MGM Resorts, which operates a number of destination resorts including the Bellagio in Las Vegas, has unveiled high-end prices for its packages for the upcoming Las Vegas Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Scheduled for November 16-18, the inaugural Las Vegas GP has made headlines with its high ticket prices. 

MGM Resorts has unveiled a $11,247 (£9,000/€10,000) package called the ‘Bellagio Fountain Club’ which will be set above the Las Vegas Strip Circuit. This will include a three-day ticket and premier hospitality seating, as well as meet and greets with F1 ambassadors and an all-inclusive unlimited curated menu. 

If F1 fans would like to get their hands on the package, they will also need to purchase a hotel room at a participating hotel – which includes the Bellagio (pictured), Mandalay Bay and more. 

While the Formula 1 Paddock Club – which includes a five-day ticket – has sold out, fans still have access to the slightly cheaper option, the PG1 Main Grandstand (East Harmon Zone). This package will include a four-day ticket, with an assigned grandstand seat, as well as complimentary food, water and soft drinks, and access to the opening ceremony. Not only this, but access to the Heineken Silver Stage, which will feature entertainment throughout the weekend, driver interviews, autograph sessions and more. 

The PG1 Main Grandstand package will also require a hotel stay to be bought alongside it, and will set fans back $2,827 per person. 

Las Vegas’ opening ceremony will take place on Wednesday November 15, with performances from the likes of J Balvin, Journey, Keith Urban, Steve Aoki, Thirty Seconds to Mars and more. All 20 F1 drivers on the grid will also be in attendance, with some 30,000 fans expected to be in attendance.
