Raiders will play 2019 season in Oakland

Local News

It looks like fans of the Oakland Raiders will get to cheer on their team at home for at least one more season.

On Friday, the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Board unanimously voted on a new lease to allow the Raiders to play their 2019 season and possibly the following year, if necessary.

The Raiders are expected to kick off their first season in Las Vegas in the 2020 season but that’s barring any future delays including construction on the new stadium.

The lease for next season now goes to the board of supervisors and the city council for further approval.
