LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Confidence is in the air as Thursday's stadium authority board meeting commenced.

With reports this week stating the Raiders tapped Bank of America as a financial backer, the likelihood of an NFL stadium being built in Las Vegas is rising as well as the likelihood of the Silver and Black moving to the Valley. In addition, prospects for a move were also strengthened with reports of the league's relocation committee poised to recommend the Raiders' plans for Las Vegas.

Just this week, the Raiders reportedly informed the league that "B of A" would back the $650 million hole left behind by casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. The stadium's projected cost totals $1.9 billion.

The meeting comes as a final vote among NFL owners to OK the move could come as early as late this month.
