The Raiders and Allegiant announced in a press release on Monday morning an agreement for the naming rights to the Las Vegas Stadium, which will be the future home of the Raiders and UNLV football.

We’re thrilled that our future home will be known as Allegiant Stadium,” said Raiders President Marc Badain. “As the hometown airline, Allegiant is the perfect partner to showcase the incredible support we continue to receive from the Southern Nevada community. We are grateful to all involved who worked diligently to make Allegiant Stadium a reality.

The under-construction Allegiant Stadium will be home to the Las Vegas Bowl beginning in 2020, which will no longer feature a Mountain West team, but rather a Pac-12 opponent versus either a Big Ten or SEC opponent.

This partnership is an incredibly exciting opportunity to join Las Vegas’ hometown airline with its new hometown NFL team,” said Maury Gallagher, Allegiant chairman and chief executive officer. “It will not only amplify our growing brand as the only U.S. airline focused on leisure travel and experiences, but will also provide access to NFL games and special opportunities for fans across the country. We are thrilled to be able to bring Raider Nation to its new capital—Las Vegas.

The new partnership will allow Allegiant to feature exterior signage at the transformational facility that is set to become the next big thing along the Las Vegas Strip, according to the press release.

The Raiders and Allegiant are also teaming up to provide additional enhancements rewarding customers and fans with unique in-game and season-long promotions.

Terms of the new deal have not yet been released.
