The Raiders have long been with Auckland, moving to Las Vegas in 2020 as a result of years of apathy towards the city of Northern California.
On Sunday, after the team’s last home in the area, Auckland showed – in state-of-the-art fashion – that it was done with the Raiders.
Some fans charge the Coliseum field after a 20-16 loss to the Jaguars. Others remained in place but threw objects to the surface of the game. Most people ran.

Many people were injured in the chaos. Security personnel and fans could see the conflict in the video.
Things go down in chaos in Auckland. Media were urged to leave the field as security deals with fan brawl. Another woman shed blood from her forehead, appearing to be hit by the trash heading into the field. pic.twitter.com/zOlImU7hEh
