Owners approve Raiders move to Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NV —
After months of speculation, the Oakland Raiders will soon be off to Las Vegas, Nevada. You are seeing renderings of the proposed stadium that is expected to open for the 2019 season.
Owners approved the move in a vote earlier today that will see Southern Nevada land its second major sports team in the matter of about a year-and-a-half. 24 yes votes were needed to make the move possible and all but one team, the Miami Dolphins approved of the relocation.
The Raiders will continue to play in Oakland while their new stadium is being built.
