L-R: Dom, Hannah and Matt, 2019 in London

Our History

The Oakland A’s UK group started out in 2017. Three UK-based A’s fans – Dom, Hannah and Matt – had been tweeting to each other during A’s games for many years and finally decided that the A’s deserved a Twitter account for UK fans. So we started one!

However, you can’t just have a Twitter account, can you? So, next came a Facebook group, an Instagram account, a YouTube channel and a podcast. And, of course, this blog.

We’re an unofficial fans group that has grown into a great community over the past few years, bringing together A’s fans from across the UK, Ireland and many other countries too.

We’re also extremely fortunate that plenty of A’s fans in Oakland love the fact that a bunch of us from the UK stay up all hours following their team from across the pond. In 2020, the sadly fan-free Coliseum had three A’s UK banners hanging in the bleachers all season long thanks to our friends putting them up for us. Another special design is in production and hopefully will be on display in the 2021 season too.

This blog is designed to be a writing forum where we can provide game reviews and comment on the latest A’s news, whilst also bringing together content from our other social media channels.

If you would like to get in contact with us, just use the Contact Us form and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
