Al Lang Stadium
230 1st Street SE
St. Petersburg, Fla. 33701
Situated on the downtown St. Petersburg waterfront, the iconic Al Lang Stadium, capacity 7,227, has transformed over the past two seasons. Edwards took over management of the city-owned facility historically known for baseball spring training and invested millions of dollars turning it into a proper venue. Al Lang Stadium is managed and operated by Big3 Entertainment Group.
Gates open 90 minutes prior to kickoff for all Tampa Bay Rowdies home matches. Fans sitting in the Midfielder’s Club or Midfielder’s Reserved seating sections may enter the stadium through a dedicated gate on 1st St. SE, across from the Hilton, for their convenience. Fans with tickets for any other seating areas can enter the stadium through gates 2 or 3, adjacent to the Al Lang Stadium parking lots. Strollers are permitted, but must be parked in designated areas.
The Al Lang Stadium lot offers those who show early a $5 spot, but the parking lot may fill up early. Fans may also park in the nearby South Core garage, reachable from First Ave. S., between First and Second Streets for $5. Another option is the Sundial garage, a six-minute walk from the stadium, on Second Ave. N., between First and Second Sts. Rates for these facilities are usually $5 but could be up to $10, depending on what other downtown special events may coincide with games, such as on the Fourth of July. Limited parking is also offered in the Mahaffey Theater garage for $10 when the garage is not in use by theater patrons.
If fans decide to park on-street instead of lots and garages, they should pay close attention to the posted time limits or other requirements.
