Raiders telling season ticket holders they don’t know where they’ll play next season
The Oakland Raiders are seemingly clueless about where exactly they will play football next season. According to a report by Darren Rovell of The Action Network, the Raiders are contacting loyal ticket holders to notify them that as of right now, the team is unsure which location Derek Carr and company will be calling home.
The Raiders have begun calling season ticket holders telling them that they don’t know where they are going to play next season, but ticket reps will stay in touch.
It’s one thing for Raiders fans to see the team go down burning in the 2018 season. It’s another to not even know whether the Raiders are still going to exist within the confines of Oakland.
The Raiders are scheduled to move to Las Vegas in 2020, but their 2019 season remains a mystery as far as location is concerned. Their lease for the Oakland Coliseum will expire at the end of the 2018 season, and with the Raiders already eliminated from Super Bowl contention, it’s very possible that the team may have played its last game in the building.
Apart from that logistical issue, the Raiders are also dealing with a legal problem, with Oakland suing the NFL and every other team in the league for alleged collusion in an effort to force host cities into building taxpayer-funded stadiums.
In any case, the Raiders will have a busy offseason in which they are also going to sort out their team’s composition following a pathetic 4-12 campaign.
