Signs Include Monumental Exterior, Interior Directional Signage
YESCO, the 101-year-old company known for creating, repairing and maintaining internationally recognizable signs, is a proud partner of the Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium. When Allegiant Stadium opens on Aug. 14 for the Las Vegas Raiders’ first home game of 2021, YESCO will welcome fans with nearly 4,000 signs including all stadium naming signage, pylon signs and interior and exterior directional signs to enable guests to navigate the new stadium.
“As a proud partner of the Raiders and a valued building partner of Allegiant Stadium, we are excited for fans to enjoy the 2021 season in the stadium,” said Jeff Young, executive vice president, YESCO. “It’s enormously gratifying to be such a visible part of Las Vegas’ newest landmark structure.”
Encompassing approximately 50,000-man hours of work, the project included the installation of notable exterior signage such as the two rooftop signs spanning an impressive 564 feet each for a combined total of 115,056 square feet and comprising nearly two miles of outline lighting. Other signs, such as the stadium’s freestanding pylon sign, measures 124 feet in height and 44 feet in width, with the electronics portion measuring 80-by-36 feet.
To accentuate the dramatic architecture of the stadium, YESCO installed white light ribbons comprising one-and-a-half total miles of light band.
