OAKLAND, CA: The A's are moving to Sacramento from 2025-27, with an option to play there a 4th year. They're planning to be done in Oakland after this season, their 57th in the city, per Evan Drellich of The Athletic.


They will play in Sutter Health Park, with just over 10,000 seats, with grass outfield seats to increase capacity to 14,000. The club also announced that they will have no city affiliated with their name while they play in Sacramento. They'll only be referred to as The Athletics or The A's.


The Triple-A affiliate of the Giants, the Sacramento River Cats, play their home games at Sutter Health Park. It appears that the two teams will use the stadium together for the next three seasons, or at the very least, that a possible deal is being discussed.

 

Athletics owner John Fisher had this to say on the new temporary home of the club..


We're excited to be here for the next three years, playing in this beautiful ballpark. But also, being able to watch some of the greatest players in baseball. Whether they be Athletics players, or Aaron Judge and others, launch home runs out of this very intimate ballpark.

Adding..

We look forward to making Sutter Health Park our home through our move to Las Vegas. We extend our appreciation to the Kings and the City of West Sacramento for hosting the A’s while we work to complete our new ballpark in Las Vegas.
 

The Athletics are a historic franchise in the game of baseball, and seeing their fall from grace is nothing short of remarkable. From being a postseason club just four years ago to now being the laughing stock of the league, the A’s have come a long way.


The fans residing in Oakland have voiced their displeasure in the entire process of the A’s move. From boycotts to just not showing up to games, the Athletics faithful have voiced their opinions strongly.


If there was any question on if the Athletics would actually leave Oakland, all can now be put to rest. The move is happening. Whether or not the baseball world is in favor or not, that’s the reality.


Oakland has seen its fair share of the Athletics’ positives and negatives throughout the 57 years they have called Oakland home. The A’s and their fans will now look forward to Sacramento and Las Vegas in the near future.


The Oakland Coliseum is a place of great history. A venue that has become a shell of its former self. Although the jokes have been never ending on the stadium and its franchise, it’s a sad day for the city of Oakland that is officially losing yet another major sports franchise.
