After years of talk, the Raiders should finally be moving to Las Vegas for the 2020 NFL season. It’s not the first time the team has left Oakland, but this time, it feels like it will be the last. With the bright lights of Vegas on the horizon, things are about to change for Raider Nation. The Oakland Coliseum, though a legendary structure, is largely considered one of the worst sports venues around.
Mark Davis and the NFL have invested heavily in the Las Vegas stadium to ensure that it becomes one of the hottest tickets in town. While the team is saying goodbye to the Bay Area, the team will never forget its roots.
“There’s no question about it,” Davis said to NBC Sports. “The Raiders and Oakland grew up together. We were the stepchild of San Francisco. We were just Oakland. And I believe my dad took special pride in that and in building it up.
“The Raiders were born in Oakland, and Oakland will always be part of our DNA. There’s no doubt about that.”
There will always be unease for the team and a fan base when a franchise like the Raiders move. Below we’re going to go through everything that you need to know about the team’s new stadium in Las Vegas.
