Raiders reach deal to play 2019 season at Oakland Coliseum – report

The ongoing saga of where the Oakland Raiders will spend the 2019 NFL season appears to be finally at an end.

It has been reported that the Raiders will play another season at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum before moving to Las Vegas in 2020.

There is also an option to stay in Oakland in 2020 in case there are any delays to the Vegas Stadium. A deal could be wrapped up this week while final approval would happen at NFL meetings next month.

The proposed agreement comes just weeks after it was reported that the Raiders were on the brink of signing a deal to play at San Francisco Giants’ Oracle Park for 2019, amid a lengthy search to find a temporary venue.

The Raiders had ended their lease to play at the Coliseum early following the City of Oakland’s lawsuit against the Raiders and the NFL over the Vegas switch.

But Raiders owner Mark Davis has evidently had a change of heart after describing the lawsuit as “meritless and malicious”.
