Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis commented that he supports the Oakland athletics event that may move to another city on Tuesday, saying: “The government there is not capable” to make a deal for the upcoming new stadium.
Davis, whose team moved to Las Vegas in 2020 after playing in Oakland for 45 years (1960 to 1981 and 1995 to 2019), told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. That difficulty in obtaining approval for a new stadium in Bay City is “expected.”

“I hate to say what it is expecting. But expect it, ”he said.“ It̵7;s what we’ve been through… the government over there can’t come to an agreement, that’s win-win, and that’s all you’re looking for.
The Raiders faced stadium challenges, leaving Oakland for Los Angeles in the 1982 season to return 13 years later with a new stadium. However, the organization was unable to obtain the necessary funds for its state-of-the-art facility to replace the Oakland Alameda Coliseum, now known as the RingCentral Coliseum.
Davis will pay a record $ 350 million immigration fee to bring the franchise to Las Vegas. But it also received $ 750 million from taxpayers to build the Allegiant Stadium, worth a total of $ 2 billion.

Like the Raiders, Team A is looking for an upgrade from the RingCentral Coliseum, one of the oldest stadiums in the league.
Major League Baseball released a statement on Tuesday stating that the Coliseum site is currently “It’s not the right choice for a future vision of baseball.”
“The MLB is concerned with the progress rate of A’s new ballpark efforts with local officials and other stakeholders in Auckland,” the baseball organization said. “Team A is working hard to develop a new ballpark in the downtown area. Auckland over the past four years has invested a lot of resources while facing a number of obstacles. ”

“We know they remain deeply committed to success in Auckland, and with two other sports franchises just out of the community, their commitment to Auckland has been a huge hit. More important than ever. “
Athletics was founded in 1901 in Philadelphia and was the new American League charter franchise at the time. The team moved to Kansas City in the 1955 season before eventually moving to Oakland in the 1968 season.
