LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — UNLV will kick off its football season at the Allegiant Stadium Thursday evening when it hosts Eastern Washington. The stadium will be open at full capacity and masks are required for all fans.

The last time UNLV Rebels were at the stadium, around 2,000 people watched the team play their rival UNR on Halloween 2020.

The rideshare lot is located just north of Allegiant Stadium. The RTC will also run a shuttle on game days for $4 roundtrip.

Coming up at Allegiant Stadium, there will be the inaugural Vegas Kickoff Classic between BYU and Arizona on Sept. 4. Then the Las Vegas Raiders season opener is Sept. 14 against Baltimore.
