More about Oakland Coliseum in Oakland
Oakland-Alameda Coliseum or Oakland Coliseum, opened in 1966, is home to the Oakland Raiders and Oakland Athletics, and is the last remaining multi-purpose stadium left in the United States. The A's have called the stadium home since 1968 and have won four World Series titles as tenants of the Coliseum, the last title in 1989. The Raiders called the Coliseum home from its inaugural year in 1966 through 1981 when they moved to Los Angeles. Upon their return from LA the Raiders once again have occupied the stadium since 1995. During their time in Oakland the Raiders have won an AFL Championship and two Super Bowl Titles (one title in LA).
O.com Coliseum was constructed for $25.5 million ($180 million in today's dollars) and features a unique underground design where the playing surface is actually below ground level (21 feet). Fans entering the stadium find themselves walking on to the main concourse of the stadium at the top of the first level of seats. The Coliseum has had a variety of configurations over the years, including multiple football configurations. It currently seats just over 35,000 for baseball (where the upper deck is covered with a tarp) and 52,000 for football. In its baseball configuration the Coliseum has by far the most foul territory of any major league ballpark, especially along the foul lines. For years Athletics hitters have complained about the number of additional outs they're subject to hitting in the Coliseum day in and day out. The distance to the backstop was once an incredible 90 feet, but has now been reduced to sixty feet, still the greatest distance in baseball.
Of course the most famous aspect of the Coliseum for Raiders games is the "Black Hole", Sections 104, 105, 106, and 107, and the epicenter of Raider Nation. Although controversial at times, Raider Nation perfectly captures the Raider mystique created and fostered by the late longtime owner Al Davis. Know for rowdy and incredible loyal fans, the Black Hole historically has helped give the Raiders one of the better home field advantages in the NFL. As part of their return to Oakland from LA the Raiders negotiated improvements to the Coliseum--- including the creation of the Black Hole.
Access to Oakland Coliseum is easy via the BART Metro system and due to the many lots that surround the stadium is very convenient for parking and tailgating. The BART Coliseum/Airport Stations is located across San Leondro Street from the Coliseum and is accessible by a pedestrian overpass. AC Transit buses and Amtrak Trains also have Coliseum stops. With easy freeway access many consider the Coliseum as the most convenient professional sports stadium or arena in Northern California. If you're taking your car (convenient for tailgating) you can get off of I-880 at either Hegenberger or 66th and park in the parking lot. For Tuesday A's games, parking is free. For those looking to fly in for a Raiders game the airport is just a few miles from the stadium, adding another element to the ease of transportation to the Coliseum.
