Tropicana Field renovation to focus on creating intimacy

The Tampa Bay Rays will look to create a more intimate feel at Tropicana Field in 2019 with a heightened focus on fan experience through the reduction of capacity and the expansion of premium offerings.

The renovation will reduce the venue’s capacity from a little over 31,000 to around 25,000 by eliminating certain upper level seating and replacing that real estate with new premium seating for small groups.

This project was announced following the organization’s decision to abandon plans to build a new stadium. With the Rays ranking ahead of only the Miami Marlins in average attendance, the team hopes this renovation will improve attendance and fan support.
