Welcome to the old Silver Dome, the Sam Boyd Stadium.

The stadium was completed on October 23, 1971, at a cost of $3.5 million. Originally known as Las Vegas Stadium, the name was changed to Las Vegas Silver Bowl in 1978, Sam Boyd Silver Bowl in 1984 and Sam Boyd Stadium on April 26, 1994. With the construction of Allegiant Stadium, the days are numbered for this veritable event space.
