When will the Bengals play the Raiders in Las Vegas?

NFL owners voted 31 to 1 Monday to allow the Raiders to relocate to Las Vegas, although the move is not expected to take place until 2019 at the earliest.

The 2019 season is the earliest the Bengals could play a road game against Oakland, although the new stadium in Las Vegas is not expected to be ready until 2020.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league will look into possible venues for the Raiders in 2019, including staying one more year in Oakland. The Bengals will play a 2019 road game against the AFC West team that finishes in the same position in the 2018 standings.

A road game against the Raiders is already on the books for 2021 regardless of where each team finishes in 2020.

While opponents and sites are known years in advance, you will need to wait until the NFL announces the dates and times for the 2021 season in April of that year to start planning your own road trip.
