The spectacular Allegiant Stadium located in Paradise, Nevada, US, will soon throw its doors open to the National Football League (NFL) team Las Vegas Raiders fans, who will be given the first chance to tour the jaw-dropping arena.

‘Las Vegas Review-Journal’ reported that tours of the $2 billion, 65,000-seat facility were now being offered to Raiders personal seat license (PSL) holders.

A personal seat license, or PSL, gives the holder the right to buy season tickets for a certain seat in a stadium. This holder can sell the seat license to someone else if they no longer wish to purchase season tickets.

The 65,000-capacity Allegiant Stadium is a domed stadium located in Paradise, Nevada, United States, which opened on July 31st, 2020 and serves as the home of the top tier American football club Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League, and the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) Rebels College football team.

The Las Vegas Raiders are a professional American football team based in the Las Vegas metropolitan area (US). The Raiders compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s American Football Conference West division.

The stadium which sprawls over 62 acres spanning 1.75 million square feet is built in the heart of Las Vegas and overlooks the famous ‘The Strip’ skyline. It has more than 100 bathrooms, six modern kitchens and is considered to be a masterpiece of architecture with white and black marble floors, 7,400 glass and metal panels on the outside and 20,000 lights which is looked upon as the brightest star in the Nevada desert.

A statement on the Allegiant Stadium website read, “The Raiders have been working on a unique way for you to experience Allegiant Stadium and are ready to open it to the public. Now, PSL holders have the first chance to go on this behind-the-scenes journey through Raiders history and culture, filled with surprises you could only find in Vegas. We guarantee it’s like no other stadium tour in the world!”

“Led by expert hosts, this immersive behind-the-scenes experience will take you through ultra-exclusive areas such as private suites and clubs, the Broadcast Booth, the Locker Rooms, the Ubeo Press Conference Room and you will also be given a chance to step out onto the field! You will get an up-close look at the Al Davis Memorial Torch.”

The tour would provide an out of the world immersive experience. It will also give a view of ‘The Strip’, the neon lights lit strip lined with upscale casino hotels, complex houses, restaurants, shops, and performance venues.

An email sent to PSL holders stated they will be offered 20 percent off tour pricing, which regularly goes for $59 for a walk through or $80 for the tour and drink-with-a-view package.

The Allegiant Stadium website statement further read, “Tours are approximately 75 minutes in length and include over one (1) mile of walking. Comfortable walking shoes are encouraged. No heels or metal bottom shoes. Please note that this on-sale is for PSL accounts only. PSL seat visits are not available before, after or during the tour. Stadium tours follow a predetermined route that is timed to maximize the experience of all guests. As soon as regulations permit larger gatherings, we will be scheduling PSL Holder Open houses so you may see your individual seat location.”

The statement added, “Tickets are available online approximately five (5) weeks in advance. Capacity is limited. Tickets must be purchased online in advance. Tickets are required for all guests aged two and older. Those younger than two years of age are free of charge. Please note that strollers/wagons are not allowed in the tour.”

“Tours are customized daily based on availability of tour features. This is no guarantee that all stops or features will be included in every tour. If a stadium event is scheduled, public tours will not be available. All tour dates, times and tour stops are subject to change without notice due to events at Allegiant Stadium. All sales are final.”

The website further pointed out that, “Allegiant Stadium is a cashless venue. For guests who only bring cash, we have cash-to-card kiosks in the stadium where guests can exchange cash for a pre-paid card that can be used anywhere major credit cards are accepted.”

‘Las Vegas Review-Journal’ added that despite first being open to PSL holders, fans won’t be allowed to go anywhere near or see their seat during a tour. Separate open house events are planned when larger gatherings will be allowed, where PSL holders can view their seats.

The guided tour takes about 75 minutes. Attendees will be subject to flashing lights and loud noises. Guests are banned from shooting a video during their tours.

The upgraded guided tour and drink-and-a-view package includes the same tour as the basic package but also includes guests having a drink in the Coors Light Landing space which includes the 93 foot tall Al Davis Memorial Torch.

The torch which is lit before every game by the team and fans is a tribute to Al Davis, who passed away in 2011 and was the long time owner of Raiders and considered to be the architect of the Raiders Commitment to Excellence.
