Nov. 17 (UPI) -- The Oakland Raiders released a hype video this week, showing off their future stadium in Las Vegas.

Oakland posted the video to its social media accounts late Monday night.

"I had a dream that someday I would build the finest organization in all of professional sports," Al Davis says at the beginning of the 1:28 clip.

It also features John Madden, Marcus Allen and many more Raiders greats. The video later transitions to the current squad.

It cuts to a clip of the Raiders' new stadium in Las Vegas. The black and windowed facility looks very modern and has the Las Vegas skyline behind it.

It then cuts to a shot with a window open in Las Vegas Stadium, showing a glimpse inside. The packed house is vibrant and electric. A huge Raiders flame is also behind one of the end zones and giant big screen TVs are in the corners of the stands.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Raiders president Marc Badain and George Lopez all spoke at Monday's ceremony.

The Raiders posted several videos on the team's official website showing off more of the pricy facility.

The franchise had the groundbreaking for their new $1.9 billion stadium on Monday in Las Vegas. The stadium site is 62.5 acres at Russell and I-15. It is expected to be completed in the summer of 2020.

The Raiders are currently accepting $100 deposits for personal seat licenses at the new stadium. Oakland is committed to play the 2017 season at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
