The Raiders have inked a major partnership ahead of their 2020 move to Las Vegas, as Cox Communications will be a Las Vegas stadium founding partner. As part of the partnership, Cox will provide multiple gig-speed bandwidth to fans and stadium operations alike.
“With a rich history of powering the largest stadiums, hotels and convention centers – many right here in Las Vegas – we’re excited to work with Cox on the next evolution of the connected fan experience,” said Marc Badain, president of the Raiders.
Cox will work to ensure both fans and the Raiders organization have an effortless online experience at the new stadium and practice facility. In addition, Cox will power interactive technology activations for fans during every home game and is an official video television provider of Las Vegas Stadium.
“Las Vegas is the sports and entertainment capital of the world, but it’s also becoming one of the smartest, and most connected cities in the world,” said Pat Esser, president, Cox Communications. “The new Las Vegas Stadium will perfectly complement this progression and could become the smartest gridiron yet.”
As a Founding Partner, Cox will participate in community events and sponsor an annual program that highlights entrepreneurship and innovation. Cox Media will also sponsor the state-of-the-art media studio at the Raiders practice facility in Henderson.
Cox Business (and its Hospitality Network group) serves more than 90 percent of the hotel and convention space on the Las Vegas Strip today, the Las Vegas Convention Center, UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center and is the exclusive technology integration/ telecommunications services provider at T-Mobile Arena, home of the Vegas Golden Knights, and the technology sponsor at Las Vegas Ballpark, the upcoming home of Minor League Baseball’s Aviators (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League).
