Report: Raiders could temporarily share Levi’s Stadium with 49ers

Mar 27, 2017 at 10:16 AM--


The NFL meetings are currently taking place and a vote on the future of the Oakland Raiders is expected. The decision is likely to allow the Bay Area neighbor of the San Francisco 49ers to relocate from Oakland to Las Vegas, Nevada. That would leave the 49ers as the only NFL team in the Bay Area.

If the vote were to go in favor of the Raiders, they would likely have to remain in the Bay Area until their new stadium in Las Vegas is complete. Where would the Raiders play in the meantime? They still have a year on their lease at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum with an option for 2018. However, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting that one potential temporary home for the Raiders could be Levi's Stadium, which is home of the 49ers. The two teams could potentially share the stadium until the Raiders are ready to move to Las Vegas.

"One option, I'm told, is Levi's Stadium," Rapoport said Monday on NFL Network. "For 2019 – certainly is an option. For 2018 – believed to be an option as well. It's not something, from my understanding, that the Niners would oppose. They've been very vocal about welcoming the Raiders if that is necessary. So that would be a potential option for the Raiders if Las Vegas is not ready to actually join forces with the 49ers for a year or two."

The Raiders need 24 of the 32 NFL owner votes to win approval for the move to Las Vegas.

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but Levi's Stadium will not host fans for Sunday's game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles, according to ESPN. The stadium didn't host fans for the team's season opener against the Arizona Cardinals on September 13 due to continued concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. That didn't rule out fans attending future games, though. The 49ers will continue to have a dialogue with state and Santa Clara County officials, and in accordance with public health guidelines, to determine when fans can return to Levi's

ESPN ranks Levi's Stadium No. 20 among NFL venues

Levi's Stadium is often criticized for its lack of personality. It's a nice big sports venue in Santa Clara, California, but not much else is typically said. Candlestick Park tends to bring back fonder memories for San Francisco 49ers fans. Yes, it was old. Yes, it was, at times, cold and windy. Levi's Stadium, by the way, is the opposite. It may have taken you a couple of hours to get out of Candlestick Park. With all of its faults, there was so much history there. That's why it will always hold a special place in the hearts of The Faithful. That lack of personality and history hurt Levi's Stadium in ESPN's recent ranking of NFL venues.
