Where are Oakland Raiders games played?The Oakland Raiders team plays its home games at the RingCentral Coliseum. The Coliseum was the original stadium to host the first Oakland Raiders game against the Kansas City Chiefs in 1966. The Coliseum was renovated in 1995 with an investment of $120 million to expand its seating to an additional 22,000, along with 90 luxury suites. The Coliseum prides itself on its recycling and energy-saving projects.
Who are rivals to the Oakland Raiders?The Oakland Raiders have a number of rival teams. One of its oldest rival teams is the Kansas City Chiefs. Part of this has to do with the fact that both teams joined the American Football League around the same time. The Pittsburgh Steelers is another rival team to the Raiders. This has to do with the two teams’ meeting at the 1972 Divisional playoffs. The Raiders beat the Steelers in 1976 and went on to its first Super Bowl game, which the Raiders won. The San Diego Chargers is an in-state rival team to the Raiders, so this competition is mostly fueled by regionalism. The San Francisco 49ers is a natural rival team to the Raiders considering that both teams are in the Northern California area. The top rival team to the Raiders currently is the Denver Broncos. The two teams meet at least twice a year to compete for the AFC West win.
