Suntrust - Texas Rangers stadium

SunTrust Bank closed $600 million in financing for the Texas Rangers to fund the team’s share of construction costs for its new ballpark.

The stadium, to be named Globe Life Field, is a public/private partnership with the City of Arlington, TX. The park will feature a retractable roof facility with modern ballpark amenities. The financing provides the Rangers with efficient access to funding that will allow the new stadium to stay on track to open for the 2020 MLB season.

“While our deep expertise in sports and stadium financing made the transaction possible, it was our shared vision with the Rangers that made this deal come to life,” said Julia Harman, SunTrust Commercial Banking president for the Dallas – Fort Worth market.

“The Rangers is an organization dedicated to their community and their broad fan base. This transaction allows them to stay in Arlington for the foreseeable future and create a ballpark with the amenities and overall fan experience that will be among the best in professional sports,” said Peter Dorfman, managing director in the SunTrust Sports and Entertainment Group.
