Overstock.com Buys Rights To Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

Overstock.com has purchased the naming rights of Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, the home of the Oakland Raiders and Athletics.

The multi-purpose stadium will now be called the Overstock.com Coliseum … for now.

The website is in the process of rebranding itself as O.com, which means the stadium’s name could change at any time.

With the Raiders and Athletics leases both expiring in 2013, Overstock.com is allowed to opt out of their deal if either franchise leaves town.
