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.

Exclamation RE: Raiders to Las Vegas--it's official.



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.

I'm no idiot as I know the NFL has more cache than the NHL but I wonder how the success of the Golden Knights in a relatively short time and starting from scratch plays into how Las Vegas sports fans will view the Raiders a relocated and very poorly performing franchise at the moment.

If the Raiders suck in Vegas, the Knights will be fine.

If the Raiders are ever a consistent playoff team, they'll soak up nearly all of the casual fan attention there.

Not necessarily. The seasons have only partial overlap.

Las Vegas metro population is over 2MM, and we know the Raiders are drawing a ton of season ticket buyers from California. The town can easily support two pro teams; moreso when you consider the tourist population and the type of tourists they bring in. My guess is that Vegas will be very much like Southern California (the source of a large portion of Las Vegas residents): If the Knights continue to win they'll draw well. If not, they'll suffer.

If the Vegas sports fans are more like those in California as far as fan support goes, and not more devoted like those in the midwest, then the right comparison with similar sized metro areas is Sacramento and Portland, which each have one "major" pro franchise.

If Vegas fans are more like midwesterners, then the similar-size comparison would be Pittsburgh or Cincinnati, which support at least two.

I think it's the former, but we'll find out soon enough.

More like a mini, even more transient Phoenix.

The Raiders are going to do very well in Vegas. There will be thousands of fans coming in from Southern California, along with fans from Northern California, and other parts of the country. Plus the fans in the Las Vegas area.

As for their performing poorly, they went 7-9 and had a nice rookie class. With $57 million in salary cap space and 5 picks in the first three rounds of the 2020 draft (which is being held in Las Vegas), they could be a lot better if they stay healthy.
