The Raiders might maybe maybe agree with a farewell tour in Oakland.
The Coliseum Authority voted to unanimously approve the Raiders stadium rent for the 2019 season earlier than the team of workers moves to Las Vegas, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Overview-Journal reported from the board meeting Friday.

Two extra votes are required by the Oakland City Council and Alameda County Board of Supervisors to manufacture the deal official, nonetheless Friday’s resolution used to be anticipated to be essentially the most important hurdle. The closing two votes are regarded as procedural, per Gehlken.
The Raiders future in Oakland came uncertain last year when the city sued the team of workers over the trail to Las Vegas.
The settlement for 2019 requires the Raiders to pay $7.5 million in rent for the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum and their headquarters in Alameda. The deal also entails a $10.5 million chance for the 2020 season if the stadium in Las Vegas is no longer ready, per Gehlken.
After uncertainty swirled for months, the Raiders might maybe maybe agree with their goodbye season in Oakland.
