The arena opened in 1966 as the Coliseum and is the oldest in the NBA. The facility was completely renovated, at a cost of $121 million, in time for the 1997-98 Warriors season, adding 4,000 seats plus luxury suites. Oracle Corporation received a 10-year naming rights deal in 2006. The old Coliseum hosted many teams and events, including the Bay Bombers of roller derby fame, the California Golden Seals of the NHL and the Golden Bay Earthquakes of the MISL. Oracle Arena is adjacent to the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, home of the NFL's Raiders and the Athletics of Major League Baseball.
