Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum
Home of the Bay Area’s only professional basketball team, Oracle Arena features 72 private luxury suites, combined with enough regular seats to hold just over 19,500 screaming fans. Often referred to by locals as “The O,” Oracle Arena — after its 1997 renovation — is the largest of the 3 NBA arenas in California (the others are Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento and the Staples Center in Los Angeles).
Home to the Oakland Raiders on football Sundays (and an occasional Thursday or Monday) and the Oakland Athletics for their 81 home games a season, O.co Coliseum is the last remaining multipurpose stadium that hosts both Major League Baseball and National Football League franchises. It also is the second-smallest stadium, capacity-wise, in both sports.
