Twitch partners with the Raiders to become founding partner of Allegiant Stadium

The Allegiant Stadium will be home to several esports events in the future as well as a host of additional entertainment


Twitch has partnered with the Raiders as a founding partner of Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas beginning in 2020.

The partnership will spawn a Twitch-branded lounge on the lower level of Allegiant Stadium rife with interactive elements, including viewing screens, esports competitions, Twitch events, and more. The stadium will also play ohmergahd to a wide variety of sporting events, concerts, and more over time. In short, it sounds like a real entertainment hub, and it's going to be a pretty big deal.

“At Twitch, we are constantly looking for new ways to engage with our community online and IRL. Being a founding partner at Allegiant Stadium is a perfect opportunity for Twitch to converge our passionate gaming and live esports community with the world of traditional sports,” said Sara Clemens, Chief Operating Officer at Twitch. “As part of our long-term vision for multiplayer entertainment, we are excited to elevate the spectator experience at live events in the heart of the Entertainment Capital of the world.”

Many players will be excited to hear that esports competitions will be coming to Allegiant Stadium and sponsored by Twitch, which is a pretty exciting development for all.

“We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Twitch as the Official Streaming Platform of the Raiders and Allegiant Stadium,” said Raiders President, Marc Badain. “The Twitch Lounge will elevate the spectator experience for Raiders fans in a brand new way — bridging the connection between fans in the stadium and at home unlike ever before.”

The stadium will be adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip and construction is planned to be completed in 2020 to coincide with the arrival of the Raiders. It will create 6,000 permanent jobs and will hold a capacity of 65,000 people. What do you say? Want to take a big Shacknews road trip to the stadium when it's finally complete?
