On the season’s home-opener, Blue Jays showcase new 100-Level seating bowl at Rogers Centre

This winter, the original 100-level infield seating bowl was demolished from foul pole to foul pole, and redesigned for baseball-first viewing experience.

The Toronto Blue Jays continue the renovation of Rogers Centre from a multi-purpose stadium into a ballpark-first venue, and have unveiled the reimagined 100 level seating bowl designed for baseball viewing.

Combined with the popular Outfield District which opened last season, the new seating bowl continues modernizing the fan experience at the Rogers Centre. The first chance to enjoy the newly renovated 100 level seating bowl will be during the opening homestand from April 8 to 17, 2024.

The multi-year, nearly $400 million, privately funded renovation, which was first announced in July 2022, has transitioned the 35-year-old stadium to feel more like a ballpark through projects aimed to bring fans closer to the action, introduce modern fan experiences, and overhaul player facilities.

The first phase of work focused on the outfield from foul pole to foul pole, and introduced five distinct Outfield District social spaces. These spaces were available to all fans with a game ticket, as well as raised bullpens and new outfield and 500 level seats.

The second phase of work overhauled the 100-level infield from foul pole to foul pole by demolishing and excavating the original bowl as well as redesigning and rebuilding a new 100 -level seating bowl and adding world-class player facilities and premium clubs and amenities that will open mid-season as planned.

Work will continue into the season to put the finishing touches on player facilities and premium clubs. An average of 350 Canadian tradespeople on-site daily logged roughly 400,000 worker hours to complete the demolition and rebuild of the 100-level seating bowl.

“Being baseball ready for the Toronto Blue Jays Home Opener on April 8 is a tremendous accomplishment that we take pride in celebrating with our partners, including more than 2,500 talented tradespeople,” said Monique Buckberger, vice president and district manager, PCL Constructors Canada Inc. “With a staggering level of coordination and activity averaging 350 workers on site daily, six to seven days per week over the past six months, our workforce was fueled by the passion of being part of a project that provides a sense of community. Thank you to everyone involved in bringing the Toronto Blue Jays’ reimagined vision for Rogers Centre to life.”

Along with the new seating bowl, fans can look forward to visiting the Outfield District for the second season, and exploring added features with new looks throughout the 100 level including new drink rails.

The fan-favourite retro right field bleachers have officially been named the Canada Dry Bleachers. The left field balcony   overlooking the home bullpen has also been named the BeautiTone Balcony in which the front row can be reserved as a one-of-a-kind group space.

Tickets are available at bluejays.com/tickets, including the $20 Outfield District Ticket that offers general admission ballpark access.
