Citi Field Events

Citi Field opened in 2009 as the new home of the New York Mets, known by many casual baseball fans as “that other baseball team in New York that isn’t the Yankees.” There is simply no denying that the poor ol’ Mets have suffered at times in the shadow of their flashier crosstown cousins, but there is a certain counterculture cool in proclaiming yourself a Mets fan, a sense of authenticity and independence, of not just blindly following the masses in their support of shiny and superficial glory. The Mets fans you will meet at Citi Field might just happily inform you who they think the real baseball fans in New York are. It certainly can’t be denied that Citi Field, with its superb design and lively atmosphere, is a fantastic place to catch a ball game. As well as all regular season and playoff Mets home games, the stadium hosts many concerts, cultural events, and other sporting competitions. Hungry visitors will not stay hungry for long at Citi Field, with everything from sushi to fresh fruit to Shake Shack on offer, and the FanFest Area behind the scoreboard in center field has plenty of entertainment for families with small children. The many kiosks and shops dotted around Citi Field sell all kinds of team and event merchandise (your chance to wear something to show that you are cool enough to be a Mets fan).

Citi Field Seating Chart

While not quite as massive as the Mets’ previous home stadium, Citi Field is nonetheless a big venue that offers many different seating options to suit every preference and budget. Premium seating areas such as club seats or luxury boxes cater to those looking for an exclusive experience, but there is also a wide range of general admission seats too, from mid-range seats in the lower tiers up into the cheap seats (the “nosebleeds”). Rest assured that even if you are in the uppermost reaches of Citi Field, you will still have a great view of the action.

Getting to Citi Field (Transportation and Parking)

Getting to Citi Field by car

It is possible to drive your own vehicle to Citi Field, but it might be a slow and frustrating experience at times, as traffic tends to clog up (even by New York standards) around the stadium during big games and events. Plan for an early arrival to avoid disappointment. MLB’s official website has excellent maps and driving directions.

Does Citi Field have on-site parking?

Yes, Citi Field has several dedicated parking lots around the stadium. Note that Lot B is only for certain season ticket holders. There is also off-site parking located nearby, but be sure to check times and rules (as they are somewhat complicated).

Off-site parking can cost as little as $5, but various restrictions and limitations apply depending on the time of day and other factors, so be sure to read the fine print beforehand.
