Located on the southwest portion of the University of Florida campus adjacent to Dizney Stadium, the Florida Gators’ new $65 million ballpark has completed.
The project features a 360-degree open concourse, a shade structure for fans, modern student-athlete and staff amenities, multiple seating and game experience options, high-definition video and sound, enhanced concession space, and prominent entry gates. The ballpark also features GRECO handrails, guardrails, scoreboard ladders, drink rails, and glass and picket railings throughout.
Student-athletes will have a private nutrition area/team lounge, film/team meeting room, expanded locker room, indoor pitching and batting cages, and a training and rehabilitation area. Staff, meanwhile, will have individual office space for all coaches and a lobby/reception area celebrating the program’s accomplishments.
Between the permanent seating options, grass berms, and non-traditional seating options, the park has a capacity of more than 7,000 with the ability to add seating for up to 10,000. Chairback seating options are available for over 4,000 fans with over 700 fans able to enjoy club seating.
The Gators’ first season in the new ballpark is slated to begin in 2021.
