Caesars Entertainment x Las Vegas Stadium

Caesars Entertainment Corporation announced today an unprecedented 15-year partnership that will make Caesars Entertainment (Caesars) the first founding partner of the Las Vegas Stadium, the future home of the Las Vegas Raiders, elevating Caesars’ profile in professional sports.

“The Raiders are proud to welcome Caesars Entertainment as a founding partner of Las Vegas Stadium,” said Marc Badain, President of the Raiders. “We are honored to align with a company that shares the Raiders’ values of improving the local community and delivering exceptional customer service in creating this transformative project.”

“Sports have long been a core part of the Caesars experience,” said Chris Holdren, Chief Marketing Officer for Caesars Entertainment. “With this deep partnership, Caesars will become an essential part of the game time ritual for Raiders fans everywhere. From activations to exclusive experiences, fans of the silver and black will see Caesars as their home on game day.”

The historic partnership also marks the first Raiders deal with a gaming and hospitality company, providing select Caesars Entertainment customers and Total Rewards members access to exclusive experiences like the customized Caesars-branded Owners Suite at the 50-yard line of the Las Vegas stadium, VIP Dinners on the field, training facility events, fantasy camp participation, stadium tours, along with tickets to home games and most stadium events.

As a Founding Partner, Caesars Entertainment will host a branded stadium entrance and drop off zone, digital signage, media, radio and print assets in addition to alumni, player and cheerleader appearances – giving the company a commanding presence.

This partnership with the Las Vegas Raiders follows the company’s recent announcement with the Baltimore Ravens, Maryland’s only partnership between a National Football League team and a casino.

The 65,000-seat stadium will bring 520,000 people to home games each year, when it opens for the 2020 NFL season.

Golden Knights Sign Shea Theodore to Seven-Year Contract

By Reid Urban

Looks like the stand-off between restricted free agent defenseman Shea Theodore and the Vegas Golden Knights looks to be over.

Late last night, both sides ended the stand-off by agreeing to a seven-year contract extension worth $36.4 million. It is only a flat structure contract with no salary fluctuation or bonuses, meaning that he will not be guaranteed any money. However, there is a modified No-Trade Clause in the final two years.

Theodore now looks to be set to join the Golden Knights at training camp and is expected to be ready for the regular season.

The annual value for the new contract is $5.2 million, which is lower than Theodore would like. He was hoping for an annual salary close to what Josh Morrissey of the Winnipeg Jets or Darnell Nurse of the Edmonton Oilers have. However, those deals only carried two years each while Theodore gets a long-term deal in Vegas.

A while ago, we would’ve thought that the Golden Knights and Theodore would part ways at one point over this standoff, so this move comes as a bit of a surprise. However, with Theodore finally in camp for the Golden Knights, it’s just another big piece that the Golden Knights wanted to keep in order to make another run towards the Stanley Cup.
