The Raiders may have their future home set for Las Vegas in 2020, but they have spent the last few months trying to figure out where they would play in 2019. After an apparent falling out between the franchise and the city of Oakland, who filed a lawsuit against the Raiders in 2018, it was announced that the Raiders had re-upped their lease with the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. NFL owners approved the lease on Monday.

The agreement between the Raiders and the Oakland Coliseum Authority is a one-year contract with a 2020 option, in case the Las Vegas stadium isn’t ready in time. The Raiders will pay $7.5 million per game this season, and $10.5 million per game next season if they exercise the option.

According to Richard N. Velotta of the Las Vegas Review Journal, the Vegas stadium is expected to be completed at the end of July in 2020.
