Las Vegas, Raiders strike a lease deal

Las Vegas. The public entity that oversees the proposed stadium where the Raiders want to start playing in 2020 has approve

Via ESPN.com, the Las Vegas Stadium Authority unanimously approved on Thursday a lease agreement.

The Raiders want construction to start in the next few months on the $1.9 billion, 65,000-seat domed stadium near the Las Vegas Strip that will become their new home. The team hasn't decided where it will play in 2019, although owner Marc Davis has said he doesn't want to play at UNLV's Sam Boyd Stadium, which seats only 35,500. A special meeting is set to vote on the lease agreement for the stadium.

It was important to get the approval this week because Raiders president Marc Badain had said recently that appearing at the National Football League owners meetings, which begin Monday in Chicago, without a lease could delay the team's move to Las Vegas by a year.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, the approved lease "offers the Raiders and their designated events company more confidentiality for their financial information during required audits".

The agreement also gives the team the right to name the stadium and prohibits any type of gambling in the premises.

An interesting sidelight to the lease, according to the Sun: Gaming was listed as being a prohibited use for the stadium, "going so far as to list specific card games that can not be conducted at the facility".

The Raiders are still a part of Oakland for now, but they're putting the wheels in motion for their move to Las Vegas.
