The Las Vegas Raiders are a professional American football team based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The team was founded in 1960 as one of the original American Football League (AFL) teams, before joining the National Football League (NFL) in 1970 when the two leagues merged. The Raiders have enjoyed some success over the years, with three Super Bowl victories (in 1976, 1980 and 1983). Throughout their history, they have had many talented players who contributed to the team's success, including legends like Jim Plunkett, Marcus Allen and Howie Long. In 2020, the team made its debut in Las Vegas, moving from their original home of Oakland, California, where they have spent the majority of their history. Now they play at the new Allegiant Stadium, a massive indoor stadium that seats more than 65,000 spectators.
The team is led by coach Jon Gruden, who returned to the Raiders in 2018 after a ten-year hiatus as a television analyst. Gruden brought a new enthusiasm and mentality to the team, seeking to build a winning culture around its core of young talent. With their new return to Las Vegas and the exciting energy surrounding the team, the Raiders are ready to push for Super Bowl glory. With a passionate fan base and a unique stadium atmosphere, Raiders home games in Las Vegas are sure to be a must-see event for football fans.
