The cities of Birmingham and Tuscon, Arizona are looking to host the Oakland Raiders home games next season.

The Raiders are moving to Las Vegas for the 2020 season, but the team doesn't have a home for 2019.

Under this proposal, the Raiders would play some of their games at Birmingham's Legion Field.

Birmingham City Councilman William Parker believes a combined effort between the two cities could lead to substantive talks with Raiders Owner Mark Davis.

Parker added that if any upgrades needed to be done to Legion Field, they will do what is necessary.
