Here is the gorgeous $2 billion stadium the 'Las Vegas Raiders' are expected to call home

The Raiders could be in their new home as early as autumn 2019.

ON MONDAY, NFL owners voted 31-1 to approve the relocation of the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas.

The Raiders will remain in Oakland for at least the 2017 and 2018 seasons. The 2019 season is still up in the air as the Raiders’ new stadium is expected to take three years to build.

The state of Nevada approved $750 million for a new stadium. Raiders owner Mark Davis pledged $500 million toward the project, and according to a report from the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee, the stadium would cost a total of $1.9 billion.

The renderings of the newstadium, via MANICA Architecture and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, are pretty flashy. Take a look below.

The stadium won’t be directly located in the heart of Las Vegas.
