On Saturday the Raiders confirmed that they intend on filing relocation papers to move to Las Vegas though an official announcement has not been made but is expected before too long.
I know that a uniform change/rebrand probably won’t happen, and I seriously hope they don’t change their logo or colors, because of the history that the Raiders hold but I decided to mess around with some mockups of what might become of the Raiders helmets. I really hope that they keep the silver and black color scheme but this is a What If? situation so of course I have to play the devil’s advocate.
When you look at the Las Vegas area you will notice the use of certain colors, between the casinos and Las Vegas’ various teams from their past and present.
University of Las Vegas: Scarlett and gray
Las Vegas Locomotives (UFL): Red, black and silver
Las Vegas Wranglers (ECHL) Red, black and silver
Las Vegas 51s (Triple-A Mets team): Blue and gray
You get the idea, so I worked with red and gray/silver plus there are various gradients so I tossed that in on one of the helmets.
With the Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL expansion team finalizing their name and logo I played off of their colors so the professional teams match. They have them listed as steel gray, gold, red and black. I pulled this logo from their official Golden Knights web site.
