Raiders to play 2019 season in Oakland

OAKLAND — Raiders fans will get to root for their team in Oakland one more season.

After months of searching for a temporary home, owner Mark Davis settled on the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum after reaching a lease deal Friday with East Bay officials.

The Coliseum Stadium Authority board at its Friday meeting voted unanimously to approve the lease extension.

The Raiders will pay $7.5 million, plus $750,000 they owe from previous parking fees to play nine home games in Oakland where they have a devoted fan base. The rent would increase to $10.5 million if the team exercises an option year, a provision added in case construction in Las Vegas stalls.
