NFL  > General NFL  > Will Super Bowl make its way to Vegas?
February 3, 2014, 06:29 PM
UNLV is paving the way for a state-of-the-art multipurpose stadium to be built on campus, a project that started last May. The stadium is estimated to seat 60,000 people and will have a retractable roof.

If UNLV's full plan for the project comes to fruition, do you see a day when Las Vegas would host a Super Bowl? Would 60,000 seats not be enough, considering the stadium that just hosted the sold-out Big Game seats over 80,000 fans?

Reading about the "UNLV Now" project got me thinking about the idea of a Super Bowl being played in Vegas. A pipe-dream is probably as far as the idea will ever go. Although, Vegas and Super Bowl seem to go hand-in-hand.

Marge has hit it on the head, without a team here locally the Superbowl cannot come here.

Stadium might be too small, and even if it was acceptable at 60k, the bigger hurdle might be the proximity to the gambling establishments. Not sure why - people bet on games everywhere anyway. But the NFL has always been very opposed to sports betting it seems. LV should have a great pool to draw cheerleading talent from. :) About 5 years ago, rumor had it that the Chargers considered a relocation to LV.
