We came to see the Jays play. We do not get to see many stadiums where we live. This one is older than others we have been to. Because we were wearing the opposing colours the lots of staff picked us out as visitors and made us feel very welcome. They helped us out quite a bit as we were... More

Getting there from SF is easy enough and the atmosphere inside is friendly and welcoming (unlike most soccer stadiums in the UK). Tickets were really cheap too and we all enjoyed the game. However, prices inside are steep and the environs a bit on the rough side and getting through the enclosed walkway from the station means running the gauntlet... More

We enjoyed seeing the a's play against the orioles. Tickets were very reasonable. We didn't like seeing Jason hammel getting shelled and watching the a's lose.

The thing I like about the stadium is watching the Oakland As playing baseball; its lots of fun. The thing I do not like about the stadium is the stadium. Its old; and even the Westside Club which used to be a good experience has changed due to a new vendor taking over the food and beverage service. The Westside... More

The stadium is old and it is crappy. The BART does drop you off at the stadium but it is a hike to the front of the stadium. Believe me on this, you want to go here for the game and the fans. Usually I would avoid the bleacher seats, but for some reason I decided to try them. I... More

Perhaps the only justification for the Coliseum's all around terribleness is that it doubles as a football field during the fall (it's the only field left in the U.S. that does so professionally). As a result there is a whole lot of foul territory, not much to do/see on the concourse and overall, a pretty ugly stadium. Plus Mt. Davis,... More

I have had the joy of visiting baseball stadiums and parks around the nation. I think I have seen about 2/3 of them. The Oakland coliseum is one of the worst, and its made worse by the fact that across the bay, the SF AT&T Park is one of the best! If you buy tickets to watch a game at... More

The area around the O.Co.Coliseum is abandoned buildings and trash and an old community and in need of big time face lift....but that is pointing out the obvious if you have ever been there.They need everything,stadium,scoreboard,seating,better PA system etc.They do have a few good things...great public transportation (Bart and Amtrak and buses ) and once inside they put a good...

Too old. Sound system is always too loud. Food is lousy and way overpriced. Parking is too expensive and poorly designed for easy entrance or exit.

This stadium was built in the 1970s I think and it is definitely showing its age. If you remember it from decades ago, forget it because the Coliseum built "Mt Davis" in the area where the stadium was cut down and you had a great view of Oakland and the hills. Inside you see a very high structural monstrosity. It... More
