Cox Communications announced today that the company will be a founding partner of Las Vegas Stadium, future home of the (for now Oakland/soon to be Vegas or Las Vegas) Raiders. Cox will also provide multiple gig-speed bandwidth to fans and stadium operations alike, ensuring high-speed connections for visitors and staff.
“With a rich history of powering the largest stadiums, hotels and convention centers – many right here in Las Vegas – we’re excited to work with Cox on the next evolution of the connected fan experience,” said Marc Badain, president of the Raiders.
As the silver and black prepare to settle in Las Vegas, Cox is ensuring both fans and the Raiders organization will have an effortless online experience at the NFL’s newest stadium and practice facility. Cox will also power interactive technology activations for fans during every home game and is an official video television provider of Las Vegas Stadium.
“Las Vegas is the sports and entertainment capital of the world, but it’s also becoming one of the smartest, and most connected cities in the world,” said Pat Esser, president, Cox Communications. “The new Las Vegas Stadium will perfectly complement this progression and could become the smartest gridiron yet.”
As a Founding Partner, Cox will participate in community events and sponsor an annual program that highlights entrepreneurship and innovation. Cox Media will also sponsor the state-of-the-art media studio at the Raiders practice facility in Henderson.
