RingCentral Coliseum (previously McAfee Coliseum, Oakland Coliseum, and Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum) is home to the Oakland Athletics MLB team at 7000 Joe Morgan Wy, Oakland, California 94621. The bag policy at the A’s ballpark is that any bags larger than 16 “X16″ X8” can’t enter the stadium. That means any other bag, like a backpack, small purse, medical bag, or tote bag, that does not exceed that limit can enter the stadium.
Here is the complete Ringcentral Coliseum bag policy for your next Major League Baseball game.
How Does RingCentral Coliseum Review Your Bag?
There are metal detectors that fans must go through before attending an Athletics game. If you come to the stadium with a bag, it will go through a separate metal detector line and have the stadium security official review it. During the inspection, the stadium security official will inspect the inside, outside, and any items inside the bag to ensure they can enter the ballpark. If any issues arise with the bag or objects, they won’t be allowed inside the stadium.
Are you looking to bring a bag to the Oakland Coliseum for a baseball game or event? Consider purchasing a clear single-compartment bag that doesn’t exceed the size requirements. Also, fans can bring other bags into the venue for a baseball game or event.
- ADA bags
- Medical bags
- A clear plastic bag
- Bags that don’t exceed the bag size limit of 16″ X 16″ X 8″
- A clear tote bag/drawstring bag that does not exceed 16″ X 16″ X 8″
- A small purse/clutch
- It is worth noting that there are exceptions that can be made at the gate for individual cases
What Items Can’t You Bring into the Oakland Athletics Ballpark?
Fans coming to the Oakland A’s ballpark must familiarize themselves with the prohibited items list to avoid any issues at the gate entrance. Some of the most common items that fans can’t bring into the stadium are below. However, consider visiting the official prohibited items list before going to your next game to see if the list updates.
- Hard coolers
- Alcoholic beverages
- Portable chairs
- Selfie sticks
- Weapons of any kind
- Laser pointers
- Any non-service-animal
What Should You Do If Your Bag Is Too Big to Enter the Oakland Coliseum?
If your bag is too large to enter the arena, Gate D of the venue has a bag check area. The bag check area allows fans to store their bags before entering the stadium. This area at Gate D will stay open until about 20 minutes after the game’s final pitch and opens up in the seventh inning. Leaving your bags at Gate D is the best option for fans who took the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) to the game and don’t have a car to leave their stuff in.
Parking Tips and Food Guide for an Oakland A’s Game
Fans will find plenty of vacant parking lot spots to park in for an A’s game since the attendance at the venue is low. Check out the complete RingCentral Coliseum Parking guide to learn more.
Fans can bring outside food and drinks into the A’s stadium for a game. The outside food should only be for individual consumption for that fan, and the drink should be in a factory-sealed bottle that contains water.
