The Raiders are coming to Nevada. Nevada license plates with the Raiders logo on them arrived more than a year ago.

Via Mick Akers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the team already has raised more than $350,000 for its charitable foundation via Raiders licensed plates purchased in the state they will officially call home when their Las Vegas stadium opens later this year.

From early January 2019 through January 27, 2020, more than 12,000 Raiders plates were registered in Nevada. Of the $62 fee, $32 goes to Nevada and $30 flows to the Raiders Foundation, with no profit for the team.

“Mark Davis has said repeatedly that Nevada is getting more than a football team, they are getting an army that is committed to working in the community and assisting everywhere we can help make a difference,” Raiders President Marc Badain said, via Akers. “The Raider specialty license plate program is another example of that commitment.”

The Raiders till have some work to do in order to catch the hockey team that debuted in Las Vegas in 2017. The Golden Knights already have more than 43,000 license plates.

  1. Mark Davis has said repeatedly that Nevada is getting more than a football team, they are getting an army that is committed to working in the community and assisting everywhere we can help make a difference,”
    Yeah Mark, too bad you didn’t want to make a difference in Oakland…not exactly a garden spot.

  2. Oakland is a cesspool, the city had 20+ years to get a stadium for the Raiders, good riddance, Vegas baby!

  3. Vegas kicked in $750M on a new state of the art stadium. The city of Oakland built a 10,000 seat cheap expansion and called it Mt. Davis or some damn foolishness. Money talks. Oakland doesnt have it. Now they dont jave the Raiders, again.

  4. I saw my first Nevada Raider license plate while driving East on I-80 in Auburn, CA late one night. My my my… that plate is the BEST looking plate in all the United States. Attached to a Tesla, that license plate made me want to move to Nevada. Go Raiders.

  5. @ jimnaizeeum – you don’t research much do you. The Raiders bailed out the Oakland school district programs with a cash donation. Oakland wouldn’t even do that for their own citizens so Mark has tried to make a difference in Oakland, it’s the city gov that could care less.

  6. 1. The Raiders are contributing a largish portion of the money to build the stadium / palace. 750 mil is less than half the price. NFL (loan to Raiders – does anyone actually ever pay those back?) and Raiders pick up the rest.
    2. Las Vegas will actually own the stadium. The Raiders get a 30 year lease at $1 per year, get to sell their own concessions (I believe), get naming rights, and will have a Raiders Image store on site. They also have almost complete control over the stadium design.
    3. Under that deal, the Raiders will be in Las Vegas for a very long time.
