If a team plays a full season in an empty stadium in Las Vegas, did it really happen?
The National Football League’s Raiders brought their iconic 60-year-old brand to their new home stadium in Vegas last year. But Covid-19 didn’t care.
After declaring their move from Oakland in 2017, the Raiders played their inaugural Vegas season in front of empty seats at the $1.9 billion Allegiant Stadium in 2020. As players prepare for their first season in front of Vegas fans, the Raiders’ marketing efforts serve as a reminder that no new organization —homegrown or transplanted—is owed a fan base.
