Network Associates Coliseum is home to the following sports teams:
In 1966, the city of Oakland constructed Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum for two reasons: as a new stadium for the Oakland Raiders and also in an effort to lure the Kansas City Athletics to Oakland. In 1968, the Kansas City Athletics became the Oakland Athletics and began play at the new stadium. The Raiders played their first game there on September 18, 1966. The Athletics' first game was played on April 17, 1968. The stadium complex cost $25.5 million to build and rests on 120 acres of land.
In 1972, the Athletics played in their first of three straight World Series. In 1982, the Oakland Raiders moved to Los Angeles, leaving the A's as the only remaining tenants of Oakland Coliseum. In 1989, the venue saw its fourth World Series as Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire of the Oakland A's defeated the San Francisco Giants in the "Bay Bridge" series.
In July 1995, the Los Angeles Raiders agreed to return to Oakland provided that Oakland Coliseum underwent renovations. In November 1995, those renovations commenced and continued until the beginning of the 1996 season.
In September 1997, UMAX Technologies agreed to acquire the naming rights to the stadium, however following a dispute, a court decision reinstated the Oakland Coliseum name. In 1998, Network Associates agreed to pay $5.8 million over five years for the naming rights and the stadium became known as "Network Associates Coliseum," or sometimes, simply, "the Net."
