Venue Information

The Oracle Arena, also known by its former name of the Oakland Coliseum Arena, (also formerly The Arena in Oakland and Oakland Arena) is an indoor arena in Oakland, California. It was originally constructed as the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena in 1966. Over the years though, the arena became increasingly outdated, lacking the luxuries of newer ones. Rather than building a new arena in Oakland - or, for that matter, in San Francisco or San Jose, as some wanted - the decision was made to proceed with a $121 million renovation that tore down much of the old arena, leaving the external walls, roof and foundation, along with a few other features, intact, and then building a new seating bowl within the older confines, similar to what was done to the KeyArena in Seattle. The renovation began in mid-1996 and was completed in time for the Golden State Warriors to return in the fall of 1997 (they played the intervening season at the San Jose Arena). The new arena seats 19,596 for basketball and 17,000 for ice hockey.
