We all know the Oakland Athletics are attempting to relocate to Las Vegas.

And if things go according to plan, they could be in their new Sin City stadium as early as 2028. But the team will need a temporary home because their lease at the Coliseum concludes at the end of the 2024 MLB season.

In an interview with Howard Stutz of The Nevada Independent, A’s President Dave Kaval said there are options, one of which is across the Bay.

Kaval said it’s most likely between another return to the Coliseum, Summerlin or sharing the San Francisco Giants’ Oracle Park in San Francisco.

“I think those are the three most likely scenarios and how that plays out,” Kaval said. “That’s something [Major League Baseball] is running point on.”

Summerlin is the home of the Oakland A’s Triple-A affiliate team, the Las Vegas Aviators. In the same article, Kaval notes if the A’s share the field with their Triple-A team, changes would have to be made to the stadium to accommodate a major league club.

Where do Oakland Athletics relocation plans stand?

Plans to relocate accelerated this year when the organization changed direction after years of trying to work with the city of Oakland and a new stadium at Howard Terminal and announced multiple binding agreements with Las Vegas properties.

Ultimately, the team landed a spot at the Tropicana where a $1.5 billion, nine-acre stadium is expected to be built. The ballpark, which was granted $380 in public funding for construction earlier this summer, would include a retractable roof and roughly 30,000 seats.

The next move for relocation to become official is approval from 75% of  MLB owners. If the A’s relocate, they’d be the first team to move since the Montreal Expos became the Washington Nationals in 2005.

Las Vegas would be the fourth home for the franchise. The team originates from Philadelphia where they played from 1901-1954. The Athletics then moved to Kansas City until 1968, when they relocated to Oakland. The A’s have been looking to either update or move out of the Oakland Coliseum for years.
