Yankee Stadium Information

Yankee Stadium in The Bronx, New York, is home to the MLB franchise, the New York Yankees, and one of the most well known ballpark stadiums in the U.S. Yankee Stadium is fairly new, having opened in 2009, and sits across the street from the original Yankee Stadium which was used from 1923 to 2008. The groundbreaking ceremonies for Yankee Stadium commenced on August 16th, 2006, which is the 58th anniversary of Babe Ruth’s death.

Yankee Stadium was purposely designed to mimic the layout of the original Yankee Stadium but on a larger scale, and it includes a greater number of club seats and luxury suites than the original stadium. Yankee Stadium has a capacity of 52,325 and cost an approximate $1.5 billion to build, making it the most expensive baseball stadium ever made.

Baseball games at Yankee Stadium are not only a strong tradition and source of pride for all the die-hard Yankee fans out there, but also a great chance for families and friends to sit back, enjoy a cold beer, and appreciate the glory of America’s favorite pastime.

I'm Not Even a Baseball Fan
Casey P. Jul 22, 2013
I don't even like baseball. Sure, it's fine, but it's sort of boring. Regardless, Yankee Stadium puts on a good show. They've got pretty much every all-American classic, sure to make you feel right at home - for a price. Everything is very expensive, so be ready to empty your pockets. After riding the subway directly to the stadium, it's only a two minute walk to your seat. The whole place - revamped only three years ago - is delightfully clean and customer-friendly. The fans are passionate, the workers are kind, and the field is gorgeous. You must make a trip to this iconic New York City venue! P.S. If you have the means, be sure to check out the Audi club for a pre-game dinner. The awesome views, incredible buffet, and hospitable staff are well worth it!

Say what you like about the Yankees (what's that? They're awesome? Yeah, I know.) but this stadium is fantastic. It's an easy hop on the 4 train to 161st in the south Bronx. (Also the B and D trains, the bus, and the water taxi, if those suit your fancy.) I remember when the makeover was announced - I ranted and raged about it for a week. But in some ways this new Yankee stadium is even more classic and impressive than the old Yankee stadium. The exterior hearkens back to the architecture of the 1920s and 30s, but the interior is all modern. The sight-lines are pretty damn good no matter where you're looking from, in a way they weren't in the old stadium. There is more space in the seats and between the rows, so sitting for the four hours is far more comfortable and it's much easier to get around. They've improved access for handicapped and they've upgraded the food - they may not be 4 star restaurants, but who needs that in a ball park? Go for garlic fries and a hot dog with some beer and you'll be set for an evening of baseball. (Or soccer, since they play there when the Yankees are on the road.)
Take Me Out To The Ball Game
Maia B. Apr 30, 2013
Whether the Yankees are your home team or you're an out-of-towner looking for some old fashion fun, Yankee Stadium is sure to provide you with all your ball park needs. One of the most iconic venues in New York's sports history, the new Stadium and all its glory sits directly across from the old one. Getting to the stadium is easily accessible by train and bus due to the fact it is of course a "hot stop". The multiple and speedy admission lines make getting in a no sweat ordeal so you can get to your seat and enjoy the game. If your seat is located higher up, be prepared to trek up the gate ramps to get to each level and then possibly climb a steep set of stairs. My advice is to of course get to the stadium at least 30 minutes before the game starts so that you have to navigate your way to your seats (especially if you've never been there before it might be a little confusing). As you make your way your seating be sure to stop at the food counters located on every floor to pick your food and beverages. The quality of the food is better than expected and has that authentic ball park taste you cant find any where else. If you like the prices might be too steep for your pocket, the park lets you bring outside food and beverages as long as they're sealed and in a plastic grocery-style bag. Besides watching the teams play, the best part about being in the stadium is being surrounded by all the high rise buildings and fans. It does matter if you come by yourself or some friends, you never know what type of people you might run into. During my visit, my home town team was playing the Yankees so I was able to get the best of both worlds. I saw other people supporting my team, little leaguers, various couples on dates, the comical die hard Yankee fans, college students, and even a few celebrities. Whether the players look like little ants to you or you can see the sweat dripping off the 1st baseman's face, every seat is technically a good seat in my opinion. If you look beyond the stadium you'll notice all the buildings and neighborhoods that surround it. To me, the venue is little a slice of paradise where people can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday city life. Also, if you just so happen to catch an evening game, its nice to watch the sunset with the city skyline in the back ground. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my Yankee Stadium experience from beginning to end and the price of the ticket was all the way worth it. If you've never been before you definitely have to add visiting this site to your bucket list.
Step Right Up!

