San Francisco Mayor Doesn't Want The Oakland Raiders To Play In Her City
The Oakland Raiders have been having a few problems trying to find a home for the 2019 season. In 2020, the Oakland Raiders will become the Las Vegas Raiders but as of right now they’re trying to come to a solution for next season. Yesterday, it was reported that the team was in the midst of talking to the San Francisco Giants of the MLB in order to play their home games at Oracle Park in San Fran. Despite the reports, it appears that San Francisco mayor London Breed isn’t a big fan of the idea.
Breed spoke to KTVU-TV on Tuesday where she made her feelings about a Raiders move to San Francisco clear.
“As far as I’m concerned, the Oakland Raiders should play in Oakland,” Breed explained. “In SanFrancisco we have a number of challenges that we need to address with the Warriors coming to the new Chase arena. We have a number of things for years we’ve been working to prepare for, and we don’t need another layer to add to what we already have in terms of an area that’s really congested.”
Last season the Raiders had an abysmal season finishing with a record of 4-12 which put them in last place in the AFC West.
