LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada’s Board of Regents has approved a joint-use agreement that will allow the UNLV football team to use the $1.9 billion stadium planned for the Oakland Raiders when the NFL team moves to Las Vegas in 2020.
The board approved the measure Friday on an 11-1 vote.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports Regent Rick Trachok was the only one opposed.
He said he wanted greater assurance of UNLV’s financial commitment in the event it decides not to use the stadium because of the costs.
Trachok’s father, Dick, is a former athletic director at the University of Nevada, Reno.
The joint-use deal is expected to be reviewed by the Las Vegas Stadium Authority on Feb. 15 when it plans to consider an overall stadium development agreement.
