The Oracle Arena is situated in Oakland, California. It is the oldest venue among all the NBA games hosting arenas. The Oracle Arena was known as the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena when it was first constructed in 1996 but that name has now evolved into various new names like the Oakland Arena or simply The O. The arena has been called home by the NBA franchise the Golden State Warriors since the year 1971. Other teams like the California Golden Bears have played at The O for two seasons as well while their own arena was being reconstructed.
The Oracle Arena might be standing for our forty years but it has seen its share of reconstruction and renovation to upgrade it to today’s standards. Initially it had a seating capacity of only fifteen thousand which made it one of the smallest venues in the NBA. The authorities had two choices; either go for a new bigger arena or upgrade the current facilities. The latter option was chosen and the renovation work started in 1996. It was completed in time before the 1997 season with an estimated cost of one hundred and twenty one million dollars. During the renovation of the arena the Warriors moved to San Jose for that one season only. The new renovated Oracle Arena had a seating capacity of over nineteen thousand, with a brand new LED scoreboard that hung centrally from the roof.
The Oracle Corporation and the Golden State Warriors announced in 2006 that they had reached an agreement to change the name of the venue to The Oracle but the management will remain the same i-e Oakland-Alameda County Authority (JPA) and SMG. When the announcement was formally made, after the deal being approved by the JPA, the name of the venue was the Oracle Arena.
The Oracle Arena is the oldest venue in the NBA for sure but it hasn’t remained stagnant. The management has made sure it keeps on improving with time and that effort and vision has turned it into a stunning new modern building. Every event hosted at The O like WWE shows, concerts, UFC fights and of course NBA games have attracted fans to buy the Oracle Arena tickets to turn their time there into one memorable experience.
