RingCentral Coliseum naming rights deal confirmed

It’s official – the Oakland Coliseum, home to the NFL’s Oakland Raiders and MLB’s Oakland A’s, will now be named the RingCentral Coliseum.

The three-year agreement was approved by the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority (JPA) Board on May 31 and is subject to formal approval from the MLB.

The funds from the deal, reportedly worth about $1m per year, will go directly to the Joint Powers Authority (JPA) to manage the facility.

JPA vice-chairman and Alameda County supervisor Nate Miley, said: “RingCentral’s sponsorship stands as a testament to the Bay Area’s technology community partnering with important public venues. With this agreement, local taxpayers will receive an important return on their 50-year investment in the stadium.”

New York Stock Exchange-listed RingCentral is a provider of cloud communications solutions and will work closely with the JPA to improve the fan experience at the stadium.

In addition to acquiring the naming rights for the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum, RingCentral is the Official Business Communications Partner for the Oakland A’s.

Under the four-year partnership, signed in April, RingCentral gets marquee branding throughout the facility.

RingCentral is also a Founding Partner of the the Chase Center – the new home of the NBA’s Golden State Warrior, scheduled to open in September 2019 – and a Proud Partner of the NBA’s Detroit Pistons.
