Oakland A's to Play Three Seasons at 14K-Seat Sutter Health Park in Sacramento

Andy Berg Headshot

The MLB's Oakland A's announced this week that Sutter Health Park, the 14,000-seat home of the MiLB Sacramento River Cats, will serve as home for the Athletics for the 2025-2027 seasons ahead of the team's planned to move to Las Vegas in 2028. 

The plan means this season will be the team's last at Oakland Coliseum, where the A's have played 57 years. 

Sutter Health Park is in the city of West Sacramento, across the Tower Bridge just west of the State Capitol.

"We explored several locations for a temporary home, including the Oakland Coliseum. Even with the long-standing relationship and good intentions on all sides in the negotiations with Oakland, the conditions to achieve an agreement seemed out of reach," said A's owner and managing partner John Fisher in a prepared statement. "We understand the disappointment this news brings to our fans, as this season marks our final one in Oakland. Throughout this season, we will honor and celebrate our time in Oakland, and will share additional details soon.

"We extend our appreciation to the Kings and the City of West Sacramento, and look forward to making Sutter Health Park our home until our new ballpark opens in Las Vegas."  

According to CBS News, the announcement was made jointly with the Sacramento Kings, the majority owner of the Sacramento River Cats which play at Sutter Health Park. Later Thursday morning, Fisher spoke at a press conference at the ballpark to make the announcement official.

"I just want to say how excited I am to be here in West Sacramento, in Sutter Health Park celebrating a momentous day for this community and a momentous day for our 123-year-old franchise," said Fisher.

A's executives visited the ballpark on Wednesday, a day after negotiations with the City of Oakland to extend their lease at Oakland Stadium fell through. 

"Oakland offered a deal that was fair to the A's and was fiscally responsible for our city, said Oakland Mayor Sheng Thao in a statement. "We wish the A's the best and will continue our conversations with them on facilitating the sale of their share of Coliseum site. The City of Oakland will now focus on advancing redevelopment efforts at the Coliseum."

In November MLB owners case their vote supporting the team's move to Las Vegas.
