MGM Resorts offers customers view of F1, for a price

MGM Resorts has announced it will build an exclusive live viewing experience for the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix, which involves offering the chance to watch the race from the grandstands next to the Bellagio.

The package options to see the race from the grandstands currently come in two options; one is the Bellagio Grandstands, which offers seats overlooking the track. Second, is the Paddock Grandstands, which offers customers a view of the start/finish line and a look behind the scenes of the pit lane.

At the time of writing, the only way to ensure a seat in the stands is by purchasing access from MGM’s race-and-stay packages. Meanwhile, prices for standard rooms overlooking the Las Vegas strip at the Bellagio for three nights with Bellagio Grandstand tickets to the events are on sale for $5,455. 

Steve Zanella, MGM Resorts' CCO, said of the promotion: "In just over a year, F1® fans from around the globe will see how Las Vegas throws a party. In addition to the Bellagio Grandstands, which will set new standards for event viewing, we will create a round-the-clock celebration worthy of this international spectacular."

Meanwhile, MGM recently confirmed that its acquisition of LeoVegas had received all relevant approvals.

The US company commenced a public tender offer to acquire all LeoVegas shares in May for SEK 61 ($5.73) per share. However, the success of MGM Resorts’ bid was subject to certain conditions.

These included the receipt of “regulatory, governmental or similar clearances, approvals and decisions,” a hurdle which the company has now cleared.
