UNLV Hires Texas-Based CSL As Consultant For On-Campus Football Stadium Plan
The UNLV stadium BOD on Friday "unanimously selected" Texas-based CSL as a consultant for a possible new on-campus stadium, according to Alan Snel of the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL. The Legends Hospitality-owned company "will be paid a maximum of $325,000 for its consulting work." CSL will "guide the stadium board on issues such as whether an on-campus stadium should be domed; how many seats it should have; cost options for various stadium designs; local market trends and funding alternatives." The stadium BOD has until Sept. 30 "to submit a report to state lawmakers on the venue’s feasibility, scope and cost." CSL was "chosen over one other finalist," San Diego-based JMI Sports. BOD member and UFC Exec VP & Chief Legal Officer Kirk Hendrick said that CSL's prior work in Las Vegas "gave them a leg-up to hit the ground running." BOD Vice Chair Paul Chapmak said that CSL was "involved with a previous ill-fated UNLV stadium project called the mega events center" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 12/21).
