The Oakland Raiders will play at home for at least another year.
After finding a temporary home before moving to Las Vegas, Raiders owner Mark Davis joins representatives from East Bay on Friday Return his team to the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum for the 201
The two sides agreed to a new lease, and the Coliseum Stadium Authority Board voted unanimously on Friday to approve the extension.
NFL The officials had sweated the eleven-hour deal as they put the finishing touches to the league's 2019 schedule. With the agreement and the return of the Raiders to Oakland, the league can advance the planning of all 32 teams.
When the Raiders defeated the Denver Broncos at home on Christmas Eve last year, it seemed like it was the last time the Oakland fans cheered their team in the Coliseum. But this new agreement, after the team has scoured other stadium options inside and outside the Bay Area, assures that they will have another chance to make a good start.
Even though Vegas is still on the team's horizon in 2020, the new lease agreement is an option for the team to stay in Oakland for this season if the new $ 1.84-billion Stadium of the Raiders in Las Vegas is not completed on time.
The Raiders pay $ 7.5 million for nine home games (they've planned a "home game" for London) along with $ 750,000 in parking arrears for 2019. If they have to stay in 2020, the rent would be for this season to raise $ 10.5 million.
Although the Oakland City Council and Alameda County administrators still have to approve the deal, it is to be expected.
This means that fans of Oakland will see their shiny new broadband broadcaster Antonio Brown in silver and black for at least another season.
