Ring Central buys Oakland Coliseum naming rights

The home venue for the Oakland Raiders and Oakland Athletics is now called the Ring Central Coliseum.

The Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Authority approved the sale of the naming rights to the California-based communications firm for $1 million per year for three years, with an option to renew for a fourth year, the East Bay Times reported Saturday.

The Las Vegas-bound Raiders will play their home games in Oakland in 2019 and have an option to remain there in 2020 if their new facility in Nevada isn't finished.

The Raiders and A's will not receive any of the money from the naming rights deal, with the full amount going to the Coliseum Authority, per the report.

An Oakland city councilman told the East Bay Times that temporary Ring Central signs will be erected at the Coliseum as early as next week.
