Busch Stadium Information
The New Busch Stadium was designed by Populous (previously known as HOK Sport) and constructed by Hunt Construction. The project, originally projected at a total cost of $344.8 million, eventually cost $365 million to reach completion. Jim Chibnall, lead designer of Progressive Field in Cleveland, Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Sydney Olympic Stadium, was head of the design project behind the Busch Stadium. The venue features a state-of-the-art LED video and scoring system from Daktronics. The video display contains 100 feet of digital ribbon board technology and its three message displays measure a whopping 32 feet high by 52 feet wide. In 2006, neutral grass turf was installed in the stadium.
The venue was opened in 2006 with a 6-4 win by the resident Cardinals over the Milwaukee Brewers. In doing so, they became the first team in nearly a century to win a World Series Championship in the inaugural season of a brand new ballpark! The Busch Stadium was also the host to the 2009 80th MLB All-Star Game.
Today, it is the state’s premier venue for sporting events, hosting a whopping 48,052 fans in one particularly legendary game between the Cardinals and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
