The price tag on the Raiders' $1.8-billion Las Vegas stadium has gone up $40 million to accommodate the addition of 20 new suites, Mick Akers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
The team increased the number of suites from 108 to 128 to improve its chances of landing the 2025 Super Bowl.
"The more suites you have, the better opportunity you have to bid for the Super Bowl," Raiders president Marc Badain said. "So we wanted to be responsive to the NFL, as we're working on a bid for the 2025 Super Bowl."
The Raiders will foot the bill for the added suites. The stadium is still anticipated to sit 65,000.
