Raiders considering moving camp to Henderson, Nevada

The Raiders were supposed to move to Nevada after training camp. That, though, could come sooner than planned.

The team is “seriously considering” holding training camp at its new headquarters in Henderson, Nevada, rather than in Napa, California, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The Raiders’ new team facility is scheduled to be completed in early June.

The original plan called for the Raiders to conduct a minicamp at their current facility in Alameda, California, in June followed by training camp in Napa later in the summer. The COVID-19 pandemic, which has partially or completely closed NFL facilities since March, has led the Raiders to reconsider.

They now likely push up the timetable.

  1. Shouldn’t they be holding camp and team activities in their city to begin with? They left California for a reason. It’s kinda ridiculous to make a new city pay for the lions share of your new $2 billion dollar stadium only to continue to show love to the place that told you to kick rocks.

    Imagine if the Oilers decided to move to Tennessee but continued to hold their training camp in Southeast Texas.

  2. Like the Cowboys training in Thousand Oaks and now Oxnard (where the Raiders used to train)?

    Santa Rosa and Oxnard are like being in a refrigerator compared with Henderson.

    Also stupid.

    Many fans in DFW that can’t afford Cowboys tickets get irritated that the Cowboys go to California rather than train at their state of the art facility in Frisco, TX.

    Maybe training in California is what makes their oft-talented roster soft every year? 🤔

    Henderson is a brand new indoor facility, I’m pretty sure they have air conditioner
