The impact of the Las Vegas Raiders’ decision to require all fans who attend games at Allegiant Stadium this season to be vaccinated against the coronavirus has had some impact on the business side of the franchise.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Raiders owner Mark Davis said about 1,800 new season tickets are available for purchase to fully vaccinated fans. The first home game is Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.
Raiders owner Mark Davis said about 1,800 season tickets are available after some fans opted for a refund or fee roll over to next season, due to the vaccination requirement. About 250 were refund requests, with the remaining being fee roll overs. #vegas #raiders #raidernation— Mick Akers (@mickakers) September 1, 2021
Therefore, the estimated 1,550 season ticket holders will be able to get their tickets back for the 2022 season, assuming the vaccinated guideline is lifted by then. So, 250 of the season tickets available can be for beyond this season.
This is a big opportunity for fans. And the Raiders should be pleased only a relatively small number of season-ticket holders opted out.
Fans can get the vaccine shot on game days at Allegiant Stadium this season and then enter the stadium that day, wearing a mask. Fully vaccinated fans, with proof of prior vaccination, don’t need to wear masks. Children under the age of 12 can attend games while wearing masks.
