Not only are the Raiders making history with their recent transition from the Oakland Raiders to the Las Vegas Raiders, Vegas’ first dedicated NFL team, but Raiders fans now have the opportunity to secure a piece of history alongside with them.
The Raiders Foundation announced on Tuesday that fans will be able to purchase a personalized brick at Allegiant Stadium, the team’s new home in Las Vegas, through the Legacy Brick Program.
The personalized bricks will be cemented right in front of the entrance where fans will walk in once the stadium officially opens its doors August 2020. The bricks are a great way to pay tribute to loved ones or your love for Raider nation, in a lasting way.
All Proceeds Benefit the Raiders Foundation
Bricks range from $850-$1500, and all proceeds will benefit the Raiders Foundation, the charitable arm of the Raiders. Every dollar that is generated through the foundation goes straight back into the community. The foundation is committed to increasing community and civic health through military support, youth development, youth sport’s initiative and growing the game of football, according to a news release.
The Raiders Foundation first major charitable act as the Las Vegas Raiders was pledging $500,000 to eliminate student meal debt across the silver state:
“Today, we want to make a donation to the Nevada Department of Agriculture meal service program, which feeds kids lunch and breakfast at the schools. We are hoping to eliminate the debt that the entire state of Nevada has to do that project, and in that regard we are donating $500,000 to the program,” said Raiders Owner Mark Davis.
On Tuesday, Raiders partnered with MGM Resorts and Clean the World to package and donate hygiene kits to homeless veterans.
The Raiders are currently scheduling elementary schools, recreation centers, and other non-profit organizations for 2020 Raiders Junior Training Camps. These are free youth football clinics facilitated by the Raiders for boys and girls ages 7-12.
Raiders Junior Training Camps emphasize education, exercise and positive choices for kids in a safe and fun environment. The Camp’s curriculum was developed so that any student can participate regardless of age, gender, ability, or experience.
Raiders Surprise Local Fan-Family with Stadium’s First Seats
On Tuesday, the Raiders also surprised fans with the first installed stadium seats in a Twitter video, as well as the family that will be calling those seats theirs this year.

Instead they were surprised with the first seats in the house — the same seats they'll sit in this upcoming season.

The Diaz family lives in Vegas but have been loyal Raiders supporters for years. One of the family members in the video mentioned that he is a Raiders season ticket holder and has been traveling to Oakland from Vegas to see the games. Now that the Raiders are officially in Vegas, the family couldn’t be more thrilled.
