Joker Marchant Stadium Improvements

By: Jessica Roberts

2017 brought big changes in the way Detroit Tigers fans experience spring training games in Lakeland. Joker Marchant Stadium improvements include new video displays, air conditioned spaces, more shaded seating, additional food and beverages options, and more.

Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium

TigerTown is a world class complex second to none in Major League Baseball.

LED HD Video Displays and Scoreboard

A state-of-the-art HD videoboard and scoreboard, measuring 46 feet wide by 26 feet tall (1,196 square feet), sits atop the berm in left field, one of the largest boards in all of Spring Training, along with a ribbon board in right field. These boards enhance the day experience, from more player information and stats, to exciting in-game promotions.

Seating Options

Shade – 41% of Seats are Covered

We’ve got a lot of sunshine in Central Florida, so Joker Marchant Stadium has 2,098 covered seats, while more seats can be shaded with the extended roof. The 34 Club provides an additional 203 covered seats, while casting shade to sections 200-201.

Box Seats

Sections 111 and 112 were rebuilt and expanded in 2017, adding four additional box seat sections down the third base line (113-116), bringing the total seating in the 100 sections from 1,243 to 1,888.

Air Conditioned Spaces

The 34 Club, presented by Miller Lite, located atop sections 200-201, features an indoor bar and seating, an all-inclusive buffet and outdoor padded seating for 203 fans.

Four former suites on the third base side of the press box have been transformed into the On Deck Suite, an all-inclusive space for 36-60 people that includes upscale food and beverages. You can also cool off in the new 1,800 square foot indoor merchandise store, located at the home plate entrance.

Premium and Group Seating

The 34 Club, presented by Miller Lite will sit atop sections 200 and 201. This upscale offering celebrates the Tigers relationship with the City of Lakeland that dates back to 1934, the longest-standing relationship between a major league team and a current Spring Training host city.

Enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet (the menu changes daily), air-conditioned indoor seats and outdoor seating. Perfect for individuals and small groups during Spring Training.

On Deck Suite

Situated behind section 208, the On Deck Suite Presented by CPS Investment Advisors provides a living room feel, with comfortable furniture and couches, HD TVs and an all-inclusive buffet (the menu changes daily). Outdoor seating is also available to take in all the action. The On Deck Suite is available for Spring Training in sets of four season tickets.

Hooters Dugout

Located adjacent to section 100 just down the first base line, the Hooters Dugout is the prime spot for autographs and player interaction. Perfect for groups of 30-40, the area includes an all-you-can-eat picnic with select ballpark and Hooters food, along with your own private waitress staff.

Pepsi Pavilion

Featuring two tiers with covering to protect against the sun and rain, the Pepsi Pavilion is perfect for groups ranging from 30-200 people. A mix of fixed stadium seats, drink rails and picnic tables allow for groups to watch the action or socialize with friends and family, while enjoying an all-you-can-eat picnic.


Presented by Margaritaville Rum & Tequila located directly down the right field line, the Florida themed Margaritaville Deck mixes a Florida theme with views of the bullpens and clubhouse. Featuring two tiers of seating, Margaritaville is available during Spring Training to groups of 44-120 and will double as a group/public place during the Lakeland Flying Tigers season.
