Stadium Information

About Tropicana Field:

Tropicana Field opened almost 10 years before the Rays (then Devil Rays) became a franchise. The city of St Petersburg hoped to attract a Major League Baseball franchise as a result of building the stadium beforehand. The small size and the slanted dome make this a unique facility worth checking out the next time you are in Florida.

Tour Info:

A variety of tour options are available. Please visit for tour information.

Security Screenings:

Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium.  Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside.  Pat down searches may be required.

Bag Policy:

Bags larger than 16" x 16" x 8" are prohibited with the exception of medical bags and diaper bags. All bags are subject to search.

Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.

Love the Rays! The stadium is old but we'll maintained with great sight lines. Concessions have good food and the unlimited soft drink cups are a value!...
