Oakland Oracle Colisseum
Opened in 1966, the Oakland Oracle Coliseum is home to the Oakland Athletics MLB baseball team and the Oakland Raiders NFL professional football team. The Oakland Oracle Coliseum features a unique, subterranean design with an interesting low profile and a below ground level playing surface that minimizes the impact of the stadium on the surrounding neighborhood.
The Coliseum was renovated in 1995, adding 22,000 new spectator seats, 90 luxury suite boxes, private clubs, high-tech scoreboards, and a sharply slanted nosebleed section that Oakland Athletics fans despise. www.coliseum.com
