Raiders preseason schedule 2019: Home game vs. Packers formally given away

Raiders

The Raiders are back in Oakland for one more year, but they’ll only play here once until the regular season starts.

The Silver and Black will open the preseason at Oakland Coliseum against the Rams, and then start a road trip that’ll go through the exhibition slate.

They’ll play at Arizona on Aug. 15 in a nationally-televised ESPN affair. The next “home” game comes against Green Bay, but it’s being shipped somewhere else to be determined.

The Raiders have been in discussions to move that exhibition to Canada, with the game expected on Aug. 23. Playing in Regina reportedly has been shut down by the CFL’s Saskatchewan Rough Riders.

Playing in Edmonton or Winnipeg are options at this stage, but nothing has been decided yet.

Seattle will host the Raiders’ exhibition finale, as they did last season.

The preseason games, save the ESPN game, will be broadcast on KTVU in the Bay Area. The games will also be aired on KVVU in Las Vegas, where the Raiders are expected to permanently relocate in 2020.

Exact dates and times will be announced at a later date with the Packers site to be determined.

There’s no exact date for the regular-season schedule announcement, though it's typically released in the second half of April.

The Raiders hope to find a partner for joint training camp practices, as they did with Detroit last year. Working against the Rams in Napa could be an option, as the Las Vegas Review Journal has said.
