Oakland Coliseum poised to land RingCentral Naming Rights deal

The Oakland Coliseum could soon be renamed the RingCentral Coliseum. Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority is in talks with cloud-based communications firm RingCentral over a naming-rights deal for the Oakland A’s ballpark.

“At this point I am cautiously optimistic that we can get a deal done for the upcoming 2019 baseball season,” Coliseum Authority executive director Scott McKibben said.

Any deal – which is due to be presented to the Coliseum board in March – is likely to be short term. The Oakland Raiders are leaving the arena for Las Vegas and the A’s are planning to possibly open a new ballpark at Howard Terminal in 2023.
