  • [Rockies] Changes to Coors Field.

    9News (KUSA) in Denver had a report tonight and showed footage of construction crews tearing out seat in the upper deck, [300 section]. This is to make way for the 5280 club. It will feature a bar that is 52 feet 8 inches and have great views of the Mile High City.

      I saw Vic Lombardi's tweet about that. Makes no sense.

      How about spending less money to renovate a stadium that you can't fill and spending more money on staff and players?

        I actually think its a brilliant move overall given that a lot of fans that currently attend games are not really there to watch baseball but rather experience the colorado outdoors and drink some beer.

          Well I guess if the goal is to provide an outdoor hang out spot instead of a playoff contender.

            Sometimes I think Monfort truly thinks that.

              Just another way to sell more tickets, beer and concessions.

                Since they will have fewer seats they will potentially sell fewer tickets. Since there will be fewer tickets avaliable ticket prices can go up. Giving the benefit of a doubt maybe that will increase revenues to help get free agents.

                What is ironic is when Coors was being builds they added seats becuase of the popularity of the team.


                On a side note I am thinking that they will sell some of the seats as a fund raiser, with the Purple seats going for a premium. I hope they at least give Healton #17 a purple and a green set. Also save a purple and green #2 for Troy.

                  That upper deck was almost always empty anyway, it's basically adding to the game experience without subtracting much.

                    I'd put money on it that that deck is mainly empty a majority of the season. If I'm a luxury fan I go to the club level not all the way to the upper deck.

                      I gotta say I was at coors field this sept. that place was pretty dam nice. I have limited BB experience but two buddies that were with me have been to a lot of places and thought the same. I told them about the Reno and the first response was that there was another reason to make Denver our next year mancation destination. I would love to sit in a place like that and watch the game!

                          I have been involved in the design of some sports arenas and worked with HOK Sports who designed a lot of ball parks. Wrigley Field is the model often referred to in that it provides a venue where business people can attend a game during the day and entertain regardless of how good the home team is. The Cubs seldomly field a contender-- yet they make a lot of revenue off attendance and concessions by business attendees.

                          The average family of 4 will not drop $100 each to go see a game, but businesses will pay that as a write-off marketing expense. So, these improvements are about getting more revenue from those that would usually attend the game.
