UNLV football season ticket holders and members of the Rebel Athletic Fund will get a survey today requesting their feedback on pricing and benefits as the program moves into the $1.8 billion Las Vegas Stadium in 2020.
However with the move out of Sam Boyd Stadium and into the facility near Russell Roadway and Interstate 15 that will be shown the NFL’s Raiders, pricing needs to be evaluated.
” As we move into Las Vegas Arena, we wish to ensure there are alternatives for everyone to experience the new first-rate house of the Rebels,” UNLV Director of Sports Desiree Reed-Francois said in a statement. “The initial step in preparing for that move is asking our loyal season ticket holders in addition to our generous benefactors to offer us with critical feedback. Las Vegas is a great city with fantastic people and fans, and we want our stakeholders to know that we are developing something special here, together.”
UNLV averaged 16,822 paid fans per video game in 2018, but officials anticipate that figure to increase in the new stadium because it is better to school and will be much easier for trainees to get to.
However UNLV will have to pay operations expenses to play in the brand-new arena– anywhere between $100,000 and $150,000, if not greater.

The university anticipates to release details on the seating procedure for the brand-new stadium in February when the renewal period begins for the last season at Sam Boyd Arena. And while the program anxiously awaits its relocation, it is also commemorating its long history at Sam Boyd.
” We are eagerly anticipating spending the 2019 season commemorating completion of an age at our arena of nearly 50 years,” Reed-Francois stated.
