Renderings for the Athletics’ proposed Las Vegas stadium are here, and they look incredible.
The A’s released initial renderings of the 30,000-seat stadium on the Las Vegas Strip on Friday afternoon, giving fans an idea of what their move from Oakland to Nevada would look like.
“We are excited to share our vision for the A’s potential new home,” A’s president Dave Kaval said in a statement. “As our first conceptual design, we will continue to refine the look and feel of the stadium over the next year.” We hope our project goes beyond the traditional stadium and serves as a catalyst for community development and engagement. It follows the footsteps and successes of professional sports teams ahead of us in creating union jobs, stimulating economic growth and encouraging community investment.”
The 30,000-seat stadium would have a partially retractable roof and home plate would face Las Vegas Boulevard. Balli’s Corporation plans to build a new 1,500-room hotel and casino across the street from the stadium on a 34-acre site that would be separate from the stadium.

The A’s struck a deal with Bali to build a $1.5 billion stadium earlier this month. It will be located at the current location of the Tropicana Las Vegas casino near the MGM Grand Hotel. A has reportedly reached a tentative agreement to receive up to $380 million in public funding for the project.
The A’s move from Oakland to Las Vegas is not yet official, although MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said the owners could vote on it as soon as they meet in New York next month. The A’s current lease at the Oakland Coliseum expires in 2024.
