The Las Vegas Raiders are in a very rewarding location.
They play home games in what is regarded as the entertainment capital of the world which helps attract spectators from all over the United States and the world.
Some sports fans who are in tourist mode might even include watching a game at Allegiant Stadium in their itinerary.
Then there are diehard Raiders fans from Los Angeles and Oakland who make the trip to Las Vegas and see their team play.
Those people helped the franchise get the top spot in the league in terms of ticket revenue.

It’s also great news for team owner Mark Davis because they didn’t have ticket sales to rely on during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This result proves that they made the right move business-wise.
Raiders Will Be A Top Attraction In 2022
In a city that never runs out of entertainers, the Raiders could rival the marquee names on residency in terms of appeal.
More football fans will flock to their games after the team traded for Davante Adams and gave him a five-year, $141.25 million deal.
Those players will make the Raiders an attraction that even casual visitors in Las Vegas should watch.
