The Raiders' quest to find a home stadium for the 2019 season may take them to a London soccer field, according to a report in a British newspaper. 

The Daily Mail reported that the Raiders might share the stadium used by Premier League squad Tottenham Hotspur. The stadium includes an NFL field beneath the retractable grass pitch used by the soccer team, according to the Daily Mail.

The league has been trying build an audience in England by scheduling a handful of games in London for years. 

The Raiders are scheduled to begin playing in Las Vegas as their next permanent home in 2020. But a dispute with Oakland officials has raised questions about whether they'll return to the Coliseum for a final season next season.

Oakland sued the team and the NFL for alleged antitrust violations stemming from the Raiders' decision to relocate. 

The team has also been in talks to use the San Francisco Giants' AT&T Park.
