Las Vegas to host 2020, 2021 Pac-12 Championship games
The Pac-12 conference announced Wednesday that Las Vegas will be the host of the conference’s 2020 and 2021 championship games.
With the Oakland Raiders scheduled to move to Vegas prior to the 2020-21 NFL season, their new home, Las Vegas Stadium, will be the venue for the two conference championships. The stadium will also serve as the home of UNLV football.
The conference’s current partnership has seen the championship game held at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, home of the San Francisco 49ers.
The previous four Pac-12 Championship games have been played there.
The stadium is projected to hold 65,000 fans for football while being expandable to 72,000. It is already scheduled to host the 2020 Las Vegas Bowl, which features a Pac-12 team pitted against a Big Ten or SEC team.
The host for championship games beyond 2021 has yet to be announced.
