Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Athletics vs Giants

Rival Team: San Francisco Giants

Played between the Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants, the Bay Bridge Series is one of the few friendly rivalries in baseball. Because both teams are located in the Bay Area, there are still plenty of bragging rights on the line, yet at the same time with the two teams being in different leagues there is less of an impact on the standings. The fact you’ll find fans of both the A’s and Giants at these matchups makes the Bay Bridge Series an excellent time to attend a game at the Oakland Coliseum.

Athletics vs Angels

Rival Team: Los Angeles Angels

The A’s and their Southern California counterparts have a long-running rivalry that you won’t want to miss. The Angels and A’s rivalry dates back to the 1960s and has been going strong ever since.

Athletics vs Rangers

Rival Team: Texas Rangers

The A’s and Rangers have both been going hard for the AL West crown over the past few years, which has led to the development of a fierce rivalry between the two teams. The A’s edged out the Rangers for the division title in 2012 and 2013 igniting a fierce rivalry between the two. If you want to attend a good matchup, then get tickets when the Rangers come to town.

Athletics vs Royals

Rival Team: Kansas City Royals

The rivalry between the A’s and Royals dates back to the late 1960s when the A’s bolted from Kansas City for Oakland. The two teams also were the dominate teams in the AL West during the 1970s further adding fuel to the rivalry. While the rivalry, may not be running super hot at the moment, there is still lots of bad blood between these two teams.
