The Major League Baseball (MLB) team Detroit Tigers have spent two years upgrading the experience at their home ground – the Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan (US) – from the outfield dimensions to the scoreboard, the sound system to the lights.

‘www.mlb.com’ stated that their next step is to upgrade the seating options with a whole new way for the fans to take in the game.

The Detroit Tigers are an American professional baseball team based in Detroit. The Tigers compete in the Major League Baseball as a member of the American League Central Division.

The 41,083-capacity Comerica Park is a baseball stadium located in Downtown Detroit (US). It has been the home ballpark of Major League Baseball’s (MLB’s) Detroit Tigers since the year 2000.

‘www.mlb.com’ further stated that the Tigers and the Ilitch Sports + Entertainment recently unveiled plans for a new premium seating area behind the plate, a Home Plate Club area underneath the Comerica Park’s stands, and new semi-private Loge Boxes further up the lower bowl between the bases. The home-plate seats are expected to be ready for the start of the 2025 season, while the Home Plate Club will be available at some point during the next season.

Detroit (US)-based Ilitch Sports + Entertainment is reimagining the power and potential of providing world-class sports and entertainment experiences to the fans, guests and its corporate partners.

The renovations come in response to the fan feedback in surveys and matches similar features in the other Major League parks, according to Ilitch Sports + Entertainment President/head honcho Ryan Gustafson. Some newer ballparks were built with such areas as part of their design, while some older ballparks are including them in renovations. For the Comerica Park, which opened in the year 2000, it’s the most significant change to fan seating since the Tigers added the right-field grandstand with the movement of the bullpen to left 20 years ago.

Maintained Gustafson, “The announcement of our Home Plate Club and Loge Boxes showcases our organization’s ongoing commitment to providing a first-class fan and player experience. Our goal is to continue investing and creating a variety of best-in-class experiences for all the fans. Adding exclusive, premium seating options is the feedback we’ve heard consistently and we are thrilled to unveil these exciting upgrades during the 2025 season.”

The project will replace about 500 traditional seats behind the home plate with more spacious, cushioned seats. They’ll feature direct access to the Home Plate Club, an all-inclusive experience with high-end dining and bar options along with in-seat service, private restrooms and a private entrance underneath the lower bowl.

The Loge Boxes will group seats together along the lower level, partially enclosed by a privacy wall. They’ll include access to the Home Plate Club.

As part of the project, other parts of the ballpark are set for improvements, such as the visitors’ weight room and the other clubhouse areas, along with the umpire lounge.

The upgrades are the latest stage of a multiyear ballpark renovation aimed at improving the experience for the fans and the players alike. This season saw the Comerica Park unveil a larger videoboard and sound system, following light-emitting diode (LED) lighting and new outfield fences and dimensions last year. The Tigers clubhouse has been revamped over the last couple seasons with new lockers, weight and dining rooms, with a goal to optimize the player performance, development and recovery. Beyond the Comerica Park, the Tigers have upgraded player development facilities in Lakeland, Florida, and are building a new academy for international prospects in the Dominican Republic (country in the Caribbean).
