Oakland Arena

The Oakland Arena or whatever corporate name it has now. There are rumors that the Golden State Warriors may leave Oakland for San Francisco.

But the City of San Francisco does not exactly have a good track record for this sort of thing. It took several false starts before AT&T Park happened, and the Niners finally gave up, and are building down here. The reason that the Warriors are in Oakland is San Francisco has been trying to build a new arena for almost 50 years without success. I'm not optimistic about this. The grandstands in Oakland were leveled and rebuilt in 1996, so it's not like the place is outdated.

Was a permanent move to San Jose never an option for the Warriors?

Sadly, no. (I say sadly because I lived about 10 minutes from the arena at the time, and saw about 12 games that year. It was great. I was ready to ship out the Sharks to Oakland so the Warriors could stay.) It was a one year lease, and the Warriors had already signed for 20 years at the rebuilt Coliseum Arena (what everybody actually calls the place) before they even started work. And the new lease in Oakland also called for five two-year extensions.

The real kicker here is the Warriors are paying $7.4 million per year in debt service for the rebuilding of the arena, which would total $222 million. If the team ever chooses to leave after the original 20 years (2017), or after any of the extensions, the current owner of the team would be on the hook for all of the remainder of the $222 million still owed.

So if the Warriors try to jump ship in 2017, they would have to make an immediate cash payment of $74 million to the City of Oakland. That amount would drop by $14.8 million after every two year extension.

Yeah we left the 25,000 earlier this year and will be playing a few seasons in near by Bishop Aucklands 1,000 ground. We would of lost tens of thousands of pounds paying rent for a stadium we had built for use by a former owner who built the stadium for his own ego. We hoping to got another ground for the team which is more fitting for the club has a whole.

No one knows the owners Scott & Sizer have not really said what they are going to do with a 25,000 seater stadium with no team to play in it. They move try and turn it into a concert venue but with Sunderlands "stadium of light" just up the run its going to be hard for anyone to use the arena with a great stadium venue already up and running up a few miles away

Miami has the worst attendance for a new stadium since 1982. A brand new park is sitting 18th in attendance. I don't think that's a misleading photo.

(it's not mine, for what it's worth)
