Cox Communications partners with Raiders for Las Vegas Stadium

The Oakland Raiders may be struggling to find a home for the 2019 season but the NFL team are moving forward with commercial partnerships for their new stadium in Las Vegas.

Cox Communications, the telecommunications firm, will become a Founding Partner and Official WiFi and Internet Provider of the $1.8bn (€1.6bn) venue, which is scheduled to open in 2020. Financial details were not disclosed.

As part of the 10-year deal, the company will provide multiple gig-speed bandwidth to both fans and staff. Cox will also power interactive technology activations during every home game and be the Official Video Television Provider of Las Vegas Stadium.

Cox will also participate in community events and sponsor the state-of-the-art media studio at the Raiders practice facility in Henderson, Nevada.

“With a rich history of powering the largest stadiums, hotels and convention centres – many right here in Las Vegas – we’re excited to work with Cox on the next evolution of the connected fan experience,” said Raiders president Marc Badain.
