As the 2018 season approaches, the New York Mets are undertaking a significant renovation to the Home Plate Lounge at Citi Field.
Through this project, the Mets are looking to make a drastic change to their Home Plate Lounge. Once the project is complete, the space will be doubled in size and come with an interesting slate of offerings, including complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages, a private bar, and direct access to the seating area.
The club is open to all ticket holders in first eight rows of sections 11-19. According to Mets officials, the new Home Plate Lounge has the potential to make Citi Field a more appealing destination when it comes to corporate entertainment. More from Fox Business:
“From a corporate entertainment perspective, what we found is a lot of companies look at sporting events as a business tool,” Kenny Koperda, the Mets’ senior director of new business development, told FOX Business. “It’s an extremely attractive option to entertain and enjoy America’s pastime.”
The Home Plate Lounge, which doubles the size of the club it replaces, is open to fans sitting in the first eight rows of sections 11 to 19. Tickets come with plenty of free perks. All food and non-alcoholic beverages are complimentary, including popular items like Shake Shack (SHAK) burgers that are delivered straight to customers’ seats. Fans can also use their tickets to get free food, snacks and drinks from concessions throughout the ballpark.
Prominent companies are among the Mets’ ticket holders behind home plate, according to Koperda, and the team has a “long line of sponsors” interested in putting their name on the renovated club. Seating is limited, but tickets are currently available. Single-game tickets are priced between $323 and $779, depending on the visiting team.
The project is set to be completed prior to Opening Day on March 29, when the Mets take on the St. Louis Cardinals.
