WZZZK: I think this is the most exciting news I’ve seen since I moved here.
The under construction signs for a new stadium for the Oakland Raiders will be installed in the Oakland Coliseum this summer.
The Raiders announced the news last month.
The first phase of the construction is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
The stadium is expected be open in 2018.
The Raiders are in a battle for a place in Las Vegas to host the 2018 NFL draft, with the team’s proposed location in Inglewood, California, being considered by several NFL teams.
The Las Vegas project was first announced in April.
