First the Raiders, then the Warriors, and now possibly the Athletics. Soon Oakland will have no professional sports teams in town.

I wouldn't be surprised if they end up in Vegas too.

Maybe 10k, but I see what you are thinking.
0.000000000% chance El Paso ever gets a MLB team. El Paso can only hope for a NWSL or Rugby team. Those are the only two “realistic” top leagues they could get. NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL, MLS are never coming here.

El Paso is a AAA, USL Championship, GLeague type of city.

Actually, if Vegas lands the As, that makes a trip to Vegas even more desirable.

Go in the fall: and you can catch an NFL or NHL game.
Go in the summer: catch an MLB game.

NFL hasn’t been family friendly for years. Unless you’re buying on stub hub during week 17 involving two horrible teams.

I will never pay those prices for a NFL ticket. My wife and I had great seats in Jerry world's 2nd season on tickets paid for by a vendor. Went to a game in 2018 when my son-in-law was in town but sat in the nose-bleeds for whatever the cheapest price was and that was only because he brought his German brother-in-law. We had a great time but not because of the game but rather because of each other's company.
