The President of UNLV, Dr. Neal Smatresk, says the board set up to look at building a new stadium on campus, had its best conversation yet.

He says the board is now shopping a more collaborative stadium model, instead of a competitive one. Smatresk thinks this new effort will help the Las Vegas strip. Conventions and big events can be held at the stadium during the week, which will then help fill any empty beds inside the strip resorts.

The real issues right now are, how they will pay for it, and what it’s going to look like. There are also some FAA issues that will need to be sorted out. The board has until June to figure it all out.
