The O.co Coliseum is currently home to Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics and their equally talented NFL team, the Oakland Raiders. The O.co Coliseum has had many names throughout the years including Network Associates Coliseum, McAfee Coliseum, and Overstock.com Coliseum.
O.co is part of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum complex, which is comprised of both the stadium and the Oracle Arena. The O.co Coliseum was built for $25.5 million in 1966, but underwent an impressive $200 million renovation beginning in 1996, which was responsible for the 10,000-seat expansion in the upper deck that now spans the outfield during baseball games.
The bluegrass-covered Coliseum contains 6,300 club seats – 2,700 of which are made available for Oakland Athletics games – and 143 luxury suites, 125 of which are available for use during Athletics games. The tentative seating capacity at O.co is 63,026 for football, 35,067 for baseball, and either 47,416 or 63,026 for soccer depending on how the Coliseum is arranged for the event. Historically, it also served as the home to the San Jose Earthquakes of MLS during the 2008-2009 seasons.
In addition to serving as the location for smash Disney hit Angels in the Outfield, other memorable events at the O.co Coliseum include Marvin Gaye recording his live album in the Coliseum in 1974 and Led Zeppelin playing what became their two final North American concerts in 1977.
