The Oakland Raiders' move to Las Vegas in time for the 2020 National Football League season takes another step in that direction with today's groundbreaking ceremony for the planned 65,000-seat, $1.9 billion domed stadium near the Las Vegas Strip.

Former Raiders players and at least three National Football League team owners are expected to attend the groundbreaking.

The Raiders have hired Minneapolis-based Mortenson Construction and Henderson's McCarthy Building general contractors.

Crews will begin preparing the land on Monday.

According to KLAS-TV, work on the stadium will be limited until the team finalizes an agreement with the Las Vegas Stadium Authority and Clark County.

The Laborers Union Local 872 is getting ready for the groundbreaking ceremony at the site that will soon house the Raiders stadium.
