The Raiders finally have a home for their games in the 2019 season as they have negotiated a new deal with the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum after their bid to play at Oracle Park in San Francisco was strongly rebuffed. But it’s their home for the 2020 season (if all goes as planned) that’s been really drawing attention.
The team originally had hoped to move into their new digs in 2019, but that isn’t going to happen. In fact, their new target of 2020 might not even happen as their new deal with the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum includes a team option for 2020 in case their new stadium in Las Vegas still isn’t ready by then.
“It’s exciting when you go to Las Vegas,” Gruden told reporters at the NFL combine. “You can’t deny that the stadium they’re building is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in my lifetime. The Oakland Raiders brand, the Las Vegas Raiders brand to me is as good as there is in all of sports. To be a part of it is something that really fires me up.”
Something else that will get Vegas Raiders fans fired up is some new footage Arash Markazi of the Los Angeles Times shared on Sunday.
