    Extra security from private firms as well as a significant law enforcement presence will be on hand for the San Francisco 49ers' visit to the Oakland Raiders home on Sunday, according to reports.

    CSN Bay Area reports that a "significant volume" of undercover and uniformed police will be patrolling the parking lots, tailgate areas and the stadium to make sure there's no trouble.

    The annual preseason game between the two teams was canceled after the 2011 matchup, when two shootings, two assaults and numerous fistfights led 49ers owner Jed York to ask the NFL to cancel the game.

    This is the first regular season game between the two teams since 2010, and the first time the 49ers have played in Oakland since 2002.

    No details were revealed, but the Raiders promised that safety is a "top priority."
