Mark Davis excited for 'synergy' between Las Vegas Aces, Las Vegas Raiders
Mechelle Voepel (ESPN)
February 17, 2021

New Las Vegas Aces owner Mark Davis said he sees opportunities for "synergy" between the WNBA franchise and the NFL's Las Vegas Raiders, both from a sports standpoint and in regard to social justice issues and progress with diversity.

So they will play at MGM this year ... good news, I think.

Also, Davis' apparent connection with Bill Laimbeer echoes his relationship with Jon Gruden (10-year contract) so that adds another layer of stability. If Davis can absorb a million or two in losses most years, this should be a winning combination.

"It's a great facility," Davis said. "We're looking to do what's best for the organization. The venue you play in is very important to your local economy. MGM controls most of those fixed assets, such as naming rights, the sponsorships that go 365 days a year. We're going to need those revenue streams to build the coffers of the Aces.


I don't know why he mentions naming rights, which I only associate with the arena, unless that is with regard to trying to get them via his own arena. But it would be odd if MGM was still getting Las Vegas Aces sponsor money which that quote seems to suggest. But there may be "arena sponsors" who pay MGM to have their name at any events, whether an Aces game or not.

He says they are considering:
* renegotiating their Mandalay Bay lease after current agreement expires this year
* leasing from someone else
* building an arena

They are planning on building an Aces training (and office space) facility in Henderson (19 min drive from Vegas). If he is seriously considering building an arena he should go check out the Mystics facility and think about a Vegas training facility/arena.

He seems keen on collecting as much revenue for himself as possible. If he were to build a (hopefully) larger version of the Mystics facility, perhaps he could host summer league games to bring in extra revenue.
