The Oakland Athletics, an historic MLB franchise and a team that has been long-rumored to be eyeing a relocation to Las Vegas, has reached an agreement to purchase land near the Las Vegas Strip and are seeking to open a new home stadium on the site by 2027, per reports.

The A’s, nine-time World Series winners, have been going through a rough stretch over the last several years, playing in one of the league’s worst ballparks and drawing league-low attendance numbers. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has voiced support for the A’s move out of Oakland, with Vegas’ western geographical location and growing sports market a prime target for relocation.

With the MLB planning to establish in the Vegas sports market, three of the four major American sports leagues will soon be operating in the desert, with many speculating that the NBA could be considering Las Vegas as a potential expansion site for the league as well.

The A’s roster will look drastically different by the time they are fully rebranded as the Las Vegas Athletics, but the team has a long way to go in order to compete at the Major League level. The team has started an abysmal 3-16 to start the 2023 season and will likely see their attendance numbers continue to drop now that the team is moving forward with a land purchase on the Las Vegas Strip.
