The National Football League (NFL) team Las Vegas Raiders (US) will require all attendees at home games to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination through CLEAR’s free mobile app and Health Pass feature, allowing fans to attend games sans mask. The jab-must policy has been adopted as the United States is again at the receiving end of the virus – this time the Delta variant.

The ‘Las Vegas Raiders’ stated that the policy will take effect for the first regular season home game starting on September 13th against its peer team the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. The Raiders are the first team in the NFL to announce a vaccine/no mask policy.

The Las Vegas Raiders are a professional American football team based in the Las Vegas (US) metropolitan area. The Raiders compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league’s American Football Conference West division. Their residence is the scintillating Allegiant Stadium.

The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore (US). The Ravens compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference North division. The team plays its home games at the 71,008-capacity M&T Bank Stadium and is headquartered in Owings Mills, Maryland.

The National Football League (NFL) 2021-2022 seasons will start on September 9th, 2021 and will end on January 9th, 2022.

The 65,000-capacity Allegiant Stadium is a domed stadium located in Paradise, Nevada, United States. It serves as the home stadium for the Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League (NFL) and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Rebels college football team.

The ‘Las Vegas Raiders’ further stated that the Raiders implemented the change in accord with a new Emergency Directive from the Nevada Governor, Steve Sisolak, regarding large events.

Asserted Raiders owner Mark Davis, “Health and safety has always been our number one priority. After consultation with Governor Sisolak and other community leaders, this policy ensures that we will be able to operate at full capacity without masks for fully vaccinated fans for the entire season.”

The Raiders will offer the opportunity for fans to receive vaccinations on site at Allegiant Stadium prior to Raiders home games, permitting newly vaccinated fans to enter wearing a mask.

The Raiders announced a policy requiring all full-time employees on the business and football staffs of the organization to be vaccinated in May. Stadium management company ASM and stadium concessionaire Levy also have implemented mandatory vaccinations for all full-time staff at the Allegiant Stadium.
