It appears the Raiders’ California days are all but over.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday that the NFL has told teams that they must conduct training camp at their home facilities this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

That means the Raiders will be breaking in their new state-of-the-art training facility in Henderson, Nevada, just outside of their new home base in Las Vegas for training camp, which is set to start in late July. The Las Vegas Review Journal reported last week that this was a possibility.

The initial plan was for the Raiders to hold training camp in Napa, California, as they had been doing for several years. The first year of the Las Vegas Raiders will now feature the team doing all of their preparation work in Henderson. The team began moving from their Alameda, California, facility late last week.

The new facility in Henderson features an indoor practice field, so it will keep the team out of the oppressive Las Vegas summer heat at least.
