The Raiders will play at O.co Coliseum next season, something known for quite a while. Getting a one-year lease extension formally ratified as taken some time, though an agreement was never in doubt.
Final approval should be granted on Friday morning during a special meeting of the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum Authority, which governs the stadium complex used by the Raiders, Athletics and Warriors.
A one-year lease extension has been approved by the city of Oakland and Alameda County. The final step is JPA approval, which is the primary focus of Friday’s special meeting.
The Raiders played the 2014 season under a one-year lease extension. They have no ties to the East Bay in 2016, and have recently gone in with the San Diego Chargers on a stadium proposal in Carson, just south of Los Angeles. Owner Mark Davis’ primary goal is to find a long-term solution in Oakland, and public and private entities are still working to build a football stadium that will keep the Raiders in the East Bay.
