  • The A's agreed to a 10-year lease to stay at the Coliseum, but city of Oakland officials are expected to reject the proposed deal.

Oakland officials on the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Joint Powers Authority are today expected to reject a proposed lease agreement that would possibly keep the A's at the Coliseum through 2024, the Bay Area News Group reported.

A's owner Lew Wolff and Major League Baseball announced the new 10-year lease agreement last week.

The four members of Alameda County on the eight-member Joint Powers Authority support the lease, but the city of Oakland's four representatives are expected to shoot it down.

The city wants the A's rent to increase, rather than decrease as it is proposed to do in the current lease agreement.
