On the heels of the Oakland Raiders officially becoming the Las Vegas Raiders, the NFL team has announced that MGM Resorts International will become an official gaming partner, a founding partner of Allegiant Stadium and an official home of the team’s pre- and post-game party.
Under terms of the deal, MGM Resorts will have prominent year-round signage throughout the new stadium, including in-stadium branding and naming rights to the west VIP entry and drop off zone. The company will also see its name on the MGM Club at Allegiant Stadium, billed as an “ultra-exclusive experience” with a full-service premium bar, luxury lounge and upgraded stadium seating for game-viewing. MGM Resorts will also provide exclusive fan experiences before and after Raiders home games.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with the Raiders and to welcome professional football to Las Vegas,” said MGM Resorts Chairman and CEO Jim Murren. “Las Vegas is becoming one of the top sports destinations in the world, and this partnership is a natural fit of culture and vision. Together, we look forward to creating unique and world-class entertainment experiences for our guests and Raiders fans.”
“The Raiders are thrilled to welcome MGM Resorts International as our newest Founding Partner,” said Raiders President Marc Badain. “MGM Resorts is an institution in the gaming and hospitality industry and the activations they have planned for Raider games and all events at Allegiant Stadium will bring their best in class expertise to the entertainment experience.”
