Oracle Arena

Information About the Oracle Arena

Oracle Arena is a large indoor arena situated in Oakland, California, USA. It has been named the Oakland County Coliseum Arena since 1966 and is commonly called the Oakland Coliseum.

During its first few years, it was referred to as the Oakland Coliseum because of its main tenant, Oakland Raiders. After a major reconstruction done in 1997, it became known as The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, or the Oracle Arena until 2020. The Warriors became the primary tenant of the venue before this, but were unable to hold on due to poor ticket sales. In addition, the NBA relocated its Sacramento Kings from Oakland to Sacramento.

In 2020, after two major renovations done by Golden State Warriors, it was called the Oakland-Alameda County Arena. In addition, it became the home of the NBA D-League’s Reno Bighorns for the 2020-10 season.

For the 2020-08 NBA season, Oracle Arena was renamed the Oracle Arena after Oracle Corporation, the owner of the Warriors and a major sponsor of the venue. For the 2020-9 NBA season, Oracle replaced its previous sponsor, the Golden State Warriors. The company announced that its sponsorship of the arena had ended and that it would instead be sponsored by Visa.

The Warriors, who had previously been the main tenant of the arena, are now going to play there under the name of the Warriors Classic. The Oakland Coliseum has hosted the annual NBA All-Star Game, which is one of the most attended events of the basketball season. As well, the Oracle Arena has hosted some major sporting events, including the Super Bowl XVIII, the NBA All-Star Game, and the College World Series. It also hosted the NBA Rookie/Sophomore Game for the 2020-08 season.

Because of its unique location, Oracle is one of the most sought after arenas when it comes to hosting sporting events. This is mainly because of its proximity to the San Francisco Bay, the Oakland Hills, and Oakland International Airport. It can also be accessed from San Francisco by taking a Muni bus or taxi.

There is an additional parking garage near the Oracle Arena that allows visitors to park their vehicles outside the arena. The parking is free and is located onsite, close to the arena entrance. When visiting the Oracle Arena, you can take shuttle buses to and from the Oakland Coliseum or you can use your own car.

The Oracle Arena also features many of the amenities needed for an event to be held. It has large auditoriums where guests can listen to live music. And see various sporting events on large screens. It even has a VIP section that seats more than 400 people. It also has a luxury club area for corporate events, which is available upon request.

In terms of food, there is a restaurant named the “Dunkin’ Donuts Cafe.” It is located in the northwest portion of the arena, and is open twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. The restaurant serves its famous chocolate glazed doughnuts. The cafe is only open during regular business hours and closes at least one hour prior to events.
