Report: Raiders could still play in Oakland in 2019.
The Raiders are still searching for a temporary venue to play in 2019 before construction of their stadium in Las Vegas is completed, but there is apparently a chance they could spend one more year in Oakland. Oakland made a final move toward pushing the Raiders out of town last week when the city filed a lawsuit alleging the team violated antitrust laws and the NFL’s rules when they “boycotted” the city of Oakland in their move to Las Vegas.
