OAKLAND-ALAMEDA COUNTY COLISEUM BOARD GRANTS EXTENSION
Published November 16, 1995
The Warriors yesterday got an extension from the Oakland- Alameda County Coliseum Board to decide where they will play next season, according to the S.F. CHRONICLE. The team is in discussions with Coliseum officials to refurbish the facility, and Warriors attorney Robin Baggett said the "discussions are going very well." Details had not been worked out by yesterday (S.F. CHRONICLE, 11/16). The Warriors' discussions with San Jose revealed that city is the Bay Area's "largest and wealthiest market for a professional sports franchise." According to SALES AND MARKETING magazine's annual survey of buying power, San Jose ranks 3rd in the U.S. in percentage of households with income of $50,000+ (Mark Simon, S.F. CHRONICLE, 11/16). In Oakland, Bob Salladay writes that any renovations to the Coliseum could slow construction on the stadium, which would cost up to $10,000 per game, or $1M after 30 days if stadium work is not done by April 1 (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 11/16).
