The Super Bowl is officially coming to Las Vegas.

Raiders owner Mark Davis announced Wednesday morning that Super Bowl LVIII is set to happen at Allegiant Stadium, Feb. 11, 2024.

“The Raiders Are Thrilled The National Football League has selected Las Vegas To host Super Bowl LVIII In 2024,” Davis said in a press statement. “Hosting the 2022 Pro Bowl, the 2022 NFL Draft, and Now The 2024 Super Bowl Are just some of the Ancillary Benefits Resulting from the public-private partnership we created with the state of Nevada to bring The Raiders to Las Vegas and build Allegiant Stadium. It’s Only The Beginning.”

The announcement to bring the Big Game to Allegiant Stadium marks the first time Las Vegas and the state of Nevada will welcome the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl LVII was originally set for New Orleans, but since the game was pushed back because of the NFL’s new 17-game regular-season schedule, city officials decided to back out due to a conflict with New Orleans’ Mardi Gras celebrations.

Las Vegas is known as a popular tourist destination for Super Bowl celebrations but is expected to have an economic impact of $500 million, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

“Being named a Super Bowl host city is a defining moment in the history of Las Vegas,” said Steve Hill, CEO, and president of the LVCVA. “An event of this magnitude combined with the energy of Las Vegas is going to be unmatched. Our entire city is committed to making Super Bowl LVIII the most electrifying sports spectacle ever. The NFL has been an incredible partner, and we look forward to working with their team, the Host Committee, and our partners across our destination to showcase Las Vegas as ‘The Greatest Arena on Earth’.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and Las Vegas Raiders were invited by the National Football League to collaborate on a bid to host Super Bowl LVIII. After a nearly one-year process, the bid was presented to and approved by the 32 clubs in Dallas Wednesday.

Las Vegas will celebrate the momentous announcement with a marquee takeover at 5 pm PST on Wednesday, with marquees along the Las Vegas Strip, the Fremont Street Experience, and throughout the destination will participate in the celebration.
