Coliseum Authority to vote on Raiders lease deal on Friday

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- The Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Authority will vote on Friday to approve a lease option with the Oakland Raiders.

The deal that would have the Raiders pay $7.5 million to play at the Coliseum for the 2019 season. It also includes an option for 2020, if the Raiders' new Las Vegas stadium is not ready.

ABC7 News broke the story last month that the Raiders and the Coliseum Authority were in talks on a lease for the 2019 season.

In December, the Raiders backed out of lease negotiations for the 2019 season, after the City of Oakland filed a federal anti-trust lawsuit against the team, the NFL and all 32 team owners over the Raiders move to Las Vegas.
