The Las Vegas Raiders are set to debut in 2020 after completing their move from Oakland, and NFL fans in Sin City are starting to get a closer look at the team's new home, Allegiant Stadium.

Thomas Barrabi of Fox Business reported in January the stadium's total construction cost was $1.9 billion.

"Obviously this city, I expect it's going to be a Super Bowl city," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. "This stadium is obviously the jewel that will be part of that."

Las Vegas was also expected to host the 2020 NFL draft, which will take place April 23-25, but the league moved the event to a fully virtual format because of the coronavirus pandemic.
