There’s another proposal for a new sports stadium in Las Vegas, and this one might be the biggest yet. The International Development Management company is proposing the Las Vegas National Sports Center, to be built on land northeast of the World Market Center downtown. The Center would include three venues: a nearly 18,000-seat basketball and hockey arena, a 9,000-seat minor league baseball stadium, and a 50,000-seat football stadium. The estimated cost is $1.6 billion, but IDM officials say it would be entirely built with private funds. IDM previously proposed a multi-purpose stadium next to the Sahara on the Las Vegas Strip.
The Las Vegas Sports Center is just the latest of multiple sports stadium projects proposed in the Las Vegas Valley. This Friday, the state Board of Regents will hear details on a proposed 40,000-seat domed stadium that would be built next to the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus.
