RE: Raiders to Las Vegas--it's official.
The new stadium will have a company's name on it.

From the official Raiders site:

Quote:The Raiders and Allegiant (NASDAQ: ALGT) today announced an agreement for the naming rights to Las Vegas Stadium, the under-construction future home of the Raiders and UNLV football.

“We’re thrilled that our future home will be known as Allegiant Stadium,” said Raiders President Marc Badain. “As the hometown airline, Allegiant is the perfect partner to showcase the incredible support we continue to receive from the Southern Nevada community. We are grateful to all involved who worked diligently to make Allegiant Stadium a reality.”

This partnership with the Raiders presents a global branding opportunity for the Las Vegas-based company as Allegiant will have its name showcased on the 1.75 million-square-foot, state-of-the-art domed stadium that will also host many world-class major sports and entertainment events.

Allegiant Stadium will also serve as site of the Las Vegas Bowl beginning in 2020, which will feature a Pac-12 football opponent versus either a Big Ten or SEC opponent, as well as the 2020 and 2021 Pac-12 Football Championship Game.

“This partnership is an incredibly exciting opportunity to join Las Vegas’ hometown airline with its new hometown NFL team,” said Maury Gallagher, Allegiant chairman and chief executive officer. “It will not only amplify our growing brand as the only U.S. airline focused on leisure travel and experiences, but will also provide access to NFL games and special opportunities for fans across the country. We are thrilled to be able to bring Raider Nation to its new capital—Las Vegas.”

No info on the length of the contract or how much the company is paying as of yet.

The Raiders held a topping ceremony in Las Vegas where the last beam to connect the last roof truss was hoisted into the stadium frame.

Trees are traditional at topping out ceremonies.
