The Oakland Raiders have signed a sponsorship deal with healthcare provider Intermountain Healthcare, which will gain the naming rights to the National Football League team’s new headquarters and practice facility in Henderson, Nevada.
Intermountain Healthcare will also become the official healthcare partner of the Raiders and a founding partner of the $2bn, 65,000-seat Allegiant Stadium, the team’s future venue in Las Vegas. Terms were not disclosed.
The Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center and team headquarters – which is due to open next June – include a three-story, 135,000-square-foot office area, along with a 150,000-square-foot field house that will house one-and-a-half indoor American football fields. There are three outdoor football fields and a 50,000-square-foot performance center.
Additionally, local government is anticipating 250 permanent jobs will be created to run team operations and it is expected that many Raiders players, coaches and staff will move near the new facility in Henderson.
The Raiders are scheduled to move from Oakland, California, to Las Vegas, Nevada, in the summer of 2020. But if there are delays to construction then the Raiders will play at the Oakland Coliseum for another season.
