Chase Field Tickets
When it opened in 1998, Chase Field, home to the Arizona Diamondbacks, was the first stadium constructed in the United States with a retractable roof. The team was an expansion team in Major League Baseball. The Diamondbacks won their first World Series title in franchise history at the stadium in 2001 when they defeated the Yankees in seven games for the World Series title.

The stadium's original name was Bank One Ballpark (or BOB) from 1998 to 2005. It is located in downtown Phoenix and was constructed during the wave of baseball-only stadiums being built in the country.
The high game-time temperatures in Phoenix brought on the need for a roofed stadium in the city. The roof remains open leading up to game-time so the grass stays alive. The stadium was built with the ability to let a little bit of sunlight through the roof, but not too much to make the inside of the stadium too hot.
There is a massive HVAC system in the stadium that drops the temperature by 30 degrees so the fans are comfortable for the entire length of the game. The roof closes three hours prior to the game and the HVAC system is activated. Updates to the system were made after fans in the higher level stands were still feeling the Phoenix heat during games even with the roof closed.
One of the most recognizable and popular attractions of Chase Field is the swimming pool just beyond the fence in right centerfield. The pool is used as a suite and rented to guests with a party of 35 persons for a game. Fans can swim in the pool if they choose or can sit in seats provided to watch the game.
There are 4,400 club seats and 74 suites at Chase Field for fans to enjoy games each season.
Chase Field has hosted other events outside of Arizona Diamondbacks games. Some events include the Built Ford Tough Series bull-riding event with the Professional Bull Riders, Monster Jam, college baseball games, college football games and women's college basketball games.
