In Oakland Raiders News: The Oakland Raiders may very well soon become the “Las Vegas Raiders,” per reports indicating that the California-based team applied to register trademarks associated with the new name through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). According to the USPTO, the NFL franchise have been submitting applications seeking to register trademarks related to professional football activity and items under the new title.
The new trademark would serve to protect all future merchandise such as clothing, hats, jerseys, footwear, T-shirts, cellphone covers and a variety of other items depicting a Las Vegas Raiders logo. It would also cover education and entertainment services affiliated with professional football games. Raider team owner Mark Davis has previously expressed interest in relocating the team to Las Vegas because of the potential for building a new stadium.
The new stadium in Las Vegas could potentially serve as the home base for not only his NFL franchise, but also the local college football team. The Raiders bid to move the team Los Angeles recently fell through, leaving the franchise seeking alternative options to relocate from the 50-year-old Oakland Alameda Coliseum where they are based.
