The team’s November 1st matchup will be their first since they last met in 2014.
Both the Raiders and Niners used to meet every year for a preseason matchup but the Battle of the Bay series was discontinued in 2011 after fan violence forced the NFL to reconsider the annual game.
The rest of the Raiders schedule will be released at 5pm tonight.
