Van Gerbig had planned to have the team play in a new arena in [[San Francisco, California|San Francisco]], but the arena never came to fruition, and the Seals played in the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena (now known as [[Oracle Arena]]). While the WHL Seals had drawn well while playing home games at the [[Cow Palace]] in [[Daly City]], just outside [[San Francisco]], the NHL would not allow the Seals to play there, even on a temporary basis. The franchise was named '''California Seals''' in an attempt to appeal to fans from San Francisco, and to address complaints from the other NHL teams that Oakland was not considered a major league city (notwithstanding the presence of the [[American Football League]]'s [[Oakland Raiders]] and the pending relocation of [[Major League Baseball]]'s [[Oakland Athletics|Kansas City Athletics]]) and would not be a draw for fans. The plan failed, however, and on November 6, 1967,<ref>Minneapolis Tribune November 7, 1967, page 24 from an AP story.</ref> Van Gerbig announced that the team's name was being changed to '''Oakland Seals''', although the league did not register the change until December.
