No Sponsor Forthcoming for Busy Oakland Arena

July 27, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

The city of Oakland and Alameda County cannot find a company to sponsor the Oakland Arena, even though it is the busiest major indoor arena in the state.

The city and county are struggling to pay off $140 million spent on renovations five years ago.

Sports marketers blame the inability to find a sponsor on the venue's being 30 years old and the poor record of the NBA's Warriors.
