"The price of a season suite may fluctuate depending on when it’s purchased, which adds to the excitement," said A’s President Dave Kaval. "We invite our fans to become the first bitcoin suite holders in sports."
Kaval also said private suites are a way for groups of six to socially distance themselves at a time when current state health guidelines are limiting stadium seating to two and four pods. The bitcoin offer ends on April 1, according to the release.
