Lyou Oakland Athletics think they are looking for a new home with the support of MLB, a measure that could serve to find a state where to play or that the owners give the green light for a new stadium.
According to information from Jeff Passan, the team got tired of waiting for approval of the construction of the new stadium at Howard Terminal, downtown Oakland waterfront location.
“The future success of the Atléticos depends on a new stadium. Oakland is a great baseball city, and we will continue our waterfront stadium project. We will also follow the lead of MLB to explore other markets “, Athletics owner John Fisher said in a statement.
The The idea put forward by the team is that a project of one billion dollars be done in a development that would include 3,000 affordable housing units, offices and commercial premises, as well as a hotel.
The Athletics’ lease at RingCentral Coliseum runs through 2024, and reconstruction at the coliseum site, which some consider a possibility, “is not a viable option for the future vision of baseball,” the league said in a statement.
