The Raiders will have to wait another year to show off their fancy new home to their fans in Las Vegas.

"After intensive consultation with healthcare officials and state and community leaders, we have made the hard decision to play the Las Vegas Raiders 2020 inaugural season at Allegiant Stadium without fans in attendance".

"While the current situation is not how any of us envisioned celebrating the opening of Allegiant Stadium, when circumstances permit we look forward to sharing an unparalleled GameDay Experience in the Magnificent Stadium you helped to build", the team said in the letter.

Most other teams are hoping to be able to have at least limited crowds although that may not be possible at all venues.
