The newest addition to our community, the Las Vegas Raiders, will be making a mark on Henderson as well with their 335,000 square foot training facility and headquarters. Featuring three outdoor football fields, 150,000 square feet of indoor field house, and technology to mimic game time environment, this state of the art facility is prepping the Raiders for success!
