There’s still nearly a year before the Raiders officially begin playing in Las Vegas. Right now, however, many companies are working to gain sponsorship deals with the new team. In October, for example, the Raiders agreed to a deal with a California-based tribal casino operator.
Over the summer, the Las Vegas-based airline Allegiant secured a major partnership with the Raiders.
This airline company has been granted permission to put its name on the Raiders’ new $2 billion, 65,000 seat stadium. It’s being called ‘Allegiant Stadium,’ giving the company major exposure to football fans around the country. This week, the Raiders agreed to another major partnership.
M Resort was named the “Official Raiders Team Headquarters Hotel.” Moving forward, this will be the Raiders’ meeting place the night before major games. Specific terms of this deal have not been revealed.
Just a day after this reveal, officials within M Resort announced that a Las Vegas Raiders Bar & Grill was set to open. This bar and restaurant will be opening as part of the resort’s new role as the Official Team Headquarters.
According to Hussain Mahrous, general manager of M Resort, this bar will be open 24/7 and will be one of the premier places to watch sports in the hotel.
On that note, a survey undertaken by alcohol.org identified the NFL fan base that consume the most alcohol: the Raiders.
