The Raiders have an impressive new home in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Raiders managed to pull off a move from Oakland in 2020 even during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The big project was finishing Allegiant Stadium and construction was able to continue.
The team has been hyping up the new home on social media and finally released a finished product of the inside Friday on Twitter.
A brand new look for the Raiders
This is quite the upgrade for the franchise after playing at the Oakland Coliseum for so long. There is no infield dirt to be seen and there appears to be proper premium seating included as well.
Moving out of Oakland was upsetting for the fans in the Bay Area. While some may be mad at ownership for not building a new stadium in Oakland, it is easy to see why the team made the move given this new facility.
The only problem for the Raiders is the fact the stadium won’t be filled to capacity this season. Teams are still working out plans to have a reduced number of fans in attendance and it remains to be seen how that will be pulled off. Regardless, the hype will be real in 2021 as everyone wants to get inside and see the new digs.
The only thing left to do is put a product on the field worth viewing. The Raiders went 7-9 last year after a 6-4 start and Derek Carr’s future with the franchise is in question. The same goes for Jon Gruden’s ability to lead an NFL team to success in this modern era.
But it is all fun and excitement with the reveal of Allegiant Stadium. The organization made a real investment in the team after playing at a baseball stadium and it will hopefully pay off.
