HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

The City of Henderson has been in discussions with the Raiders organization as a possible location for the football team's practice facility, according to Mayor Debra March.

The city released a statement regarding the potential for a facility to be built near the Henderson Executive Airport.

“The City of Henderson has been in discussions with the Raiders organization and we would be proud to be home to the team’s practice facility. We see this potential partnership as a great opportunity to boost economic development in our community. This week’s groundbreaking for the future Raiders stadium in Las Vegas has shown the excitement for the Valley’s own NFL team and we are looking forward to their arrival in Southern Nevada,” Mayor Debra March said.

The NFL team is slated to move from Oakland to Las Vegas in 2020.
