The Raiders appear to have their first major event in their new home.
Coach Jon Gruden said Saturday night while attending the Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury fight that the Raiders will be holding their mandatory minicamp from June 14-16 in the Las Vegas area. Gruden added that the team hopes to accommodate as many members of the public as possible at the event.
“If we can let everyone in, we will,” Gruden said, via Ed Graney of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
It was not clear if the event would be held in Las Vegas or at the team’s practice facility in nearby Henderson, but planning still appears to be ongoing.
The move to Vegas seems to be going well. Despite initial concerns, there appears to be a willing fanbase recreating some of the traditions from Oakland, and a minicamp is sure to draw some fan interest. How much of it sticks once the games begin remains to be seen.
