The NFL will meet with officials from the City of Oakland and Alameda County on Wednesday morning regarding the status of an East Bay stadium proposal for the Raiders, a league official told CSN Bay Area on Tuesday.
Eric Grubman, the league point man on possible NFL relocation to Los Angeles, will be the league’s chief representative at these meetings.
Grubman will report information from these sessions to the league’s six-owner committee on Los Angeles relocation on April 22 in New York. Grubman will also update the status of stadium proposals for existing markets of the San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams, two other teams with strong ties to L.A.
As previously reported by Sports Business Journal, CSN Bay Area has confirmed that the Raiders, Rams and Chargers will present updates on competing L.A. stadium proposals during the aforementioned meeting.
These updates precede the next NFL owners meeting, which takes place May 18-20 in San Francisco.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke leads a stadium proposal in Inglewood. The Chargers and Raiders are working on a proposal that would house both teams in Carson.
Raiders owner Mark Davis insists that his top priority is to remain in the East Bay.
