'The city’s first football season with fans in the stands is a monumental moment,' said Chuck Bowling, president and COO of Mandalay Bay and Luxor.

“We’ve created a game day event that embodies the spirit and excitement of Las Vegas and offers fans unique pre-game experiences. We look forward to creating new traditions at this venue for this season and beyond.”

Game day in Las Vegas is getting kicked up a notch this football season. It’s called Bud Light Beer Garden and it is a gift to football fans from MGM Resorts and Bud Light. Under the new venture, fans of the pigskin will be able to enjoy interactive football challenges, a live DJ, betting along with eats and drinks from some of the strip’s tastiest restaurants.


The 130,000 square feet of space is free to enter before the game and is also open post game for even more entertainment. There are options for a more swanky setup. There are sports-betting suites courtesy of BetMGM, VIP experiences with VIP clubhouses and two-level suites, plus all-you-can eat and drink packages starting at $99. 

All this, plus each week there are special appearances by sporting legends. Former Super Bowl Champ Marshawn Lynch was the first  to take the ball and run with fans when the Raiders kicked off their first preseason game back in mid August at the Bud Light Beer Garden.


These one-of-a- kind experiences will be open on Raiders and UNLV  home games and other select dates held at Allegiant Stadium.
