Oakland Athletics started this petition to Oakland City Council and

Oakland is our home.

Together, we’ve shared so many memories at Coliseum, but the Coliseum is at the end of its useful life. We need a new home in Oakland. 

We have a bold vision for a waterfront ballpark at Howard Terminal

We’ve spent the last 3 years in pursuit of this goal. This project means more than just a ballpark for us and Oakland. Waterfront access, parks, housing for Oaklanders, union jobs, and countless community benefits.

We’ve hosted 200+ community meetings as part of a first-of-its-kind race & equity-driven community benefits process.

Our community work is in every corner of the Town: education, youth sports, food insecurity, homelessness, environmental justice, and more.

We are prepared to make even more significant investments in Oakland, for the residents & community. Today, we publicly release our financial offer to the City and Community.

A’s Development Agreement Term Sheet 

  • The Oakland Athletics will privately finance a $1B+, architecturally significant and state of the art ballpark on Oakland’s waterfront at Howard Terminal.
  • The Oakland Athletics will fully fund all on-site project costs through private financing and project-generated revenues, including public parks, protection against sea level rise, and environmental remediation.
  • The Oakland Athletics will commit to using unionized labor in the construction of the Ballpark Project and the operation of the ballpark.
  • The Oakland Athletics will earmark $450M of project-generated revenue to be used for community benefits, such as affordable housing.  The City of Oakland and the community will direct how those funds are spent.