Want to experience New York at its best? Are you a sports fan? Well you should hop on the train to Yankee Stadium and see the New York Yankees play some baseball! Located in the South Bronx of New York City, this stadium brings you entertainment, great food, and great company. Want to get loud and cheer for the pinstriped team? Well have no fear, here you will find some die hard Yankee fans voicing their pride for their team so join right in! While this stadium is relatively new and many feel that the old stadium held all of the history, I would say that the history is still here. This grand stadium is beautiful inside and out with friendly people waiting to take your picture, to aid you in finding your seat, and to guide you to the merchandise store to get your Yankee gear. Don't miss out on this unique experience whether you're a seasoned New Yorker or just stopping by. So follow the cheer, follow the pinstriped gear and remember, go Yankees!
Yankee Stadium
Philip V. Apr 14, 2013
As a New york born, baseball fanatic, I grew up with the Yankees in my life.When I finally visited the old and new stadium I was short of breath. Even though I have been there multiple times, there is still something about the fresh cut grass, memorial park, all the fans, and the feel of a baseball game. This is a historic piece of New York and going here will make your visit even better. Also I avoided the traffic by taking the public transportation and the park is actually delicious.
Yankee Stadium
Sabrina S. Mar 28, 2013
The new stadium is absolutely beautiful! Worth a visit for a Yankee game. Easily accessible by public transportation, I think this is the best way, you avoid traffic and having to find parking etc. You are allowed to bring in water and food from outside as long as it is sealed which is great if you want to avoid expensive stadium food. The stadium has a nice bar and snack area and great drinks.
One of many reasons I'm a Yankee Fan
Jonathan S. Mar 28, 2013
I've gone to Yankee games many times in my life, as I was born and raised in the Bronx. The best games I've been to however, have been in the new Yankee Stadium. Wow, this place is amazing. When entering, you feel like you're in a coliseum filled with memorabilia. And when it comes to watching the game, no matter where you are seated, it's a great view. The stadium has been made in a way, where no matter where you sit, the field seems close to you. Everything in the stadium is pricey, so I just bring a sandwich and a never-opened water bottle. The stadium truly shows the Yankee vibe.
Pride & Tradition Rebuilt
David S. Feb 20, 2013
As a lifelong Yankees fan, I am naturally conflicted in how I view “new” Yankee Stadium. On the one hand, like any other Yankee traditionalist, I miss the old Stadium like an old friend. There is simply no way to transfer the strong sense of history and tradition, in its entirety, to the new stadium, and because of that it will always be missing that certain mystique that belongs in the home of baseball’s greatest franchise. That said, however, the new stadium is nothing short of spectacular. Grand in every sense of the word, there is no mistaking Yankee Stadium for anything but the venue for the most valuable team in baseball. From its massive selection of concessions (from hotdogs to gourmet steak), to the grandeur of the various monuments and tributes to Yankees history, Yankee Stadium provides an entertaining experience before the game even starts, blending the history of the club with an unmistakable statement of enduring wealth and power. Ticket prices are regrettably high, and there is an argument to be made that the stadium holds less enthusiasm than its predecessor, but this is still an incredible place to watch a ball game, and should be a stop for any first time visitor to New York. The bottom line for me, and for many people visiting the New York area, is that watching baseball’s most accomplished team take the field is worth the price of the ticket. When you can see that team play in a stadium as comfortable, accommodating and architecturally awe-inspiring as this one, you’re getting a bonus. Fans will always miss the stadium that was vacated in 2008 - but new Yankee Stadium is, just as its predecessor was, a true cathedral of baseball.
Concrete Jungle Where Dreams are Made of
Risa C. Dec 11, 2012
Baseball kind of bores my but my family is all Yankee fans so I don't have much of a choice. I've been here for both baseball games as well as a soccer match between Real Madrid and AC Milan and had a great time at all. While I'm more into soccer so all I needed was good visibility of the field (which there was even from my nosebleed seats) I also had a great time at the Yankees game. The stadium has great concessions - a must have for any non-interested spectator, and they also have the on site hall of fame which brings your right down at field level. The stadium itself which was renovated within the past 2 years is gorgeous and about as comfortable as baseball/bleacher seats are going to get. Definitely check out this piece of New York history whether you're a local or just visiting for a few days.
Pining for Pinstripe
Jaclyn W. Dec 4, 2012
