Since working with the Allegiant Stadium and the new Las Vegas Raiders, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has added another branch to its ever growing roster of sporting sponsorships.
Currently known as the Oakland Raiders, the franchise will relocate next year when the 65,000 $1.8bn domed stadium is finished, with the new home of the NFL team next to the Las Vegas Strip.
As part of the new partnership, San Manuel was designated as the Allegiant Stadium’s founding partner, becoming known in the process as the arena’s official Southern California casino.
In addition, the tribe has also become a Raiders sponsor starting from the 2020 season through its San Manuel Casino property.
On Monday San Manuel and the Raiders announced the new partnership at an event in Las Vegas, attended by members of the Mission Indians ‘ San Manuel Group, San Manuel executives, Raiders executives, and Raiders Alumnus Leo Gray.
Loren Gill, CEO of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians said: “The popularity of the Raiders in Southern California is unmatched. Through this partnership, we are thrilled to offer our guests more access to high-quality sports and entertainment.”
The Raiders are San Manuel’s first professional sports team, joining nine other professional sports teams across the NFL, NHL, MLB, and MLS.
Sides such as Los Angeles ‘ Dodgers, Lakers, Chargers, Galaxy, and fellow Las Vegas team the Golden Knights are among those alliances.
“We are pleased to have San Manuel Casino as a founding partner of Allegiant Stadium,” added Raiders president Marc Badain. “Together, we remain aligned in our dedication to providing our fans with the best-in-class experience.”
The San Manuel Casino offers 4,700 slots, Vegas-style blackjack and high-limit gaming along with a range of entertainment and food and drink options.
