Oakland Coliseum

"Not bad, but not fantastic"

Seat Review From Section 116, Row 16, Seat 14
May 2014

Comments

These are some of the best seats in the stadium. Right behind homeplate, good elevation and Row 16 is only the 4th row up above the premium club seats. If you don't have a dude with a giant melon in front of you like I did, your view is gonna be pretty good. The net behind homeplate will bother some because it doesn't provide a "pure" view, but many probably won't notice.

I expected a lot more out of these seats, considering the price tag. The nearest bathroom was more than 6 sections away -- are you kidding me!?!? That was just unbelievable. I can't imagine what it's like during a Raiders game at halftime when every tailgater rushes to the few and far between bathrooms. Fortunately, there are very few people at the A's game and going between innings resulted in no wait.

Besides for the long walk to the bathrooms -- and the long walk up the stairs just to get to the concourse -- looking left or right and high up to see the world's smallest screen is awful. The scoreboard lights are faded, so you can't tell if someone's hitting .858 or .353. And I guarantee you that your local sports bar features a larger television than the screens at the Coliseum.

The best thing about the seats was the cheesesteak. It is really fantastic, and a good size sandwich. I highly recommend grabbing one. Also, the cinnamon twists from the pizza stand are ten times better than the churro and you get so much that I couldn't even finish all of them. Finally, the beer options are plentiful and pretty solid nearby.

These are probably among the best seats in the stadium, so I don't know what else I'd recommend. But just don't expect a ton if you sit here.

Best for... watching the game, impressing a guest
