2020 will be the inaugural season of the Las Vegas Raiders. After spending decades in California, the Silver and Black now have a new home at the end of the famed Las Vegas strip and it seems like everyone outside of Oakland is excited about it.
A full four months before the projected start of the NFL season, the Raiders have already completely sold out of tickets for each of their eight home games at Allegiant Stadium. Their new digs, which have been compared to the "death star" look to be quite an impressive stadium, filled with the most up-to-date technology and amenities, not to mention, walking distance from all the major Las Vegas casinos.
It certainly doesn't hurt that Las Vegas' new stadium will see some premier teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs visit them this season either. When you add in the benefits of making a visiting fan's trip into a Vegas party weekend, selling out these tickets, despite all the hype around a new pro team in the area, makes a whole lot more sense.
Regardless of how the Raiders play in their first season in Las Vegas, one thing is clear, they'll do it in front of a packed house (as long as social distancing rules allow it by then).
