Statement From Dave Kaval Regarding Today's Alameda County Board of Supervisors Vote

December 23, 2019

Earlier today, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to sell their fifty percent ownership share of the Oakland - Alameda County Coliseum Complex to the Oakland Athletics.

Statement from Oakland A's President Dave Kaval:

"We are deeply appreciative to Alameda County Board of Supervisors and Alameda County staff for their work on this transaction. We are committed to the long-term success of East Oakland and the Coliseum site, and as a result of this transaction, millions of dollars that were being spent on the Coliseum site can now be repurposed to meet important health and safety needs in Alameda County. We now look forward to creating a mutually beneficial partnership with the City of Oakland."
