Tuesday night the Henderson City Council unanimously approved the sale of a 55-acre plot of land near the Henderson Executive Airport for $6.05 million to the Raiders organization. It will be the future home of the Raiders practice facility and corporate headquarters once the team makes the move to Las Vegas, which is targeted for 2020.

“The Raiders would like to thank Mayor March, the Henderson City Council, City Manager Bob Murnane and City Attorney Josh Reid for welcoming the Silver and Black to this wonderful community,” said Raiders President Marc Badain. “This is the first step in creating a state-of-the-art permanent headquarters and practice facility in Henderson. We believe that it will continue to establish the organization as a strong business and community partner in Southern Nevada.”

The Raiders are expected to invest around $75 million in developing the land, which is in West Henderson near the Henderson Executive airport.

With the binding purchase and sale agreement now finalized, a groundbreaking for the facility is being considered for April or May of 2019 with completion expected by April 2021.
