If you buy UNLV football season tickets in 2019 for the final season at Sam Boyd Stadium, you can get a similar seat at the new Las Vegas Stadium in 2020 for the same price. Season prices start at $99 for the six-game schedule.
UNLV officials are labeling the promotion, “The Faithful Fan Price.” The Rebels — and the NFL’s Raiders, of course — will begin play in 2020 at the new $1.8 billion stadium near I-15 and Russell Road.
“Faithful Fan Price is our way of showing appreciation for the loyalty and support that we have received over the years from our dedicated fans,” UNLV Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois said in a statement. “It also allows interested community members that are not currently season ticket holders to join the UNLV football family. When we conducted our initial Las Vegas Stadium fan surveys, price was of considerable concern and we heard the feedback.”
UNLV officials this summer are expected to announce ticket prices for the new stadium. That rate, which will be partially determined by fan feedback from surveys, would be paid by those who weren’t season ticket holders in 2019.
Current season ticket holders who are also members of the Rebel Athletic Fund — memberships begin at $25 — will have first pick at seats in the new stadium.
The university asks VIP club and suit holders to contact Blair DeBord with the Rebel Athletic Fund (702) 895-1237 for the premium pricing structure.
“Our goal for the Las Vegas Stadium transition is to be as transparent and simple as possible,” Reed-Francois said. “We want to galvanize our Las Vegas community as we ask for support in 2019, 2020 and beyond.”
