Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium has begun a virtual recruitment drive to fill up to 2,200 new part-time game-day positions as the venue prepares to welcome fans for the first time later in the year.

The stadium has begun accepting applications through its virtual recruitment website, with the roles to be offered during the Las Vegas Raiders’ 2021 regular season. Roles will cover hospitality, food service, security, ticketing, customer service, custodial and other departments covering the Raiders’ nine home games at the 65,000-seat stadium.

The Raiders, Allegiant Stadium and partnering vendors will work closely with those who received job offers during last season’s virtual recruitment efforts to fill previously secured positions for the upcoming season.

Interested individuals should be available to work all Raiders home games as well as other sports and entertainment events held at Allegiant Stadium, including University of Las Vegas, Nevada football games. Hiring partners include the Raiders, Allegiant Stadium, Silver and Black Hospitality, The Raider Image, ASM Global, ABM, PATG and S.A.F.E Management.

Raiders president Marc Badain said: “We are excited to recruit a diverse and winning team to help make the experience at Allegiant Stadium the best it can be. These additional jobs will help support economic growth in our local community, while providing exciting and unique job opportunities for individuals with diverse experiences and backgrounds.”

Allegiant Stadium opened in September 2020 but the venue did not welcome fans for the entirety of last season due to ongoing restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Raiders made the decision to ensure fairness to personal seat license holders given the potential inequities associated with determining which fans could attend specific games.

Earlier this month, Allegiant Stadium was awarded hosting rights to this year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup final. The match will be held on August 1, with details about attendance and ticketing to be announced nearer the time.

With COVID-19 vaccination roll-out continuing across the US, there is growing optimism that the Raiders will be able to welcome a significant number of fans to Allegiant Stadium when the 2021 season gets underway in September.
