The Atlanta Braves has begun selling season tickets to SunTrust Park at its newly opened SunTrust Park Preview Center.
The high tech SunTrust Park Preview Center overlooks SunTrust Park and the adjacent mixed-use community construction site. Outfitted with meeting rooms named after Braves players, A List Members and other visitors can experience fly-through videos of the mixed-use community, the exterior of SunTrust Park as well as key amenity areas within the ballpark. Visitors will also be able to physically sit in various types of seating configurations and get a feel for the scope of the project by seeing a detailed scaled model of SunTrust Park and the mixed-use community.
“We want our fans to be immersed in the experience of SunTrust Park,” said Derek Schiller, an executive vice president for the Atlanta Braves. “That starts by locating our preview center adjacent to the construction site, where fans can watch the park come to life in real time. They will then have the ability to ‘step inside’ SunTrust Park, through our Virtual Venue application, where they can experience the unmatched views from their future seats and the level of service and amenities that A List Members will expect at SunTrust Park.”
According to the Braves, SunTrust Park will have a variety of seating options that will cater to all types of fans. A List Members will have a number of choices on either non-premium seats that range from US$6-US$90, or premium seating that range from US$85-US$475. More than 19,000 seats – nearly half of the ballpark – will be priced under US$20 per seat, with more than 7,000 seats at less than US$10. Almost 6,000 seats will have added value built into the ticket – including food and beverage credits and special area access – starting at US$40 per ticket. The average ticket price for A List Members at SunTrust Park will be US$28, just under the Major League average of US$29.
“Much of the feedback we’ve received from fans in recent years revolved around the lack of seating and amenity options available at Turner Field. We believe it is important to offer a variety of experiences for every type of fan, which we have accomplished by increasing the amount of value-add offerings and premium options,” said Schiller. “That being said, the Braves are confident that our games will remain affordable and accessible for all our fans.”
SunTrust Park is being developed by the Braves in partnership with Cobb County, the Cobb-Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority and the Cumberland CID, and will be completed by Opening Day 2017.
