Two sites near the Las Vegas Strip have pioneered where the Oakland Athletics could potentially build a baseball stadium in southern Nevada.
A’s president Dave Kaval said Tuesday that one is a site the team would buy outright, while the A’s would likely partner with an existing resort operator at the other site. He did not confirm the location of any of the five sites still in play.
“It comes down to a partnership that feels more like a joint venture and a partnership where we’re more on our own, like the Raiders’ approach,” Kaval told the Review-Journal on Tuesday. “We try to balance the pros and cons of these and come up with something that could be advertised. But we want to be thoughtful, because there are a lot of complicated negotiations with something like this and we want to make sure that we respect the time, the intentions and the negotiations with all parties.
Kaval, who was in Las Vegas last week, also noted that the team has renderings of what a billion-dollar domed stadium looks like at each of the five sites still in play, for the help in their decision-making process.
