The game was played there in January, 2022 — and was supposed to be played there the year before but the game was scuttled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Since the Raiders moved to the city two years ago, Las Vegas and Allegiant Stadium has became sense of pride a centerpiece for the NFL.
The NFL Draft was held in Las Vegas in April and the Super Bowl will be played at Allegiant Stadium on Feb. 11, 2024. The rotation of the Super Bowl, NFL Draft and Pro Bowl will likely continue for the foreseeable future in Las Vegas as it is a perfect destination for fans when it comes to location, hotel and entertainment options.
