In a statement obtained by FOX5 on Wednesday, the team said the request to stay in Bay Area California has made little progress despite efforts to stay.
The team said they “understand this is a difficult day for Oakland fans and the community.”
FOX5 is working to learn more about the stadium’s location and construction timeline.

Oakland President A told the AP reporter the team hopes to break ground by next year with a move-in date of 2027.
