NFL officials are concerned that Sin City’s stadium won’t be ready to be an oasis in the desert for Super Bowl spectators

According to several reports, the only thing that has looked worse for the Raiders in 2023 than their up-and-down season is the dismal condition of their home stadium. That normally wouldn’t be such a big deal, except the Sin City Silver & Black are set to host Super Bowl LVIII next month.

Allegiant Stadium originally opened in 2020 and was an innovative venue at the time. But now, with the NFL’s biggest event set to take place just off the Strip, there have been some worries that the facilities may be lacking.

Recent photos shared by fans and even NFL reporters on social media show the home of Super Bowl LVIII in serious disrepair – particularly the turf. Notably, Denver Broncos reporter Scotty Gange commented on the disrepair in the desert dirt.

“2nd most expensive stadium in the world…and this is what you get,” he wrote.

This comes after last year’s Super Bowl in Arizona saw choppy field conditions as well. So there is pressure on both the NFL and the city of Las Vegas to have things ready when the game takes place on February 11.

Allegiant Stadium is the second-most expensive stadium in the NFL with a $1.9 billion price tag to construct.
