Metro Chamber Cheers Approval of Raiders Relocating to Las Vegas
Las Vegas – Today, Kristin McMillan, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Metro Chamber, issued the following statement regarding the decision by the National Football League team owners to allow the Raiders to relocate to Las Vegas:
“Today’s vote by the NFL owners to relocate the Raiders franchise is another great score for Las Vegas. This decision expands our status as a major-league city, giving tourists from around the world another compelling reason to visit, our residents an NFL team to support, and UNLV a new stadium for its football program. The Las Vegas Metro Chamber was proud to be part of the Southern Nevada Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, as well as a strong advocate for a new stadium during the special session of the Nevada Legislature, that opened this opportunity. We welcome the Raiders to Las Vegas, and we look forward to the jobs, the excitement, and the additional home town pride that comes with having an NFL team. Go Las Vegas Raiders.” – Kristin McMillan, president and CEO.
The Las Vegas Metro Chamber is the largest business association in Nevada and has been part of the Las Vegas community since 1911.
