About Oakland Athletics

The Oakland Athletics are an American professional baseball team based in Oakland, California. The Athletics compete in the MLB as a member club of the American League (AL) West Division. The team plays its home games at the Oakland Coliseum. The nine World Series championships, fifteen pennants, and seventeen division titles that the A's have won throughout their history is the second highest in the American League after the New York Yankees.

One of the American League's eight charter franchises, the team was founded in Philadelphia in 1901 as the Philadelphia Athletics. They won three World Series championships, and back-to-back titles in 1929 and 1930. The team left Philadelphia for Kansas City in 1955 and became the Kansas City Athletics before moving to Oakland in 1968. They won three consecutive World Series in 1972, 1973, and 1974. After being sold by Finley to Walter A. Haas Jr., the team won three consecutive pennants and the 1989 World Series. In 2002, the Athletics set the record for most consecutive wins in a season with twenty, an event that would go on to be the pioneering step in the application of sabermetrics in baseball.

Following the California Golden Seals' relocation to Cleveland in 1976, the Golden State Warriors' move across the bay to San Francisco in 2019, and the Oakland Raiders' move to Las Vegas in 2020, the Athletics were left as the sole remaining professional sports team in Oakland. However, on April 20, 2023, the Athletics announced they had entered a land purchase agreement with Red Rock Resort located near Las Vegas, Nevada to build a new ballpark on the Las Vegas Strip, finalizing the Athletics plans to relocate from Oakland and move to the Las Vegas Valley. On May 9, 2023, the Athletics switched their planned location in the Las Vegas area to the site of the Tropicana Las Vegas hotel and casino. On November 16, 2023, MLB owners unanimously approved the Athletics' request to relocate to the Las Vegas area.
