LAS VEGAS (AP) - Plans for a stadium on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus have moved a giant step closer to reality.
The Nevada Board of Regents unanimously voted Friday in favor of a campus master plan that includes the 60,000-seat stadium.
The action paves the way for UNLV and its private partner Majestic Realty Co. to move ahead with plans to build the stadium.
According to a study released Friday, the stadium could pump $393 million a year into the Las Vegas economy, and draw at least 15 new, major events to the city.
In addition to luring outside events such as an NFL exhibition game or the Electric Daisy Carnival, the stadium also would replace aging Sam Boyd Stadium as the site for UNLV football games.
