I was surprised to see this with all of the talk of a new stadium…but it sounds like it’s going to be cool!
So…what’s the deal? The Tampa Bay Rays just announced their plans for improvements and renovations for Tropicana Field?? Aren’t they moving the team? Guess I can’t understand why they would spend the money?
So, They are getting rid of the third level and they will reduce the seating capacity to create a more “intimate, entertaining and appealing” experience for fans visiting the park to take in a baseball game.
The seating capacity will be reduced to an estimated 25,000 to 26,000 with the elimination of the upper deck. Tropicana Field has had a seating capacity of 31,042.
Since 2005, the Rays have invested more than $50 million in Tropicana Field, including more than $15 million in the last two years.
Season ticket holders will get to check out the renovations at Fan Fest on February 9, 2019. If you are a season ticket holder who purchased seats in the upper level for the 2019 season, you’ll be able to relocate to an upgraded section.
