The Oakland Athletics reportedly will be moving to Las Vegas.
The Athletics’ relocation to Sin City has been unanimously approved by Major League Baseball owners, according to multiple reports Thursday morning. The franchise will begin its tenure in Las Vegas in 2028.
The lease at Oakland Coliseum is set to expire after the 2024 MLB season. According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, the Athletics are expected to play in a variety of stadiums thereafter, including at the Giants’ ballpark in San Francisco and the franchise’s Triple-A site in Summerlin, Nevada.
The Athletics’ relocation to Las Vegas marked the first relocation since 2005.
