San Manuel Casino to sponsor Raiders’ new Las Vegas stadium
The California-based San Manuel Band of Mission Indians will sponsor the Las Vegas’s Allegiant Stadium, as well as the Raiders NFL franchise, after the team’s 2020 move from Oakland to the city.
The band will also be designated as a ‘founding partner’ of Allegiant Stadium, which will host the Raiders from 2020 and is currently home to the University of Nevada at Las Vegas’s (UNLV) college football team.
“We are pleased to have San Manuel Casino as a founding partner of Allegiant Stadium” Badain said. “Together we remain aligned in our dedication to providing our fans with the best in-class experience.”
The band operates San Manuel Casino in Highland, California and Loren Gill, chief executive of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, said the Raiders’ popularity in Southern California would ensure the deal would be a success for the band.
