The idea of creating a new arena is made by Mark Davis’s father, Al Davis, who has been looking for the team, so he has been looking for in Los Angeles and Las Vegas Better place to live. Nevada executives agreed to raise $ 750 million in public funds to build a new arena.

During this period, the Raiders are still Auckland’s team.
Davis said: “Raiders will be in the future to achieve greater success in the world of entertainment capital to build a world-class arena is the first step in the great cause of success.” Although the NFL team moved into a Popular, but the league’s most rebellious team is now involved in this wave. “In the past 14 months, the Rams, Lightning, Raiders have issued a statement of the team’s relocation,” Guder said in an interview: “leaving the raid, will make the local residents feel sad.”
On Friday, Auckland officials raised 1.3 billion plans to build a new arena and spent eleven hours trying to convince the team owner. Local fans and a newspaper editorial department in San Francisco launched a petition campaign – Raiders in Auckland have a far tradition, the fans market is gradually increasing, Auckland need Raiders. Goodall replied to the officials that the proposal was not detailed and there was no clear and viable schedule, and that there were some obvious obstacles, although both sides had made great efforts, but that was not a complete viable option.

The only thing that is worth noting is that they have chances to chase the championship before the team moves out.
