MGM Resorts International has become an Official Gaming Partner of the Las Vegas Raiders as part of a deal announced this week that sees the gaming operator named as a Founding Partner of the new Allegiant Stadium and Official Home of the Raiders pre and post-game party.
The partnership gives MGM Resorts access to prominent signage throughout the Allegiant Stadium year-round, including in-stadium branding and naming rights to the west VIP entry and drop off zone.
A key component of the deal involves a commitment from both organizations to collaborate on community outreach programs that will benefit Southern Nevada. Through these efforts, the Raiders and MGM Resorts will continue to give back to their community.
Other benefits include entitlement of the MGM Club at Allegiant Stadium, an ultra-exclusive experience with a full-service premium bar, luxury lounge and upgraded stadium seating for game-viewing. MGM will also provide exclusive fan experiences before and after Raiders home games throughout its portfolio of resorts.
MGM Resorts Chairman and CEO Jim Murren commented: “Las Vegas is becoming one of the top sports destinations in the world, and this partnership is a natural fit of culture and vision. Together, we look forward to creating unique and world-class entertainment experiences for our guests and Raiders fans.”
“The Raiders are thrilled to welcome MGM Resorts International as our newest Founding Partner,” said the team’s President Marc Badain. “MGM Resorts is an institution in the gaming and hospitality industry and the activations they have planned for Raider games and all events at Allegiant Stadium will bring their best in class expertise to the entertainment experience.”
Legends Global Partnerships represented the Raiders to secure the Founding Partnership with MGM Resorts as a part of their duties as the stadium’s official premium ticketing and sponsorship agency.
