FOOTBALL INCLUDED IN RENOVATIONS TO OAKLAND COLISEUM
Published March 20, 1995
Oakland Alameda County Coliseum officials "are privately looking" at about $50-70M in renovations to the stadium," according to this morning's SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE. The renovations will be "complete with retractable bleachers" to for both baseball and football. Coliseum Board President George Vukasin said they don't want to "out-renovate" so that they can't "handle football when the 49ers are dissatisfied with Candlestick Park five years from now and they want to move to a newer, more modern facility" (Matier & Ross, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, 3/20).
