The Oakland Raiders have secured funding for their potential stadium in Las Vegas

The Oakland Raiders have secured funding for their potential stadium in Las Vegas

The Oakland Raiders filed for relocation to Las Vegas in January and have since had two potential financing partners bow out, but have now found a third potential partner.

The Los Angeles Daily News is reporting that the team has lined up Bank of America to provide the remaining balance on their potential new home. 

Sands casino owner Sheldon Adelson was the original investor, but backed out saying he couldn't work with the team anymore. Investment firm Goldman Sachs also backed out in part of their allegiance to Adelson and his casinos.

It appears the Raiders have gotten over a major hurdle, but now they will still need to get the necessary votes at the owners meeting coming up later this month. 

Stay tuned to see if the Raiders will have finally found their new long-term home.
