MLB’s Oakland A’s selling season suites for one Bitcoin

Major League Baseball franchise Oakland Athletics is allowing fans to purchase full season suites for the 2021 regular season for one Bitcoin, or $64,800.

The suites seat six, which adheres to California guidelines, and include snacks and access to a private restroom.

General stadium seating is limited to fans in pods of two or four, due to current COVID-19 rules, with suites providing an option for groups larger than four.

The Oakland Coliseum will be able to hold 20-per-cent capacity to start the season.

Six-person private suites for individual games at the 63,132-capacity ballpark are also on sale now for $594 for select April games.

“We invite our fans to become the first Bitcoin suite holders in sports,” A’s president Dave Kaval said.

“We’re excited to be one of a handful of teams to accept cryptocurrency for payment and the first to price tickets in crypto instead of US currency. The price of a season suite may fluctuate depending on when it’s purchased, which adds to the excitement!”

Fans can purchase a full season six-person suite for one Bitcoin until April 1.

Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency, hit an all-time high of $61,557 each on Saturday afternoon.
