The Raiders held a secret meeting with city officials to discuss constructing a new stadium in Oakland.

Just about every team in the Bay Area wants a new stadium; the Oakland Raiders are no exception. The Raiders held a secret meeting on August 9 in which Oakland mayor Jean Quan and city officials met with Mark Davis and Raiders president Amy Trask according to the Oakland Tribune.

With the Warriors planning a move to San Francisco and the A’s looking to move to San Jose, the city of Oakland is hoping the Raiders will stay put, but build a new Coliseum complex. At this point it is unknown if the NFL, who already pledged $200 million to the 49ers planned stadium in Santa Clara, would contribute to a new stadium in Oakland. The NFL still hopes the two teams could become co-tenants of the Santa Clara stadium, although that looks unlikely at this stage.

The Raiders have said they would like to remain in Oakland, but in addition to Santa Clara a return to Los Angeles is not out of the question.
