After looking like the Oakland Raiders relocation to Las Vegas may get pushed back until 2021, the Raiders have gotten their lease agreement approved unanimously by the Las Vegas Stadium Authority Board.

One of the first to report the news was Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Rick Velotta.

With the approval, the stadium is back on track to be completed for the 2020 campaign.

Interestingly enough, this news comes on the same day that the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers’ announced that their new stadium would get pushed back one season due to inclimate weather.

The news also means that Raiders owner Mark Davis will not have to be looking for a temporary home for his team for multiple seasons prior to their relocation.

The Oakland Raiders might have to wait one more year until they head to Las Vegas. They were originally expected to move in 2020 to Sin City, but now it is looking like the move will be pushed back one more year.

The Raiders currently do not have a lease agreement and one needs to be agreed upon before construction of the stadium can begin.

Once there is an agreement, it still must be approved by the NFL owners, which can only be done at an NFL owners meeting.

There is an owners meeting May 22-23, but not again until October, per NBC Sport’s Scott Bair.

“If you miss the May deadline and push to October, we would lose a year,” Raiders President Marc Badain said after a Las Vegas Stadium Authority board meeting Thursday.

Seven days is an extremely short window to finalize a lease of this magnitude, but it may be the deadline the Raiders are facing if they still desire a 2020 move-in date.

Facing multiple seasons without a planned temporary home isn’t an ideal situation, however, Raiders owner Mark Davis will not be without options to rent out space.
