Unveil New Field Level Concourse, Clubs

Dodger Owner and Chairman Frank McCourt unveiled the new Field Level concourse and clubs today. The multi-million dollar Field Level restoration project includes double the number of concession stands and restrooms, new concession partners, two new clubs for Baseline Box seat holders, expanded walkways, new signage, and energy efficient equipment.

  The improved Field Level will be in full operation starting Friday, (tonight) when the Dodgers play against the Boston Red Sox in an exhibition game.  

"We are committed to enhancing the fan experience at Dodger Stadium and the changes on the Field Level reflect feedback we've received directly from our fans," said McCourt.  "We hope that they will enjoy every new amenity offered and look forward to hearing their reaction throughout our 50th anniversary season."  

  The Field Level expansion was completed by the McCourt Company in partnership with HKS Architects.  The improved concourse now allows for all concession stands to be served by the kitchen space behind them which are now large enough to produce enough food to serve fans on separate levels of the stadium. Concession areas also now include new state-of-the-art equipment including grills and refrigerators.   

New concession partners will now be featured on the Field Level and longtime vendors will return to vastly improved concession areas. New concession stands on the renovated concourse are: Canter's Deli, Mrs. Beasley's, Ruby's Diner, the Dodger Blue Bar, and Camacho's Cantina. Returning to newly enhanced stands are: Panda Express, Gordon Biersch and California Pizza Kitchen.  

Additionally, the Dodger Dog, introduced 50 years ago and the top-selling hot dog in baseball last year, will be sold at additional concession stands on the Field Level. A personal touch added are new crank dispensers for onions and relish that stemmed from a conversation McCourt had with a fan during his inaugural season with the team in 2004.  

  In an effort to turn Dodger Stadium into a more environmentally-friendly ballpark, several modifications were also made. The addition of a new stadium-wide cooling system will lower temperatures in all concession areas.  

Other environmental improvements include adding hand dryers in the restrooms and moving to waterless urinals, which will save up to 2.4 million gallons of water annually on the Field Level.  

Additionally, the club replaced the previous stadium lighting structure with an energy efficient one - Musco's Light-Structure Green™ system. The new lights will conserve energy by reducing more than 95% of the light that falls outside of the stadium and will keep unnecessary light out of the eyes of the players and fans.   

As part of the expansion, the Field Level concourses will also include two new Baseline Box Clubs – The 1st Baseline Box Club and the 3rd Baseline Box Club – for the exclusive use of Baseline Box season ticket holders.  

The Baseline Box Clubs are located on the first and third base sides at the end of the concourse and offer all-inclusive Chef's Table selections, carryout options, and a full-service bar. A limited number of full and half-season packages for Baseline Boxes are still available. For further details contact Dodgers' Premium Seating at 323.224.1320 or premiumtix@ladodgers.com.   

The Field Level renovation marks the completion of the next phase of the multi-year renovation of Dodger Stadium.  

More than $140 million has been invested in stadium renovations over the last four years.  

Remaining concourses will be similarly redesigned in upcoming off-seasons.
