas is part of, announced that it is opening up fully on June 1. This means that large events will be allowed — so unless there is a setback in the coronavirus pandemic recovery — Allegiant Stadium should be ready to be filled when the Raiders play in the preseason and open their regular season against the Baltimore Ravens on Sept. 13 on Monday Night Football.

As a result, large events are being planned for Allegiant Stadium, with the first major public event there being a Garth Brooks concert in July.

Barring a setback, we will get a chance to see the Raiders at Allegiant Stadium this fall. Of course, you better start saving now as ticket prices are ridiculous.
