The Las Vegas Raiders NFL American football franchise has upgraded the tailgating experience at Allegiant Stadium by adding new premium spaces for fans to enjoy before games.

A total of four mobile, two-storey, climate-controlled party trailers will been added to Lot B of the 65,000-seat stadium for all Raiders home games from the start of the 2024-25 season.

Each space will feature all-inclusive food and beverages, games such as cornhole and ring toss, a 55-inch television to watch games from around the league, a 208-square-foot top deck, and a retractable awning to provide shade.

Each space will be able to accommodate up to 20 people and the packages start at $20,000 (£15,800/€18,715).

Raiders vice-president of premium sales and service Panos Pappas told the Las Vegas Journal: “People spend that kind of money on one bottle of tequila on the strip on a Saturday night.

“Is it expensive? Sure it is. But there’s a premium that comes with it. You’re getting the full experience with it. Is it for everybody? It could be. You get all your friends together and you all chip in when you get there.”

“It came from the fans. There’s been a demand. There have been people calling our service team, our sales team and we’ve been talking about it for a couple of years and we thought it was something that we should probably do.”

The tailgating area adds to the stadium’s upscale offerings, which include 144 suites, the Modelo Cantina Club and Twitch lounge spaces, as well as the Wynn Field Club.

“Raider Nation tailgates really hard,” Pappas said.

“It’s part of our DNA, it’s part of our culture and part of what we love about the Raiders.”
