Location

Blume Arena is located on the east side of the map in Oakland. It is located west of Woodland and southeast of Pacific Renaissance Plaza.

Description

Blume Arena is a large circular arena with an enclosed roof topped by the flags of the in-game basketball team, the Oakland Ohlones. The arena is situated on a small island in Oakland, surrounded by a canal (based on the real-life Lion Creek which leads to the San Leandro Bay). The entrance and exit roads are two ramps on the north side of the island. It has a reasonably sized parking area with a few basketball courts and a tourist kiosk. There is also a large parking area on the south side with a number of coach buses and trucks. There are two restricted areas on the island as well.

Restricted Areas

  • On the southwest side of the island, inside a canal tunnel that runs under the highway, it is guarded by three 580s and a guard dog.
  • On the north side by the entrance ramp, it is guarded by six 580s.

Trivia

  • The arena is sponsored by Blume Corporation, as its name implies.
  • The arena is based on the Oakland Arena in Oakland.
  • The Oakland Ohlones basketball team is based on the real-life Golden State Warriors.
    • Ohlone was the name for the Native Americans who lived in the Northern California region; this is a reference to the Golden State Warriors' use of Native American imagery up until 2009, when it was completely phased out.
    • Despite being based on the Warriors, the Ohlones' logo is more based on that of the Los Angeles Lakers and the older font of the Los Angeles Clippers.
  • During the evening hours, you can hear the sound of a crowd and basketball game from the arena.
  • In real life, there is another stadium, the Oakland Coliseum, located next to Oakland Arena that doesn't appear in the game.
