It is official, the silver and black are now heading to Las Vegas. Raiders owners Mark Davis signed the documents which will request to relocate the Raiders from Oakland to Las Vegas! Even though its is not a surprise, the news is shocking because the Raiders did have a very strong season. The season did not go as planned however. The Raiders were eliminated in the first round after their quarterback Carr became injured in the previous game and could not play.
Once the Raiders arrive, they will join the Golden Knights as the second professional team in Las Vegas. This is great news for locals and the casinos as two professional sports teams in Las Vegas is bringing many new fans to the city as well as more business. Lastly, this will be a long farewell as the Raiders will continue to play in Oakland until the Stadium is complete. The earliest we might see the Raiders move will be in 2020. This is assuming that construction of the stadium and highways will be complete and ready to handle the masses of people who will attend the games.
