Oracle Arena - Oakland, CA

The Oracle Arena claims the title of oldest venue in the NBA—it first opened its doors in 1966. The NBA's Golden State Warriors have called the arena home since 1971. Besides the Warriors, the stadium has been the home to several other Bay Area collegiate and professional teams, such as the WHL's California Seals, the University of California's Golden Bears and the ABA's Oakland Oaks. It's also hosted a number of concerts, including performances by Chance the Rapper, Blink-182 and Kanye West. The Grateful Dead played the venue 66 times throughout their history, making it their most frequent stop.

The venue is south of Oakland just off of Interstate 880. It sits right next to the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. Parking onsite is available, but it tends to sell out well in advance of events. The BART and Amtrak networks also service the stadium via Coliseum Station.

Tailgating at the arena is permitted and encouraged. The Warriors traditionally hold a free, team-sponsored tailgate before every home playoff game. Inside the arena, fans will find a diverse mix of concessions. There aren't many alternate dining options outside the complex, so fans typically hit the tailgate or concession stands or eat before the event.

Before fans can enter the venue, they must pass a security checkpoint. Prohibited items include backpacks or large bags, outside food and beverages, hard-sided containers, noisemakers and professional photography equipment. Items like binoculars, medical supplies and cameras with lenses shorter than 3 inches are fine to bring along.
