The A's have reportedly made a new plan to move to Vegas that requires $400 million instead of $500 million in public funds

Nevada Independent:

The Oakland A’s and Bally’s Corp. have an agreement in place for the team to build a $1.5 billion stadium on a portion of the Tropicana Las Vegas site, a move expected to reduce the amount of public financing sought for the project to $395 million.


The deal would undo the A’s “binding agreement” announced three weeks ago with Red Rock Resorts for 49 acres on the west side of Interstate 15 at Tropicana and Dean Martin Drive where the team had wanted to build the stadium.

The A’s had planned to build an entertainment district around the stadium with restaurants, retail and other entertainment offerings, but that is no longer part of the project.
