Due to COVID-19 last season, NFL teams weren’t allowed to conduct training camps outside of their team facilities last year. With restrictions loosening up around the country, the NFL is allowing teams this year to return somewhat back to normal.
With that being said, it appears as if the Raiders plan on staying in Henderson.
As the article from the Las Vegas Review-Journal states, the Raiders held camp in Napa, California — which was 50 miles north of Oakland — for many years. But last year they held training camp in Henderson, about 15 miles from Las Vegas.
As of right now, there is no official date as to when training camp will officially get underway.
Here is more information from the article in regards to camp.
However, the league sent a memo Friday to all 32 teams indicating an openness to clubs conducting camps at a location other than their home facility or home stadium. The league is asking teams that fall into that category to submit a full Infectious Disease Emergency Response Plan explaining how the club will comply with the NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 protocols at the alternative locations — including any hotels and transportation that will be needed.
Teams interested in doing camp at an alternate site must submit the plan no later than June 11.
