Extra stadium info – Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum
The construction costs of the venue, which is used for various events, were $25 million. It hosted its first-ever football match for the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2009. The Major League Baseball side Oakland Athletics use the Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum for home games. The Athletics played their first match at the stadium in 1968. A book of Michael Lewis chronicles the 2002 Oakland Athletics season, in which the Athletics became American League West champions. It is focussed on William Beane’s approach to managing the Oakland Athletics under significant financial constraints compared with most Major League Baseball clubs. In 2011, Columbia Pictures released a movie named Moneyball. It is based on Lewis’ book. The world famous actor William Bradley Pitt played the role of Beane.
