Raiders Get Las Vegas Makeover

A
nightclub “experience” is being installed at the northern end of Allegiant Stadium thanks to a partnership between the Las Vegas Raiders and Wynn Resorts.

Stretching the length of the end zone, the Wynn Field Club will offer “world-class DJs, premium bottle service, four bars and 42 TVs”, according to Wynn Nightlife.

Raiders president, Marc Badain, said: “Allegiant Stadium welcomes the addition of the Wynn Field Club, where guests will be able to enjoy a distinctive stadium experience that is one-of-a-kind in the sports and entertainment capital of the world.”

At almost 11 000 square feet, the club will have an occupancy up to 719 people.

In other United States (US) sports news, restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic are being eased, allowing for greater attendance numbers at sporting events.

SportsBusiness reports that Capital One Arena and Nationals Park have received approval for full attendance numbers to recommence, with the easing of restrictions in Washington on June 11.

However, full attendance is conditional on the National Hockey League’s (NHL’s) Washington Capitals and the National Basketball Association’s (NBA’s) Washington Wizards going far in the playoffs, according to SportsBusiness.

Meanwhile in New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo, announced there would be a “fully vaccinated fan section” making up half of the Nassau Coliseum for the New York Islanders NHL playoffs due to start on May 19.

In a statement, Cuomo said: “As our positivity and hospitalisation rates go down and our vaccination numbers go up, we are readjusting our reopening strategy to get out economy back up and running.”

“The Islanders have always been Long Island’s team and this new measure to increase capacity will allow more of the team’s passionate fan base to enjoy the final games at the Coliseum and help reenergise the team as they head into the playoffs,” Cuomo said.
