OAKLAND, CA – The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority announced that it has offered the Oakland Athletics a ten year lease to remain at O.co Coliseum Tuesday.

The terms, though not released publicly, were also shared with Major League Baseball.

“We wanted to send a clear statement to the A’s, the fans, Lew Wolff, and Major League Baseball that we want the A’s at the O.co Coliseum and want to keep baseball in Oakland,” said Coliseum Authority chairman Nate Miley.

“A ten year extension, lasting through the 2024 season, gives the team a place to a call home and our fans and sponsors a window to continue investing their time and passion in this team."
