Could a new football stadium be in Oakland's future?

The irony combined with the poetic justice of having the 49ers share a stadium with the Raiders in OAKLAND is just delicious. This clearly is the most feasible and sensible solution, especially with realities of California. By whatever means, keeping the Raiders in Oakland is mandatory. The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority Board — the governing agency of the Coliseum sports complex — will be asked next week to approve a "feasibility study" to look at the possibility of building a new football stadium on or adjacent to Coliseum property. "The Raiders have been interested in this for a long time," said Deena McClain, executive director of the authority. "This is a more organized look to see what the options are." "It has been out there," Steele said. "And now you have this whole problem with where are the 49ers going to go? Especially if they don’t go to Santa Clara." "The site on which we currently play is centrally located, with magnificent public transit alternatives, on a major freeway and presents an exciting location on which a new stadium can serve as the hub of a larger, urban redevelopment project," said Amy Trask, Raiders chief executive. "We have been communicating regularly with city, county and Joint Powers Authority representatives about our desire for a new, world-class stadium and the manner in which such a stadium can serve as a catalyst for regional economic growth."
