Interior view of Oakland Arena


The Oakland Arena was opened originally in 1966, and most notable tenant during this time were the Golden State Warriors. However with the Golden State Warriors leaving in 2019 the Arena is perhaps more well known for music concerts and Esports events.

From 2006 – 2019 the Oakand Arena was named the Oracle Arena, but when Golden State Warriors left they took the awesome tech name with them, which is a shame as Oracle Arena just sounds more Esporty than Oakland Arena.
