THE LAS VEGAS 51’s GET A NEW BALLPARK

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board of directors voted to pass a deal that gives the Las Vegas 51’s baseball team a new ballpark that will open in 2019 in Downtown Summerlin.

The LVCVA is allotting $80 million for naming rights and approved a 20-year agreement with owners of the 51’s – the Howard Hughes Corp - for the right to be the dominant sponsor of the stadium and has a guarantee that “Las Vegas” will always be included in the team’s name.

The name of the stadium will be the Las Vegas Ballpark and will be an open-air stadium with 10,000 seats.  The board debated for over 1 ½ hours to approve the money.

Rossi Ralenkotter, LVCVA president, said that keeping professional baseball in Las Vegas with a new training facility and stadium is a good move allowing Major League Baseball to consider Las Vegas as an expansion city.  If that scenario does happen there is a clause that enables the LVCVA to exit the deal if minor-league baseball is no longer played in the city.

Bottom Line – Sports in the Las Vegas Valley helps grow our economy – So far the Golden Knights, our new hockey team and first major league sports team has been a big draw and when the football league Raiders start playing in Las Vegas we will truly be a major league sports city.
