NFL Not Considering Las Vegas Super Bowl Yet, Price Gouging Concerns | Oakland News Now

As the one who formed Oakland’s only bid to host the Super Bowl, and for Super Bowl 39 in 2005, I asked my source how the NFL would deal with the problem of price gouging. Nose bleed increases in Las Vegas Strip hotel prices, and the resort fee that tops $40 a day at some properties, plus parking fees, and charging for offerings that were once free for gamblers, like drinks, have contributed to a fall in Las Vegas Visitors totals for two of the last three years, and this year the growth was just over two percent.

My source said “We know that’s a problem and we are trying to figure out how to deal with it.” Something else of concern to the league is if Las Vegas really does want to host the Super Bowl? Reports with hoteliers saying that Las Vegas has so much going on that it doesn’t need the Super Bowl have got the NFL’s attention, and not in a good way.

That’s price gouging problem will also come up with next year’s NFL Draft in Las Vegas, unless the league works with Vegas officials to determine a way to solve the problem. The problem, however, will not cause a shift in venue: Las Vegas will host the 2020 NFL Draft.
