Ultimate Sports Planning $4B Sports & Entertainment Complex

Developer Plans To Build $4B Sports
Resort Near Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Ultimate Sports Entertainment Inc. (USEI) unveiled plans to build a $4B sports-mega-resort complex on 116 acres of land near Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The facility will be designed by K.C.-based HOK Sports and will feature 5,500 rooms, ten sports arenas, 150,000-square-foot casino and a 750,000-square-foot convention center. The Perini Building Co. will manage construction. The project is based on a hybrid of casino, destination and sports business models. The name of the resort will be determined by a sports arena-style naming-rights deal. USEI has the support of the USOC, more than 25 NGBs and other sports organizations that are interested in holding regional and national competitions at the resort once it is completed (USEI). In Las Vegas, Mark Anderson notes the venues at the resort include 26,000- and 10,000-seat arenas, a 5,000-seat aquatic center, three 3,000-seat multi-use facilities, a golf driving range, a bowling alley and an ice rink. USEI President & CEO Matt Rose said that the group “plans to break ground in about nine months and that construction should be completed [24-30] months after that.” USEI has hired the Bonham Group for sports marketing (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 1/27).
