"The facility itself is among the worst sporting venues I've ever been at. We sat in the lower bowl, on seats that were basically jerry rigged to the actual stadium concrete. When you'd step on the adjacent stairs, they would creak and bend. That, combined with wet conditions, resulted in at least four slip and falls. Luckily, no one was hurt. Getting into the stadium is a disaster too. We waited 30 minutes in the 'express' bag check line. Worse still were the fans. Rarely have I watched people smoke in crowds with such impunity — cigarettes, blunts, e-cigs, etc. Not only while in line to get in, but literally in the stadium seating. The guy next to us was obliterated-drunk, and kept going back for more. The guy in front of us was eating pistachios and throwing shells at passers by. And there was zero sports etiquette, like waiting to find your seat between plays rather than in the middle. Literally, the worst." — Alexander E. (2018)
This review reads more like a bad experience at a Cypress Hill concert than a ballgame. The Coliseum is routinely rated among the worst in both MLB and the NFL.
The Oakland Raiders will play there for one more season before moving to Las Vegas in 2020. The A's aren't going anywhere.
