A's announce plans to remove tarps for ALCS


OAKLAND, Calif. – The Oakland Athletics have announced the team will remove the tarps and open up the west side of the third deck of O.co Coliseum for any American League Championship Series home games.

“This has been a sensational year for the Athletics and for our fans,” said Lew Wolff, owner and managing partner of the team.  “We are thrilled with the tremendous outpouring of fan support.”

Based on increasing ticket sales after each post-season game and ticket sales projections for the ALCS, the A’s have opened 11,698 new seats for sale, priced at $55 each.  American League Championship Series tickets will continue to be priced dynamically so fans are encouraged to buy early and save.  Total capacity for the ALCS and World Series will now be 47,505 seats.

The tarps will remain off for the rest of this post season.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.oaklandathletics.com/postseason, by calling 877-493-BALL (2255) or visiting the Coliseum box office.
