The Raiders and Allegiant announced a stadium partnership deal for the franchise's move to Las Vegas on Monday. 

"We're thrilled that our future home will be known as Allegiant Stadium," Raiders president Marc Badain said. "As the hometown airline, Allegiant is the perfect partner to showcase the incredible support we continue to receive from the Southern Nevada community. We are grateful to all involved who worked diligently to make Allegiant Stadium a reality."

The Raiders' $1.8 billion facility is scheduled to be completed ahead of the 2020 season. They will play one final season in Oakland in 2019, ending a relationship that first formed with the franchise's inception in 1960.

"This partnership is an incredibly exciting opportunity to join Las Vegas' hometown airline with its new hometown NFL team," Allegiant chairman and chief executive officer Maury Gallagher said. "It will not only amplify our growing brand as the only U.S. airline focused on leisure travel and experiences, but will also provide access to NFL games and special opportunities for fans across the country. We are thrilled to be able to bring Raider Nation to its new capital—Las Vegas."

No terms of the deal have been made available at this time. The deal could pay the Raiders upwards of $25 million per season if the terms follow past agreements.

Allegiant is a discount airline that has its headquarters in Las Vegas.
