The A’s unveil images of their future stadium in Las Vegas

(Las Vegas) The Oakland Athletics and their design team released images Tuesday of the US$1.5 billion stadium they plan to build in Las Vegas, whose concept resembles that of the famous Sydney Opera House.

The A’s hope to move into the 33,000-seat indoor stadium in 2028, depending on the construction schedule. A window in the outfield allows light to enter the stadium and offers a view of the famous Las Vegas Strip.

A giant 18,000 square foot screen is also included, which would make it the largest in Major League Baseball.

The architectural firms Bjarke Ingels Group and HNTB are responsible for the design.


The stadium will be built on a site at the corner of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard. The Tropicana complex which currently occupies this site will be demolished to make way for the stadium and a hotel. Of the expected $1.5 billion bill, $380 million will be paid with taxpayer money thanks to a decision by the Nevada government.

The stadium capacity will be the smallest across Major League Baseball. However, the Tampa Bay Rays plan to build a 30,000-seat stadium near the current site of Tropicana Field.


Major League Baseball team owners unanimously approved the A’s’ relocation request last November. However, there are still certain obstacles to overcome before their departure.

The A’s will play in Oakland this season, but no announcement has been made regarding the site of their home games beginning in 2025. They recently met with city officials about hosting games beyond the 2024 season.

They could play temporarily in the home of the San Francisco Giants or move briefly to Salt Lake City or Sacramento before ending up in Las Vegas.
