Last month, addressing his team for the first time inside Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis announced, “Welcome to the Death Star, where our opponents’ dreams come to die.” Tonight, Davis’ “Death Star” will make its long-awaited debut – assuming Luke Skywalker doesn’t destroy it first – as the Raiders host the New Orleans Saints On “Monday Night Football.” The game will be broadcast live on our sister station, CBS 1500, with coverage starting at 1:30 p.m.
Allegiant Stadium is a fully enclosed, climate-controlled facility that was built at a cost of $1.8 billion. The stadium has a 65,000-seat capacity (expandable to 72,000) and will serve as the home of both the Raiders and the UNLV Rebels.
