The MLB’s Oakland Athletics, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and HNTB released the design for the team’s new ballpark in Las Vegas at the Tropicana.

BIG leads the master planning of the ballpark design, with HNTB collaborating on the design and acting as the architect of record. BIG previously presented a design for the team’s Oakland ballpark, while HNTB was the architect for the Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium.

“The collaboration between BIG’s creativity and HNTB’s technical expertise allows for a truly innovative and bold design while ensuring an unmatched fan experience,” said Athletics Managing Partner and Owner John Fisher. “We hope to add to the dynamic atmosphere and liveliness of the Las Vegas Strip, creating a welcoming environment for all of Southern Nevada.”

The 33,000-person capacity ballpark will provide an “outdoor feel with views of the city’s skyline.” The tiered design will split upper and lower seating, bringing fans closer to the game and clear sight lines from every seat. The roof has five overlapping layers, inspired by baseball pennants, and is open to the north to allow for natural light and views up the Strip while limiting direct sunlight and heat from the south. The outfield features the world’s largest cable-net glass window, facing the corner of the Tropicana and Las Vegas Boulevards. The design also includes an 18,000-square-foot jumbotron, making it the largest screen in MLB.

The ballpark’s plan supports up to 2,500 on-site parking spots, a two- to three-acre plaza that starts on the site’s northwest corner and extends to the main concourse. The parking plan will be determined in partnership with Bally’s and GLPI. 

The Oakland A’s are also working with Clark County and NDOT on traffic and transportation plans to ensure easy access to the stadium. They will work with the Regional Transportation Commission on additional services, including the express bus service currently provided for T-Mobile Arena and Allegiant Stadium. 

The ballpark is scheduled to open for the 2028 season.
