Tampa Bay Rowdies fans get to see for themselves at 'Meet Your Seat Day'

TAMPA — Fans wondering how Steinbrenner Field, the pristine spring training home of the New York Yankees, will accommodate professional soccer will be able to see vision turn into reality next weekend.

The Tampa Bay Rowdies, who will play their inaugural season home games at Steinbrenner Field, will hold an open house and "Meet Your Seat Day" on April 10 and 11.

It will be the fans' first opportunity to get a vantage point from their seats. Steinbrenner Field, situated for baseball, has most of its seats from foul line to foul line. The soccer configuration, which will be throughout the outfield, will offer different sight lines.

"We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to see where they will be sitting for this season and is excited for it all to begin," said Andrew Smith, the team's director of sales.

Season ticket purchases and upgrades will be available at the event. Season tickets for all 15 regular-season home games range from $150 for general admission to $420 for the rightfield club deck.

The event will open Saturday, April 10 at 10 a.m. for all season ticket holders and those who have placed a deposit for season tickets. It opens to the general public noon to 3 p.m and will resume Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Rowdies open the regular season April 16 in Baltimore. Their first home game is 7:30 p.m. May 8 against the Austin Aztex.
