O.co Coliseum will be ready with extra security to thwart any problems as the 49ers visit the Raiders in the regular season only for the fourth time in its history.
As we learned in preseason games, the two fan bases just don’t get along, which finally resulted in shelving their annual exhibition altogether. This will be the first time the teams meet since getting rid of the preseason matchup, and O.co Coliseum will (hopefully) be ready:
“The Raiders, Oakland Police Department, Alameda County Sheriff, and O.co Coliseum Management have worked together to create an increased law enforcement and security presence at Sunday’s game,” the Raiders statement said, via Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com.
“This includes a substantial increase in uniformed law enforcement officers, additional undercover officers, and increased private security staff. Public safety is a top priority for the Raiders, O.co Coliseum, and local law enforcement and all are working diligently to ensure that fans enjoy a safe and secure environment.”
