MGM Resorts is just sweeping up the confetti from the grand opening celebration on opening events at its new T Mobile Arena when news comes that another new arena will be built this time by Las Vegas Sands. The new 17,500 seat arena if it goes ahead will be a total of 400,00 square foot in a space behind Las Vegas Sands,Venetian and Palazzo resorts. Arenas have been announced often over the years by different groups with often nothing happening but as this is by Las Vegas Sands who are teaming up with the Madison Square Garden Company it seems likely this arena will happen. The arena like the T Mobile Arena would be used for concerts, sports and events and as the Las Vegas Sands owned Sands Event Center is nearby most likely as convention and show space too. The arena will also feature private boxes as well as clubs and lounges and most likely be completed by the end of 2018.
