A's Adding Three New Premium Areas To Oakland Coliseum
The A's are adding three new premium areas with tables, plush seating and theater boxes at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum for '19. The team also is renovating and rebranding outfield premium hospitality areas with new tables and drink rails for socializing fans. A’s COO Chris Giles said the team needs some new premium offerings. “We will be sold out of our other premium products,” Giles said. He added the new and renovated areas show fans the type of premium and social seating the team will have at its planned and long-desired new ballpark. “All of these are really done as an opportunity for testing what we are doing for the new ballpark,” Giles said. The new premium areas are all in the lower level of the Coliseum and include 18 four-person tables in an area called The Terrace, 32 pairs of plush "Lounge Seats" and another new area called the Coppola Theater Boxes. The latter is branded after Napa Valley’s Francis Ford Coppola Winery and features premium boxes that seat four to six fans. Giles said the new areas, which will all have in-seat ordering, are being built out where there is existing traditional seating. Pricing is still being finalized. The A’s also are rebranding two outfield premium hospitality areas. The right field lower-level terrace area will be called the Hero Deck and feature table seating. Its left field counterpart will become a 250-person area called Oak Landing and have drink rails for socially focused fans. Construction will start after the end of the Raiders season.
