The Oakland Raiders will have a glorious home for 2020 and beyond with their Las Vegas’ stadium being an astonishing piece of architecture. But the issue is that there’s still a full season to be played until then and Raiders have nowhere to go. That is unless San Francisco Giants give them a helping hand.

According to Associated Press, Raiders are currently negotiating with the Giants about the possibility of playing home games at their Oracle Park in 2019. The sources say that nothing has been finalized yet, but that confirmation should be expected next week.

When asked about this, the team’s owner Mark Davis said that the team isn’t ready to make the announcement about it just yet.

“When we’re ready to make the announcement, we will.” – Davis told ESPN.

Oakland Raiders are currently without a stadium since the city of Oakland decided to sue the team and National Football League due to the planned move to Las Vegas. After the suit was filed in December, Davis ended the negotiations with the city about extending their lease for Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum for 2019.

Despite this, Raiders are considering re-opening the negotiations or sharing Levi’s Stadium with San Francisco 49ers since NFL will start making the schedule for 2019 soon and need a decision by then.
