TicketCity's Oakland Coliseum Seating Recommendation
With unusually tall walls in the outfield corners of Oakland Coliseum, the best sections for a panoramic view of the field are 214-220. These seats are a good balance between being close to the action and having a Birdseye view, as well as being able to see down either base line.

Athletics vs. Angels
One of the growing rivalries in MLB, these AL West opponents have seen their rivalry get more and more contested in the last two decades. Northern California vs. Southern California is a rivalry that has been at the top of the AL West for over 40 years, with both teams winning numerous division titles and five World Series titles between them. Although often overshadowed by the Giants vs. Dodgers rivalry, this matchup is between two of the top teams in the AL year in and year out.
Athletics vs. Yankees
This is another rivalry that is often overlooked, but it really shouldn't be. If you count the 5 World Series titles the A's won before moving to Oakland, they have won the 2nd most titles in the AL, only trailing the Yankees. These are also the only two teams to win 3 World Series titles in a row (Yankees have done it 3 times). While these two clubs differ drastically in many categories, they have one thing in common, winning.
Athletics vs. Giants
Known as the Bay Bridge Series, this rivalry between Bay area neighbors is everything that's right with interleague play. Since the inception of interleague play in 1997, this has been an annual series and the two teams have gone back in forth for supremacy in the rivalry. More often than not they have finished tied at the end of the season, a fitting statistic for two historic and greatly successful clubs. As competitive as this series is, it is always cordial and one of the better displays of sportsmanship in baseball.
Oakland Athletics in the World Series, American League Championship Series and MLB Playoffs
The Oakland Athletics have used the last 40+ years building a history that not many baseball teams can match. The A's built a dynasty during the 1970s with a “three-peat” from the years 1972-1974. Oakland once against took the baseball world by storm in the late 1980s winning three straight AL pennants. The A's were led by manager Tony La Russa and the “Bash Brothers” Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco. Oakland won the 1989 World Series during that stretch and has won their division over 15 times throughout their history. The A's won two AL West titles in 2012-2013, and reach the MLB postseason 3 years in a row.

What are good places to eat before an A's game?
There are a few great barbeque places close to Oakland, we recommend trying Ribs and Things, or Bay Area BBQ Championship. For great Mexican food that is quick and easy before the game try Estrellas De Sinaloa. If you enjoy sausages, hot dogs, or hot links don't miss trying Grilled Links/ Hot Dogs Booth. Chubby Freeze has great burgers and soft serve and is perfect for picking something up on the way to the game. There are a ton of great street vendors in the area. Las Rancherita Taco, and El Jalicience Taco Truck are two of the best.

Oakland is surrounded by great parking options. Just to the north of the stadium is the A Lot which offers the largest amount of parking in area. To the west of Lot A is Lot D which also has a large amount of parking and is often a few dollars cheaper.
