Cant wait to go.. and I think they made it smaller to get more sellouts.. Mets' attendance has been in the top 3 the past 3-4 years now but they weren't getting 56k per night (more like 50-52k, lol which is still alot).. IIRC Citi Field holds 46k? or something like that in the 40k's (49k maybe?).. anyway i expect it to be sold out a ton
I'll be in 524 Row 7 for that game.

I'll be there too and I'm pretty sure Citi Field has 42,500 seats and Capacities something like 45,000.

42,436 Seats, and, if these all sell out, maximum capacity of 45,000 with Standing Room.

Is anyone going to the exhibition games this weekend for either team? I'm going to the Met game tomorrow against the Sox.

Everything about it looks great.

There are tickets for as low as $6 and $11 also.

I love that Pepsi Cola logo out in right field... I'm smitten with this stadium. The way i am with Madison Square Garden... I'm so happy the deal for a new Arena didn't work out, because i love MSG, no other Arena looks like it. I can't wait until the renovations at MSG are done! It will be fantastic in there when they're finished.

CitiField was very very awesome, I went to the first game ever played there this Sunday between St. John's and Georgetown. It was reminiscient of Coors' Field IMO but that is fine. They just need to work on selling some advertisements, but other than that it is a huge upgrade from Shea. As a Yankee fan, I'm counting the hours till I see the new stadium tomorrow night, but it should be awesome (and looks great from some pictures I've seen today)

I'll be at the Yanks/Cubs game Saturday. Sitting out in the bleachers in left. I can't wait. I miss the old place, but I'm really pumped to see the new place. Same with Citi Field, I hope to get there in the next month or so.

I imagine Yankee Stadium will win this poll since there are so many more Yankee fans, but I just dont see how it's possible to objectively view both those stadiums and somehow think Yankee stadium is really nicer.

The Yankees got some balls asking for another hand out when the city is slashing services,talking about raising the transit fares,talking about laying off thousands of employees and canceling classes at the police academy.

Yeah, fewer cops on the street so the Yankee owners can make a few more bucks?

Makes perfect sense to me.
You have no clue how much revenue the yankees generate for this city

So you have been in both stadiums already? I'm impressed. Everyone can have an opinion, but your an idiot if you have such a strong opinion without having set foot in both places... and how is voting for Yankee Stadium just because your a Yankee fan worse than voting against Yankee Stadium because you don't like them...

As a Yankee fan, I love the outside of citifield and Jackie Robinson Rotunda. I love the inside of Yankee Stadium though... obviously I cant make a true decision until I see both.

It's pretty hard to compare both stadiums as they both seem like different animals. Citi Field seems like a more intimate park while Yankee Stadium seems a lot bigger. If I had to pick a ballpark, it'd be Citi Field (not because I'm a met fan) because of the design but Yankee Stadium had me impressed yesterday from looking at the pictures.

Not only for the city but for a poverty stricken part of the Bronx. Without the Yankees that area in the Bronx goes downhill very fast. They are a huge part of the Bronx community. They provide thousands and thousands of jobs and provide plenty of businesses in the area with paying customers. They are a huge part of a poor area's economy. You cant even argue it.

As baseball is just a pastime for me to go drink beer at. I am very pleased to have two new ballfields to go spend time in this summer....


I got tickets with a rangers fan buddy of mine to both places.... We need to pick which team we are rootin for in opposite so we don't feel wierd.

Have you been to that area? It's hardly thriving.

Yankees were my life at one point, but yet another example of how MLB and the Yankees are becoming less important to me.

New York players can park in an underground garage and go directly into the ballpark, meaning they don't even have to pass by autograph-seeking fans before or after games.

Thats a selling point? Cashman: "Come play for us, you don't have to sign autographs". I realize the Yankees didn't make that a selling point, but they thought it was necessary to make the provision for their players.

This. My grandma lives in the area. It's not the worst area, but it sure isn't a place I would want to live.

That's kind of disappointing. I understand the appeal to the players, but that sucks for the fans.

I haven't been to either stadium myself yet but a couple of my close friends have been to both and their reviews on Yankee stadium were surprisingly negative, especially considering that they're all Yankee fans from the Bronx. They said New Yankee stadium is almost exactly the same as Old Yankee stadium. Also, right and left field bleacher seats are obstructed by the walls of a restaurant.

I don't really understand why anyone would build a brand new stadium without working out a way to avoid obstructed view seating.

I made my first trip to the new Yankee Stadium today and it is absolutely gorgeous. I love the old stadium and I will miss it, but this place definitely softens the blow of losing it.

The only bad part about today was that there was a ticket snafu where it took my dad and I 40 minutes to get into the stadium since the scanner was ****ing up. We had to exchange tickets twice before finally getting a pair that worked. Later on we discovered that we had been sold tickets in the exact same location as two other people and since they had arrived earlier, the barcode read "tickets have already been scanned". We wound up sitting on folding chairs in the handicapped area - which was fine since we had plenty of room to stretch and the seats actually had backs unlike the rest of the bleachers, so that was fine but they really need to work on this ticket situation because other people had the same problem.

Nevertheless, the stadium is just magnificent. Unlike in the old place, if you sit in the bleachers you can move about the whole stadium, the garlic fries are absolutely crack, the great hall is awesome..they did everything right. If only the prices for tickets weren't so insane.
