Oakland A’s first MLB team to accept Dogecoin for tickets

The Oakland Athletics has continued its engagement with cryptocurrency by becoming the first Major League Baseball (MLB) team to sell tickets in exchange for Dogecoin.

The A’s announced on Monday that they would once again offer fans the chance to purchase game tickets at RingCentral Coliseum using cryptocurrency. Fans were offered a two-seat pod in the Plaza Infield for 100 Dogecoin for the May 3-6 series versus the Toronto Blue Jays. 

Earlier this year, the A’s made full-season suites available for one Bitcoin, becoming the first MLB team to price a ticket offering in cryptocurrency. Following Monday’s announcement, A’s president Dave Kaval tweeted that the tickets on offer were soon snapped up, adding that the club had “just processed (the) first Dogecoin transaction” in MLB history.
