  • stadium tours at citi field and yankee stadium?

    i was wondering if the new stadiums will have stadium tours when they open next april/ early may? my sports marketing teacher wants to go to the stadiums next year but it has to be in april or ealry may cuz we graduate in june...and ill be a senior next year. i dropped out of an unneeded spanish class nxt year so i could get my possibly only way of getting to the new stadiums in the next 5+ years. any on know if they will have tours when they open, we going to philly and possibly fenway but the new stadiums would be awsome to end my senior year of high school.
    Lets Go Mets, Jets, Islanders !!!

    You can bet that if they can charge money for it, New Yankee Stadium will have it.

    So my feeling is, yes, the Yankees will sell tours. After all, everyone is gonna want to see all the historic nooks and crannies of the NYS.

    "And right there is Donald Trump's first row field box."

    And here's the Martini Bar--the first in the world to serve the 'Yankee Blue (berry) frozen daiquiri'."

    etc., etc.

      Never mind what he said, cause he's a loser, and all he does is puts people down on here, and makes people feel stupid.

      I'd say they'll probably have tours of both stadiums as soon as they can.

        Gee, jimz, the only people I was putting down were the Yankee Organization. But if I made you feel stupid, I humbly apologize.

          I'm sure you guys know the Yankees already offer tours of Yankee Stadium, at $20 a head. (It was $15 but they recently raised the price.)

          According to Opening Day at Great American Ball Park by Dann Stupp (published 2003 by Sports Publishing LLC), "fans were invited to a free open house on March 22 and 23 [2003], which drew more than 212,000 fans from around the region."

          Hopefully the Mets and Yankees will do the same.

              I read that the Yankees are going to do the same thing. They were going to use this day to use as a test run for employees dealing with crowd management, plumbing and concession services.

              I did not read anything about the Mets - but I do think that these test runs are a common practice when new stadiums are open

                Yes they will defiantly hold tours in the new Stadium. Remember The City of New York owns the stadium, if you look at the parks department website, you can see that they have plans to start disassembly in 2009. Once the Yankees vacate the Stadium, which I believe they must be out by the end of December, the city takes over the Stadium. So the Yankees will have no authority to conduct tours in the old Stadium. They also have no control over the planned NHL game to be played there.

                The Tours officially stop on September 19, and may restart after the post season, but no one is sure yet if and when.

                Also in response to the earlier post about the Yankees making money on the tours, look at the tours section of the website. Proceeds for tours go to The Yankee Foundation, not the Yankees, Checks are made to the Foundation not to the Yankees. The Yankees Foundation is the non-profit arm of the Yankees used for charitable reasons.

                I hope this clears things up a bit.

                  Actually the website says: "A portion of the proceeds benefits The New York Yankees Foundation, a non-profit arm of the New York Yankees."
