NFL: 49ers, Raiders Should Share Home

Link: NFL urges 49ers and Raiders to discuss sharing a new stadium

The NFL wants the 49ers and Raiders to share a new stadium like the Jets and the Giants do in New Jersey.

The 49ers have not begun formal discussions with the Raiders, but the team plans to expand the scope of its environmental review in Santa Clara for a stadium that could accommodate two teams playing at least 20 games a year.

Commissioner Roger Goodell has had discussions with the Raiders and 49ers in recent weeks asking the Bay Area teams, who play in two of the oldest stadiums in the league, to consider a joint project, said Greg Aiello, vice president of public relations for the NFL.

The NFL has been impressed by the success of the privately financed joint stadium effort in New Jersey, where the influential owners of the Giants and the Jets told MediaNews a version of their partnership could be the Bay Area's best chance to finance a new stadium.
