Comerica Park is a baseball stadium located in Downtown Detroit with a capacity of 41,083. It has been the home of Major League Baseball’s Detroit Tigers since 2000, when the team left Tiger Stadium. The park features a Ferris wheel, a mammoth water feature in centre field that can be choreographed to any music, and a decade-by-decade pedestrian museum enveloping the main concourse.

Before moving to Comerica Park in 2000, the Detroit Tigers spent 88 seasons playing at a stadium on the corner of Michigan and Trumbull Avenues in Detroit’s Corktown neighbourhood. The original stadium opened in 1896 as Bennett Park, until it was rebuilt in 1911 and renamed Tiger Stadium by the Tigers owner Frank Navin. By the mid-1990s, it had become apparent that Tiger Stadium could not be renovated any further. This led to the decision to build a new stadium. Construction on Comerica Park began in October 1997 and the first game was held on April 11th, 2000, against the Seattle Mariners.

Detroit Tigers Tickets

The Detroit Tigers sell their tickets via and the MLB Ballpark App.

SeatGeek has replaced StubHub as the official ticket resale partner for MLB.

Baseball fans can still use other resale ticket marketplaces to buy and sell tickets to MLB games. MLB will verify those tickets so buyers know they’re getting a legitimate ticket.

Here are links to the main ticket resale sites. Click on the link, which will open up a new window, and you can compare the prices on the different ticket resell sites, bearing in mind that the prices shown are before the selling platforms fees are added, so take time to have a read of my tips to Buying Tickets in North America.

I recommend downloading the Ballpark App to your phone as it contains a lot of Gameday information for the Ballpark you are visiting and a place to check in and record all the baseball games you have been to.
