LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Fans won't be allowed into Allegiant Stadium this season because of the coronavirus pandemic, but once they are they'll be a part of a first-of-its-kind experience.

Allegiant Stadium will be the first venue in American pro sports to open as a cashless venue. Cash will not be accepted as a form of payment at any stadium-controlled parking location or within Allegiant Stadium.

According to a Raiders news release, cashless transactions are expected to significantly increase speed of service, meaning shorter lines, getting fans back to their seats faster. A survey of our PSL Holders also showed that our fans overwhelmingly agree, as a huge majority prefer cashless payment options.

The team says the decision is also in line with recent guidance from the Center for Disease Control, and Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak's leadership in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, through both his Medical Advisory Team and emergency directive urging businesses to adopt contactless payment systems. 

Fans can pay for items using valid debit or credit cards, or mobile wallets including Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay.

For fans who only bring cash to the stadium, the Raiders will have several cash-to-card kiosks positioned throughout the stadium where fans can exchange cash for a pre-paid card that can be used both inside and outside the stadium.
