LAS VEGAS RAIDERS ($6.2 BILLION) The Raiders received $750 million from the State of Nevada during a 2016 Special Session of the Legislature to go toward the building of the $2 billion Allegiant Stadium. That contribution is being repaid via a 0.88 percent room tax on hotel rooms in Clark County. Between March 2017 when the tax was instituted and June 2023, the room tax has generated $285 million in revenue. With Las Vegas being a smaller market, support from visitors has played a big role in filling the stadium for all the events that occur at Allegiant Stadium.
