The Raiders are on the move, literally.

They’re already officially the Las Vegas Raiders, but the team that was for many years the Oakland Raiders is now moving out of its longtime facility in Alameda, California.

Paul Gutierrez of ESPN reports that the Raiders are in the process of packing up their facility, and some moving trucks have already left for Las Vegas.

The Raiders’ facility, which is near Oakland International Airport, has been closed since March 24 because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Raiders have worked at the Alameda facility since 1996.

  1. Can’t see them returning to Oakland this time! The new, extravagant Las Vegas stadium will surely be the anchor that the aged L.A. Coliseum never was.

  3. Welcome to Vegas the greatest franchise in the history of the NFL

    ONE NATION, RAIDER NATION

  4. Awesome news, Las Vegas Raiders, great new stadium and practice facility and a revamped defense = playoffs

  5. Oakland might not be the best place for an NFL franchise, but at least it’s not Minnesota.

  6. after being a fan since 1963 and season ticket holder the last 24 yrs, I’m done
    good riddance

  7. The people that bash California have probably never been to California. Also those same people have probably never been to more than five other states in their whole life.

  8. As a lifelong California resident I don’t blame them for leaving. I want to leave too.

    See you later. You treated your local fan base terribly.
    ————————————————————-
    You mean the fan base that never finished higher than 29th in the league in attendance since 2008, finishing LAST six times?

  10. Oakland would not build them a stadium. Their current stadium is a dump. Hate it when the baseball part interferes with the football. So the Raiders should move.

    You don’t have to live there to see videos of homeless camps, the San Francisco poop map, the tax rate and the politics.

    At least 50% of them are moving to Texas, we don’t mind having y’all, just PLEASE don’t vote the same way you did “back home.” Remember, you’re fleeing for a reason.

  13. As long as there are disgruntled teams and team owners …MAYFLOWER will always stay in business.

  14. Thank you Al Davis for all you have done for the “Raider Nation”, we continue to miss you dearly. It’s time to go from Oakland to Vegas and prosper into the realm of the Sin City. This organization will now begin their journey and embrace the opportunity to flourish in the Flame that Burns brightest in this organization, the Will to Win. This business move by your son and the Raider ownership will now bring to the Las Vegas Raiders what Oakland’s politicians could never achieve. With love and respect to the Oakland and L.A. fans, the greatness of that history will never die. The Raiders will now be able to compete in the NFL for free agency and all other financial aspects in order for a NFL franchise to truly thrive in todays world.

    This is a special franchise with a very deep NFL history, the truly dedicated Raider fans from all areas of the world understand. The Greatness of the Raiders is now forthcoming in Las Vegas and the first Super Bowl for the Sin City now awaits.

    Yours Truly in Silver & Black

  15. And once again the Raiders are forced to move because their legendary fans, cough, cough, failed to support them.

    ONE NATION, GARBAGE NATION!

  16. The end of one great era, but the beginning of another. I think they’ll win 2 or 3 super bowls before Gruden’s 10 years are up.
