A possible venue for an NBA team in Las Vegas is finally going to be built, as Jackie Robinson plans to break ground on All Net Arena in October.
All Net Arena was supposed to be built back in 2014. But after an intial groundbreaking ceremony, nothing happened.
Now seven years later, Jackie Robinson told 8 News Now, that All Net Arena is coming.
“We’re launching because we’re prepared,” Robinson said. “We’re in the right spot to move forward.”
All Net Arena could be the future home to an NBA team in Vegas. If the league decides to expand (or relocate) to Vegas, Robinson’s new arena should be capable of hosting an NBA team.
As will T-Mobile Arena. Which highlights one of the issues that will have to be resolved for Vegas to land an NBA team. Where will the team play?
And will the future NBA owner have to own the arena to appease the NBA?
But more importantly, we have new arena renderings!
That appears to be a sun roof on a basketball arena. And a thirty year old scoreboard.
The proposed 20,000 seat arena will be located off Las Vegas Boulevard just south of Sahara Avenue. Beyond the arena, Robinson plans to build two hotels and retail space.
