Raiders Owner Mark Davis To Meet With Las Vegas Officials Over Potential Move
- Updated: January 29, 2016
Las Vegas Sands chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson wants to build a $1 billion domed stadium on the UNLV campus and is meeting with the owner of the Oakland Raiders to woo a potential relocation, company officials confirmed Thursday.
The Sands Corp. announced that it was lending its support behind a public-private partnership to build a 65,000-seat, domed stadium on a vacant 42 acres of land recently purchased by UNLV near the corner of Tropicana Avenue and Koval Lane across from McCarran International Airport. Adelson has scheduled a Friday meeting in Las Vegas with Raiders owner Mark Davis.
“In typical Raider fashion,” Davis said in a phone interview in regards to the report, “I can neither confirm nor deny.”
It is expected that the Raiders will play at least the 2016 season in Oakland. They also have been linked to San Diego, should the Chargers go to Los Angeles, well as to San Antonio.
The NFL has had a hard line against Las Vegas, and it is hard to see the league signing off on allowing a team to relocate to the gambling capital of the country. The NFL did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
