The Oakland A’s are seriously considering moving the team due to a dispute with the city and fans aren’t happy about it.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, The A’s are threatening to relocate to another town if the city of Oakland doesn’t approve a $12 billion plan this summer to build them a new waterfront stadium in Downtown Oakland.

“The future success of the A’s depends on a new ballpark,” A’s owner John Fisher said in a statement. “Oakland is a great baseball town, and we will continue to pursue our waterfront ballpark project. We will also follow MLB’s direction to explore other markets.”

Fans weren’t happy with the team’s relocation threats considering the A’s have run a “rooted in Oakland” campaign for the past few years.
