Hey, the billionaire boys club has to have a place to play too. And why shouldn't the peons pay for it? It's just other peoples money anyway. And besides, it's going to make Las Vegas "huge"!

It's all about management. These guys here should study Jerry Jones.

Right. Just more poverty jobs picking up trash and serving the rich folks from California.

Seems like with all the universities and such in the southern CA area there would be plenty of various ball fields, and tracks and pools to cover all the action.

I can only think of two venues in so cal that could handle Olympic or world cup soccer. LV would be the next closest town.

There are multiple stadiums in SoCal that could work for Olympic soccer but the only ones announced as of now are:

Rams Stadium will host the men's final and other games
The Rose Bowl will host the women's final and other games
Banc of CA Stadium will host multiple games

The Coliseum and Stub Hub Center will be used for other events so no soccer there.

The three facilities named above will be able to handle the games over the course of two weeks without an issue - it's only 32 games.

Hard to imagine California shipping Olympic revenue/profit to another state.

My point being that they'll find a way to keep the games, all of the Olympic games, in SoCal, what with all the stadiums and universities.
