Switch Up Your Seat

CoolToday Park has 8,000 seats – 6200 fixed and 1800 berm (general admission) seats – but the Braves and designer Fawley Bryant Architecture don’t want to keep you there very long. A spacious concourse walkway wraps around the entire stadium with numerous drink rails installed so fans can feel free to stop and watch a few at bats from almost anywhere

“We want people to navigate,” says Mike Dunn, V.P. of Florida Operations for the Braves. “We want them to be able to watch from center field, watch from right field, down the lines.”

The two-level seating in the park also features Two luxury suites, and a 1st and 3rd base special-ticketed terrace with access to air-conditioned space, a full service bar, and 650 seats. There are also several sponsored areas to watch the game from; some are free and some are more expensive than a regular ticket, but worth it!

  • Coca-Cola Corner – a grassy berm area stretching from the left field foul line to left-center. Let those kids run around while you sit on your own chair or blanket. Be sure to pack glove too!

  • Budweiser Bench – Group seating area next to the grassy berm and below the scoreboard in left-center field. A popular home run spot!

  • Right Field Patio – a concourse level group area behind the right field wall.

  • Centauri Super Suite – Sit right at field level behind the wall in right center field and next to the bullpen. These seats will also be a hospitality area for a one-of-a-kind game experience.

  • Left Field Lounge – Group seating with service from a specialty menu. Yum!

The Sarasota County-owned facility isn’t just for preseason baseball. With 7 fields across 90 acres of complex, visitors can make good use of the facility any time of year during concerts, markets and other local events in the works.

“This is beyond just a baseball stadium,” says 2019 Sarasota County Commission Chair Charles Hines. “This is a community complex that will have open fields and use by the community.”
