Santa Clara, CA, United States (4E Sports) – NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suggested that the Oakland Raiders share the newly opened Levi’s Stadium with the San Francisco 49ers.
The Raiders have a year left on their lease at O.co Coliseum but they have no definitive plans after that. The Oakland A’s extended their lease for 10 more years but the Raiders want the coliseum demolished to pave way for a new one.
“They have to make that determination, whether they’re in a new stadium in Oakland or whether they feel that it’s best to join this stadium,” Goodell said during the opening ceremonies of Levi’s Stadium, venue of Super Bowl 50.
“We’re working on that, and that’s one of the decisions they’ll have to make,” he added.
However, Raiders owner Mark Davis isn’t interested in sharing the new venue with the Raiders.
In February, Davis conceded that if progress isn’t made for a new home, the Raiders could relocate altogether.
“I don’t want to call it a last-ditch effort, but it does seem to be the last chance that Oakland is going to get,” Davis said. “We can’t continue to play in that stadium with the baseball field and all of that stuff.”
