Raiders Negotiating 14,000 Parking Spaces Away From Vegas Stadium Site
Don’t accuse the Raiders of not making sacrifices to move to Las Vegas.
Sure, Mark Davis landed one of the sweetest stadium deals in the history of stadium deals, but there will be compromise as the Las Vegas Review-Journal is reporting the stadium site can only provide parking for 2,400 personal vehicles – with the quest continuing for another 14,000 parking spaces to be located away from the stadium site.
According to the Review-Journal, the Raiders are negotiating with parcel owners less than a mile north of the stadium site – an option that appears to be the best-case scenario at least in terms of distance from the stadium.
Once a location is found, the challenge for Davis will be to create a new variety of pre-game experience.
After all, it was Davis who said during negotiations with the city of Oakland, that pregame fanfare was “part of the gameday experience, and I just can’t give that up.”
$750 million in free public money later… maybe the Raiders’ owner is willing to bend just a little.
