Developers still have not put a price on the center – widely reported to be in the neighborhood of $800 million – but Snyder confirmed UNLV would be seeking more private funding beyond what Majestic provides. The Las Vegas Area Convention and Visitors Authority, casinos and hotels – "the industry" as Snyder called it – also will be asked to contribute an undetermined amount toward the stadium.
Almost sounds - the more I read it - that it's just as much (if not more) for the city, than it is just for UNLV

Quote:
"This is a three-way partnership between UNLV, our private partner (Majestic) and the industry," Snyder said, "It's natural that they play a role."

Snyder has talked with many of the major casino and hotel executives in town, and said he is confident the hospitality industry will help fund UNLV Now because the stadium would extend their ability to put more "heads in beds."

"Nobody has said we don't need this stadium," Snyder said, referring to his conversation with Strip resort executives. "There is broad-based support for this project."

A study by the University of Michigan’s Center for Sport Management determined that with 15 events annually, a mega-events center would produce a total of $393.2 million in new direct spending for Las Vegas' hospitality sector.

These new events might include a Mountain West Conference football championship game, a new college football bowl game, a NFL exhibition game, the UFC International Fight Week, a championship boxing match, a soccer expo, a smaller Electric Daisy Carnival music festival, the American Country Music awards and touring concerts.

"We will secure a lot more events if we have this stadium," said Pat Christenson, the president of Las Vegas Events, which seeks to attract major events to southern Nevada. "Because this venue itself will become an attraction, it's going to help sell more tickets. With the event, the Las Vegas (Strip) and the venue, it's going to be a highly powerful marketing combination."

Billy is now pissed and raising funds to build a 150 yard jumbotron for miss state. He can't believe that someone would build one bigger than their worlds largest.

Outside of the Jaguars, there really isn't a team really close to leaving; if even them. And even if they are, they are heading to Los Angeles.

I'm not a regular anymore, but it weems like Vegas Pricing for Meals & Rooms & Shows has gone up instead of down.

I could be wrong, but I don't anticipate them selling tickets at bargain prices.

Unless somehow UNLV has a legitimate shot at the PAC12 or BigXII, I don't see that happening, this seems like a big waste just to host a slightly better bowl game.

Again though, it seems like the stadium's equally (or even more) about serving the city of Las Vegas as a major events venue than it is just "a stadium for UNLV to play football in."

Being a local I get to see plenty of shows for free but if someone comes out here wanting to see Celine, Tim McGraw/Faith Hill or any other big name headliner you better be prepared for a $300-$500 night out. Heck even Donny and Marie Osmond at The Flamingo goes for over $125 a ticket. Chris Angel and all of the Circus shows will cost you at least $100+ per ticket.

Vegas is not cheap, I spend most of my time in downtown Vegas. Saw plenty of free concerts this summer. Skid Row, Warrant, Dee Snider, Brett Michaels..I grew up in the 80's so I loved all of these bands. Hit Freemont St if you're in Vegas, drinks are cheap and the people watching is priceless.

You probably think we blackout every game down here in Jax.
Actually, ticket sales were up all season, despite the 2-14 record. I can't remember the last blackout. Very loyal fans down here for the product we've been getting.

There are pretty few 60 thousand plus ticket concerts though. So that is even a bigger waste. I'm sure Vegas has plenty of 20,000 seat venues that would be the right size for just about any concerts.
