As you know, the new field turf system we ordered for Laney ahead of the 2021 USL Championship season was delayed by months due to a combination of factors including the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent shipping delays.
When it was clear that we would be unable to play at Laney until the new turf system was ready, we thoroughly vetted every stadium and sports facility in Oakland and the greater East Bay to explore whether we could play at an alternative venue that accommodates our fans, meets our standards, league requirements, and allows us to continue our USL season. That search is now complete, and we are happy to announce a temporary space for Roots.
As a result of this process, we have decided to take the following steps going forward:
How to Watch:
What if you are a member or single-game ticket buyer for July 10th, 14th, and 17th matches?
Oakland Roots Members, single-game, and group ticket buyers for 7/10, 7/14, and 7/17 will receive seats on the sideline bleachers at Las Positas College. Mosaic and Grove Members will receive seating in the center section (50 yard-line) of the bleachers. Grove Members will also receive access to a private pre-game food experience. If you can’t attend due to the change in venue you will automatically receive a credit to your online ticket account that can be used towards any future Roots ticket purchases. If you would prefer a refund, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also offering a new ticket experience for the games at Las Po. Fans can purchase a ticket for just $5. These tickets feature seating on an elevated grass hill berm located in-stadium. This is a General Admission seating area and is first-come, first-serve. Stay cozy, and make sure to bring a blanket.
