The MGM Resorts International Company which was founded thirty-four years ago has announced the signing of a business deal that will see the company become the official partner for the National Football League’s Las Vegas Raiders franchise. The Las Vegas, Nevada-based company used its official press release from several days ago to detail that the business agreement will involve the company acting as a founding business partner of the Las Vegas Raiders team’s Allegiant Stadium which is currently under construction.
The company’s officials also stated that this part of the business alliance between the two parties will also give it a variety of valuable signage opportunities such as interior branding opportunities alongside naming rights for one of the venue’s drop-offs and VIP entry zones. Allegiant Stadium located in Nevada will serve as the Las Vegas Raiders team and the UNLV Rebels college football team stadium.
It is located on around sixty-two acres of land situated at Hacienda Bay and Russell Roads and between Dean Martin Drive and Polaris Avenue. Construction of this $1.8 billion-worth stadium started back on the 18th of September 2017 and it is expected to be finished in July of this year just in time for new football season. Allegiant Stadium that will host the yearly Las Vegas Bowl will be the replacement for Sam Boyd Stadium.
Inauguration of the MGM Club at Allegiant Stadium
As revealed by MGM Resorts International’s official, the latest company’s business agreement with Las Vegas Raiders will also see the company inaugurate its iconic MGM Club at the stadium lounge with the 65,000-seat included property. This area of the stadium will offer all VIP customers luxury, upgraded stadium seating for all games which will be held here as well as access to a premium service bar area.
Commenting on the news, MGM Resorts International Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Jim Murren used one of his official press releases to say that his company will also work alongside Las Vegas Raiders on a series of outreach programs that will doubtlessly benefit this area. He also added that these outreach programs will be created to help both his company and Las Vegas Raiders to give back to the entire community.
According to Jim Murren, MGM Resorts International could not be more excited to finally introduce professional football to the community. In addition to being the capital of gambling, Las Vegas is also turning into one of the major sports destinations globally and the partnership between the gambling operator and the NFL franchise appears as a natural fit of vision and culture.
The Las Vegas Raiders NFL Franchise
Previously headquartered in the city of Oakland in northern California, the Las Vegas Raiders franchise relocated to the state of Nevada back in 2017. As reported, the team will start playing all of their home games at the new stadium from September. Commenting on the new business alliance, Marc Badain who is the President of the franchise said that he was delighted to embrace one of the most prominent companies in the entertainment and hospitality industry as his franchise’s latest funding partner.
His official statement reads that the MGM Resorts International company is a leading institution in both the hospitality and the gaming industry and that the company’s work done at Allegiant Stadium will most certainly bring the best, premium in-class expertise to the expected entertainment experience. According to the Las Vegas Journal news outlet, the new alliance will also involve MGM Resorts International holding both post and pre-game events within its Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino which is located only several hundred yards from Allegiant Stadium.
