The hospitality company MGM Resorts is taking full advantage of the second season of the National Football League (NFL) team Las Vegas Raiders (US) – the first season with fans in the stands – thanks to a current relaxation of COVID-19 protocols – by introducing a new feature.

The ‘Travel Pulse’ stated that MGM Resorts and Bud Light have joined forces to introduce the ‘Bud Light Beer Garden’ to the Las Vegas Strip, an immersive, only-in-Vegas tailgate experience. Non-stop outdoor action awaits football fans before and after all Raiders and University of Nevada-Las Vegas college games, as well as select sports and entertainment events at the nearby Allegiant Stadium.

Las Vegas (US)-headquartered MGM Resorts International is an American global hospitality and entertainment company operating destination resorts in Las Vegas, Massachusetts, Detroit, Mississippi, Maryland, and New Jersey, including Bellagio, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, and Park MGM.

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

The 65,000-capacity Allegiant Stadium is a domed stadium located in Paradise, Nevada, United States. It serves as the home stadium for the Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Rebels college football team.

Chuck Bowling, President-cum-Chief Operating Officer (COO) of MGM’s Mandalay Bay and Luxor hotel-casinos, said in a statement, “The City’s first football season with fans in the stands is a monumental moment. We’ve created a gameday event that embodies the spirit and excitement of Las Vegas and offers fans unique pre-game experiences. We look forward to creating new traditions at this venue for this season and beyond.”

The ‘Travel Pulse’ further stated that the 130,000-square-foot immersive space, located at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Hacienda Avenue, offers complimentary admission to the public, is within walking distance to the Allegiant Stadium and opens four hours prior to each event. It remains open until the event’s conclusion.

Fans can stay close to the action by reserving a parking spot at Mandalay Bay, Delano, Luxor, and Excalibur – each less than a half-mile walk to the Allegiant Stadium.

Fans attending the Bud Light Beer Garden will enjoy:

  • Interactive football challenges and life-sized Jenga (game of physical skill) and chess;
