HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Officials in a Las Vegas suburb have approved a sale of land to the Oakland Raiders where the NFL team will build its new headquarters and practice facility when it moves in 2020.

KLAS-TV reports the Henderson City Council on Tuesday approved the more than $6 million sale of the 55-acre plot near the Henderson Executive Airport south of Las Vegas.

The Raiders expect the project to create about 250 full-time jobs not counting the players. The team will spend about $75 million to build the facility.

Henderson Mayor Debra March says the project will boost the city's economic development efforts as well as the city's recognition.

The team is considering holding a groundbreaking in April or May.
