Caesars feels at home with Las Vegas Stadium partnership

Nevada-based Caesars Entertainment has signed as the first Founding Partner of the Las Vegas Stadium, the future home of the Las Vegas Raiders NFL franchise.

The Raiders are expected to make the move from Oakland, California to the 65,000-seat stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada in time for the 2020 NFL season.

Under the 15-year deal, Caesars Entertainment will host a branded stadium entrance and drop off zone, digital signage, media, radio and print assets, in addition to alumni, player and cheerleader appearances.

Select Caesars customers and Total Rewards members will be offered tickets to home games and most stadium events, and access exclusive experiences, including:

  • Caesars-branded Owners Suite at the 50-yard line
  • VIP dinners on the field
  • Training facility events
  • Fantasy camp participation
  • Stadium tours

The partnership with the Raiders follows the company’s recent announcement with the Baltimore Ravens.

The NFL gave the green light to casino partnerships in September.

This week, Caesars also signed partnership deals with the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and the NHL’s New Jersey Devils.
