What You'll Get
Much like the New Deal, the Big Gulp, and ownership of the moon, baseball helped make America the great nation it is today. Salute our national pastime with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a Plaza Level ticket to one of two available '80s weekend Oakland Athletics dates against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (a $24 value).
When you click “Buy,” you'll be redirected to OaklandAthletics.com. Use the coupon code on this page to buy the deal at the Groupon price. Purchase one or more Plaza Level tickets to your choice of the following games:
The double-header on Saturday, July 16, at 1:05 p.m.
The regular game on Sunday, July 17, at 1:05 p.m.
Celebrating a fondness for the '80s due to their 1989 World Series win, the Oakland Athletics give fans an opportunity to witness deft ball catches and dramatic base swipes. Visitors can witness outfield-wall-scaling robberies and impromptu pickle scrimmages from the Oakland Coliseum's Plaza Level seats. Boasting a 35,067-person capacity for baseball games and a 500-person capacity for championship thumb-wrestling bouts, the Coliseum features a lush natural-bluegrass surface and a spacious foul territory that baits pop-up outs, making it one of the most pitcher-friendly parks in Major League Baseball. This year, left fielder Josh Willingham, leads the team's hitting stats with 11 homers and 44 RBI over 241 at-bats, and All-Star southpaw Gio Gonzalez rules the pitching staff, logging 111 strikeouts and a svelte 2.47 ERA over 113 innings.
With today's Groupon, guests can help the A's battle their cross-state rivals with thunderous applause and gale-force performances of the wave. Fans who attend the July 16 game will enjoy a double-header, and those who purchase a July 17 ticket score a free MC Hammer bobblehead, which will inspire the team to round the bases running man-style as the crowd celebrates '80s weekend.
Note on ticket fees: A convenience charge of $2 is applied to each ticket, and a $4.25 processing fee is applied to each order, as well as any applicable delivery fees.