I'm a New Yorker through and through, so of course the Yankees are my favorite baseball team! The new stadium is absolutely incredible. The structure is massive and there are so many vendors to choose from it's like a mini mall. I've been to several games for the past three seasons at this stadium including the first work-out practice the team ever had here. I always feel like a little kid when I go because I can't help, but pick up a thing of fries and a soft serve ice cream cone. The field itself is phenomenal. When it's a nice spring day out, there's nothing like kicking back with a brewski and watching your home team win. I've also been in the sky-box courtesy of Mike Francesa's seats. I'm not sure how I'm going back to bleacher seating after that experience this year, but I will say it was one of the best cheeseburgers I have ever had. I didn't touch the sushi because come on it's a ball park vendor and I would stay clear of desserts too unless it's ice cream. Even the outside of the stadium when you step off the subway is a mesmerizing event. Sure season tickets are astronomical now, but what did you expect? It's the Yankees!
GO YANKEES
Sydnie S. Dec 2, 2012
The Yankees are a strong team with a beautiful stadium! The food is great, the fans are amazing, the team is successful. There has never been a time where I didn't enjoy my visit to Yankee stadium! If you want to get the full experience, I recommend that you go early to the games. The tickets are pretty expensive to buy, but the experience is worth it! The experiences I've had at Yankee stadium have been unforgettable. Even though I may not love the area that it is in, I always love my time watching the Yankees on the field!
A Classic Ballpark with a Lavish Makeover
Zach N. Oct 12, 2012
Reminiscent of the days of old-time baseball, when the Bronx Bombers would casually face off against the Brooklyn Dodgers in games that would seize the attention of New Yorkers from the Upper West to the Lower East, the new Yankee Stadium blends the classic, wholesome feel with a sleek, modern fitting. Although for many, the refreshed look is considered a set-back to the cherished spirit that emanated from the "House that Ruth Built," which hosted the Yankees for almost a century. The new stadium reflects the gargantuan corporate power house that turned the team from a losing venture in the 1980s to an Allstar-only, multimillion dollar roster two decades later. Completed in 2008, this stadium towers over the old, featuring higher quality visual coverage of the field, as well as greater access to food concessions and merchandise stands. Yet, it lacks the character that its predecessor once held. Nevertheless, there is no team that arouses its crowd as much as the Yankees do. The overwhelming sights, sounds, and smells create a memory that is unforgettable for all those who experience it. If you're a visitor to the city, or even a New Yorker born and bred in this great place, Yankee Stadium is, without a doubt, a sight to see.
Amusement Park? Or Baseball Stadium? It Can Be Difficult to Distinguish
Samuel H. Sep 26, 2012
Yankee Stadium is EPIC! Seriously though, I've never been to a stadium quite like this. The food is outstanding, the seats are comfortable and the stadium itself is beautiful. If you ever get the chance do whatever you can to make it to a Yankee Game at the stadium. If you are a Mets fan, first off, I'm sorry, second, go to a Yankees vs. Mets game so at least you can attempt to cheer for your team. If it wasn't clear, I'm a Yankees fan. Anyway, it is undoubtedly worth the effort to get to the stadium, I promise you won't be disappointed.
It's Hard to Find a More Vibrant Baseball Stadium
Sara G. Sep 20, 2012
Yankee Stadium is awesome. It's a schlep out there - unless you already live in the Bronx - but that just helps build the anticipation before the game. The stadium is HUGE and beautiful - plus, knowing how much history there is connected to the Yankees and that stadium makes it pretty awesome to hang out at, baseball fan or not. Food and drinks are exactly what you would expect - but it's justified - you're watching the Yanks! Definitely get there early - aside from the game, there is a ton to see. Most importantly, enjoy the crowd while you're there. Yankees fans heckle with the best of them - it's hard to find a more dedicated, loyal, and loud crowd than Yankees fans. Enjoy it!!!
Best ball park in America!!
Jonathan K. Aug 23, 2012
As a lifelong Yankee Fan, my trek to my first game at Yankee Stadium had everything you would find in a Disney movie - except the happy ending. The Yanks ended up losing the game to the Red Sox. The stadium is a shrine to all the great Yankees that had played in pinstripes; Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, & DiMaggio, to name a few. There was something magical about watching Curtis Granderson hit a home run to dead center and watching it land in Monument Park. Advice: 1) Get to the stadium an hour or so early so you can walk around and check out all the awesome monuments and statues. 2) Do not bring a car into the Bronx. Most people take public transportation and parking structures around the stadium cost about $30. 3) Bring a camera to take pictures - there is truly no ball park like it. 4) Have fun!
