I recently had the opportunity to attend a Major League Baseball game in a new party zone at Target Field in Minneapolis called “The Catch”. While general admission attendance is lagging for the Minnesota Twins, mainly because the team continues it decade of futility on the field, the party zones at Target Field are perpetually sold out and full of energy.
Adult beverages and freshly prepared food are included with a ticket to “The Catch” party zone. The space includes individual seats and personal television screens overseeing center field with custom railing provided by our sister company, SC Railing. In addition, couches and high top tables are incorporated into the space so the passive fan can enjoy a party fan experience, yet still feel involved in a major league environment. Even though the Twins lost the game I attended, my friends and I had a really fun and unique experience at the ballpark!
At Staging Concepts, we are seeing an increase in arena and stadium renovations to transform their spaces into VIP and party zone areas. We recently completed VIP Party Zone projects at Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers), Yankee Stadium (New York), Hard Rock Stadium (Miami Dolphins) and Rynearson Stadium (Eastern Michigan University Football). Staging Concepts is uniquely qualified to create a VIP area in sports arenas utilizing our custom guardrail and modular staging products. We stand ready to help improve the fan experience in any sports venue.
