The Raiders just broke ground on the new $1. 9 billion Las Vegas stadium that they'll eventually call home but that'll only serve as the team's home on game days.

The team will spend the majority of its time at their practice facility, which currently doesn't have a location or a construction date.

Today, City of Henderson released a statement from Mayor Debra March with a possible solution to that very problem.  

The City of Henderson are in talks with the Raiders organization regarding the potential for a future team practice facility located 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,” said Mayor Debra March.

It's unclear whether Henderson is a viable option for the practice facility, but with many of the city's recent sports teams opting for a home in Summerlin, it's smart for Henderson to throw their hat in early.
