Busch Stadium, also commonly called “Busch Stadium III” or “New Busch Stadium,” is a Major League Baseball stadium located in St. Louis. The stadium is home to the St. Louis Cardinals and has a seating capacity of just under 45,000. It also contains 61 luxury suites and 3,706 club seats.
The current stadium was completed in 2006 and replaced Busch Memorial Stadium (Busch Stadium II). In fact, it still occupies a portion of the former stadium’s footprint, which you’ll find under the name Ballpark Village. It’s a commercial area that was constructed adjacent to the stadium over the remainder of the former footprint.
What to Expect at Busch Stadium
Busch Stadium is an MLB stadium, so you can expect baseball and everything relating to it. The St. Louis Cardinals are part of the National League, so they play teams such as the Atlanta Braves, Chicago Cubs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Aside from touring the stadium, including the dugout and field, you can also browse through the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum, which is included in the price. Here you’ll find rare models of the stadium, bats that were held by Cardinal legends, and view championship memorabilia.
The old Busch Stadium was taken down by a wrecking ball in late 2005 and the new stadium now sits in part of its former footprint.
Busch Memorial Stadium was built to accommodate football and baseball. Since the stadium no longer needed to accommodate football, it was the perfect candidate for a remodel.
The original Busch Stadium was located downtown St. Louis on a 30-acre site.
