Oakland Raiders exploring pre-season game in Canada

The Oakland Raiders are exploring playing a pre-season game in Canada, which would come in addition to their regular-season game against the Chicago Bears in London.

The exact opponent, date and venue remains unknown but Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan, is in the running.

The Raiders are still to finalise their home for the 2019 season, with a move back to the Oakland Coliseum due to be announced in the coming weeks.

With the two planned games abroad, the Raiders would play just eight contests – one exhibition and seven regular-season matches – at Oakland Coliseum next season prior to the play-offs.

The team are also preparing for their expected move to Las Vegas in 2020 by announcing a 10-year partnership with Cox Communications.

Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams are in discussions about playing a pre-season game in Honolulu in August, ESPN has reported.
