LAS VEGAS — Raider Nation has a new capital: Sin City.
At a special event in front of Allegiant Stadium on Wednesday, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak announced with Raiders owner Mark Davis the official renaming of the Oakland Raiders to the Las Vegas Raiders.
“The Raiders were born in Oakland and played 13 seasons in (Los Angeles),” Davis said. “Both cities will always be part of our DNA. But today we begin a new chapter in our storied history. For today — January 22, 2020 — we are now the Las Vegas Raiders.”
The crowd outside the stadium erupted in applause.
“And today,” Davis said, “Las Vegas officially becomes our nation’s capital.”
