Stadiums that Make the Most of Local Sports
Competitive sports are HUGE in the Tampa Bay area and we’ve got great stadiums that make the most of them—not to mention some pretty spectacular weather and views.
Soccer fans will get a real kick out of the games at Al Lang Stadium on the St. Pete waterfront, home of the Tampa Bay Rowdies soccer club of the USL. If baseball’s more your thing, swing over to Tropicana Field in St. Pete, home to the Tampa Bay Rays. Tip: Try to land a seat behind the backstop, where you’ll be only 50 feet from home plate - and don't miss the chance to see the stingrays in the 10,000 gallon tank just beyond the right-center field fence.
With its Spanish Mediterranean exterior, palm-filled plaza and eats from Frenchy’s Tiki Pavilion, Clearwater’s BayCare Ballpark definitely lets you know you’re in sunny Florida—even when you’re watching the Philadelphia Phillies at spring training. Blue Jays fans call the TD Ballpark their spring home—and can even enjoy a can of Labatt Blue while watching them play.
