Allegiant Stadium will soon echo with chants of Raider Nation! So, if you haven’t gotten game tickets yet, get a move on. It’s going to be an exciting Raiders’ football season at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium, which was just selected by NFL fans as the nation’s top stadium for the gameday experience.
The Las Vegas Raiders – under first-year head coach Josh McDaniels – will play their first preseason game on August 4 when they meet the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. The team’s first home game at Allegiant Stadium against the Minnesota Vikings is on August 14. The Raiders first regular season home game is September 18 when the Silver and Black meet the Arizona Cardinals.
A lot has happened since last season, including the addition of receiver Davante Adams, considered the best receiver in the NFL. The team also hired a new head coach, Josh McDaniels, one of the game’s most accomplished offensive coordinators, and hired former New England Patriots director of player personnel Dave Ziegler as general manager.
For our hometown Raiders, this marks their third season playing home games at Allegiant Stadium. Quickly becoming known for star-studded fan attendance, celebrity-chef food selection, Vegas-style half-time shows, and of course great football, Raiders’ 2022 home games include matchups against division rivals Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers. Also meeting the Raiders on their home turf are the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers.
As the excitement grows for the first coin toss, here’s what being said about our Las Vegas Raiders!
And to make the going easy, consider using Game Day Express to get to and from Allegiant Stadium. Buses leave from six locations valley-wide starting three hours before kick-off, making it safe, easy and convenient to enjoy the game without the hassle of parking. Or, ride the Deuce on the Strip bus down Las Vegas Blvd. and walk across Hacienda Bridge with fellow Raider Nation fans.
