The Games off the Field: The Sudden Sports Business in Las Vegas

Las Vegas may be a newcomer to professional sports franchises, but our city jumped in with both feet when it added four professional sports franchises to its roster, joining the 51s minor league baseball and UNLV's NCAA Division 1 squads. Suddenly, we have many more games, a new arena, two stadiums, over 250 pro athletes, coaches, and staffers, plus additional media, hype, tax revenue, and exposure for our city. There is a lot going on away from the ice, the court, the pitch, and the $1.9 billion stadium. How did this happen? How will the addition of new teams affect dynamics in our city? What does it take to build a new franchise? Is this what the majority of people really wanted? Can a market this size - with all its uniqueness - sustain so many teams/events? What's going to happen when the Raiders arrive? Examine the business framework behind our new and old teams, and look at the inner workings. You will get to know who the local sports business players are. We will also discuss the big stories on the national sports business scene.
