LAS VEGAS–Super Bowl LVIII is coming to Las Vegas. The National Football League made the announcement Wednesday.

The Las Vegas Raiders and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority together worked to bring the championship to the city. The game will be played Feb. 11, 2024 at Allegiant Stadium.

Raiders owner Mark Davis spoke during the announcement and thanked a laundry list of people and organizations, including his 31 other partners, former gaming CEO Steve Wynn, the late Sheldon Adelson, former Gov. Brian Sandoval and current Gov. Steve Sisolak.

“It’s a big day for the Raiders. It’s a big day for the city of Las Vegas,” Davis said.

Gov. Steve Sisolak issued a statement following the announcement.

“No city is as well prepared to welcome football fans from around the world as Las Vegas, and over the next two years, it will help create awareness and excitement about Las Vegas and the entire state,” Gov. Sisolak said.

In a nod to his continued focus on economic recovery and growth in the state, Sisolak added that the decision would help to bring thousands of full- and part-time jobs to the state, along with millions of dollars in tax revenues.
