Attending a Rays Game at Charlotte Sports Park

The Charlotte Sports Park has undergone an extensive renovation and is the spring home of the Tampa Bay Rays. The site is located approximately 75 miles south of Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

The state-of-the-art facility contains 5,000 fixed seats, and has additional berm seating and party areas. A new suite level and group areas have been added and a unique 360-degree baseball boardwalk rings the stadium. Follow the boardwalk to leftfield and you'll find a Tiki Bar, where fans can sip a cold beverage, catch up with friends and still keep the game in view. Charlotte Sports Park is also a family-friendly ballpark, there is a Kids Clubhouse zone that contains separate play areas for tots and youth, and a concession stand just for kids. The facility is a mode of sustainability, and features an educational green roof and Florida-friendly landscaping.

In addition to spring training games, the facility houses the state-of-the-art Rays training complex, which includes a new clubhouse, five full fields and one-half field. It is home to extended spring training for the Rays, and the Rays Florida State League Team, the Charlotte Stone Crabs

The renovations to the Charlotte Sports Park were financed by contributions from Charlotte County, the State of Florida and the Rays. While the Rays will have exclusive access during spring training, this facility is truly a park within a park, and the County will use the venue throughout the year for concerts, youth sports, recreation and community events.
