The Athletics today have released the first renderings of the Club’s proposed new ballpark in Las Vegas.
Sitting on nine acres at the Tropicana site, the ballpark will feature a variety of seating options, a partially retractable roof, and a fan capacity of 30,000, making it one of the most intimate settings in Major League Baseball. The orientation of the playing surface will allow for the outfield to open to the corner of Tropicana and Las Vegas Boulevard.
The state-of-the-art venue will be a hub for sports, entertainment, and community engagement, hosting A’s games along with a diverse range of events, concerts, and community gatherings.
The design pays homage to the rich history of the Athletics as well as the unique spirit of Las Vegas.
The plan will feature innovative architecture, sustainability and environmental consciousness, and modern amenities that focus on the peak of excellence in fan experience.
“From the minute we stepped onto the Tropicana site nearly two years ago, it was immediately obvious what a fantastic fit it would be for a new A’s ballpark in Las Vegas,” said A’s director of design and owner of Schrock KC Architecture, Brad Schrock. “The natural orientation of the ballpark creates not only some of the best views and connection to the Las Vegas skyline from the seating bowl but also opens up the ballpark to the corner in a way that creates opportunities for an amazing energetic public space with open and expansive views into the ballpark.”
A’s President Dave Kaval said: “We are excited to share our vision for the A’s potential new home. As our first conceptual design, we will continue to refine the look and feel of the ballpark over the next year. We hope our project goes beyond a traditional ballpark and serves as a catalyst for community development and engagement. It follows in the footsteps and success of the professional sports teams that come before us, in creating union jobs, stimulating economic growth, and fostering investments in the community.
Thanks to the vision of Bally’s and GLPI, we have the opportunity to bring baseball to one of the most energetic locations in Las Vegas. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the Nevada Governor, Legislative leaders, Clark County Commissioners, and the Southern Nevada community as we move forward with plans on our new home.”
