San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has been named as a founding partner of Allegiant Stadium after signing a new sponsorship agreement with both the stadium and the Oakland Raiders

The agreement, which will begin with the 2020 season, was celebrated at a private event in Las Vegas yesterday which was attended by members of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, San Manuel Executives, Raiders Executives, and Raiders Alumnus Leo Gray.

As well as being fully enclosed and climate controlled, the stadium will hold a capacity crowd of 65,000, will generate an economic benefit of $620 million annually and is set to create 6,000 permanent jobs in Southern Nevada.

“The popularity of the Raiders in Southern California is unmatched,” said Loren Gill, CEO of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. “Through this partnership we are thrilled to offer our guests more access to high quality sports and entertainment.”

“We are pleased to have San Manuel Casino as a founding partner of Allegiant Stadium” said Raiders President Marc Badain. “Together we remain aligned in our dedication to providing our fans with the best in-class experience.”

San Manuel currently supports nine other professional sports teams across the NFL, NHL, MLB and MLS including LAFC, LA Galaxy and the LA Dodgers.
