Follow the Raiders’ new Las Vegas stadium build from the ground up thanks to casino-based webcam

  • Construction on Oakland Raiders Las Vegas stadium began on Monday
  • Raiders have installed cameras at the Mandalay Bay to film the building process

NFL stars The Oakland Raiders broke ground at the site of their new stadium in a ceremony on Monday and the NFL team is pulling out all the stops to keep Raiders fans involved.

Raiders followers who want to stay up to date with the development of the $1.9 billion stadium will now be able to follow the building thanks to a live video stream on the team’s official website, showing footage from a camera that has been installed on the nearby Mandalay Bay Hotel.

The Raiders organisation has also set up a North View camera to give fans an even closer look at the building site as the stadium is constructed.

Tribute

Monday’s ceremony was attended by celebrities, former footballers, NFL dignitaries and politicians marking the start of the building process for the domed, 65,000-seat stadium that will eventually be the Raiders’ new base.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval was in attendance, along with the owner of the Raiders, Mark Davis and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who took part in the ground breaking. Speaking to the crowd of 600 who attended, Gov. Sandoval summed up the occasion: “It will be seen around the world as a reflection of the spirit of Las Vegas: a resilient city on the rise.

“This is a very significant day in the franchise’s storied history and a tangible symbol of the team’s future in Las Vegas.”

The ceremony itself got underway with a tribute to those who lost their lives in the mass shooting of October 1, with Raiders staff and local politicians leading a standing ovation for Las Vegas law enforcement officers and first responders.

The Raiders move was approved by NFL owners in March, and Nevada lawmakers authorized a $750 million investment to build the stadium, which is due to open in 2020.

The Raiders will play at the Oakland Coliseum in 2017 and 2018, though they are yet to find a venue for the 2019 season.
