LoanDepot Park has a seating capacity of 37,442. It is the third-smallest stadium in Major League Baseball by official capacity and the smallest by actual capacity.

LoanDepot Park was built on the site of the former Miami Orange Bowl in Little Havana, about 2 miles west of Downtown Miami. Construction was completed in March 2012 ready for the 2012 season. The park was named Marlins Park until 2021 when the company loanDepot acquired the naming rights.

LoanDepot Park is known for its extraordinary architectural design that boasts several modern techniques hinting at a glimpse of the future baseball stadiums. The building is also environment friendly. Sealants, adhesives, and paints used in this ballpark contain low VOC, which maintains the air quality within the park.

Miami Marlins Tickets

The Miami Marlins 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.
