Saints fans to miss opportunity in Las Vegas as Raiders plan for no fans in stands
While there are incredibly loyal fan bases around the NFL which travel quite well, the fan base of the New Orleans is as rabid and loyal as any.
That includes when it comes to traveling to road games.
Black and gold enthusiasts are always visible in opposing team stadiums and always make their presence known with their volume.
That aspect will obviously be curtailed this season with crowd restrictions to be in place everywhere.
The most anticipated road game of the season will not have any Saints fans on hand.
For that matter, no fans will be at Allegiant Stadium when the Saints play the Raiders in the first-ever game in the new NFL market in the new facility.
The Raiders informed their fans by e-mail today that their plan is to have no fans at home games this season.
The Saints vs. Raiders ticket was one of the two toughest, highest priced tickets in all of the NFL this season. Many Saints fans were planning to attend and many others were strenuously trying to still get tickets to the game, set for Monday Night Football on September 21.
