Raiders To Leave Oakland For Vegas [VIDEO]
The Raiders are will be heading to Las Vegas in two years after the NFL owners approved the move during the league meetings on Monday.
The Raiders will stay in Oakland for the next two seasons before playing in a temporary stadium in Vegas for a season before their new digs open up for the 2020 season. The move will be the third city for the franchise after relocating to Los Angeles from Oakland and back to the Bay Area over the years. They had been in Oakland since 1995. Part of the team leaving Oakland was the stadium proposal from the city which lacked the public money that the ownership group was looking for in an arena deal. The city of Las Vegas will reportedly put up $750 million in public money and Bank of America is also loaning $650 million to Raiders’ owner Mark Davis.
