The Raiders Are Officially THE LAS VEGAS RAIDERS
By St. John on January 22, 2020
” I DO HEREBY PROCLAIM JANUARY 22ND 2020 AS THE DAY TO CELEBRATE THE RENAMING OF LAS VEGAS RAIDERS”
With those words Nevada Governor Sisolak along with Raiders’ owner Mark Davis made the renaming official at a ceremony held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. This marks the 3rd time the Raiders have relocated but for the first time outside of California. Alot of mixed emotions have been coming from the Bay Area since early this month when they began renaming their social platforms that now all read “Las Vegas Raiders”.
Check out some of the highlights from the announcement today below:

The Las Vegas Raiders also announced that they plan to help Nevada Schools that are participating in National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs with eliminating their current meal debt.
“Today, we want to make a donation to the Nevada Department of Agriculture meal service program, which feeds kids lunch and breakfast at the schools. We are hoping to eliminate the debt that the entire state of Nevada has to do that project, and in that regard we are donating $500,000 to the program”
The first order of business for the Las Vegas Raiders?
