Al Lang Stadium is a 7500 seat sports facility stadium in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida that is the current home pitch of the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the North American Soccer League (NASL). It was built in 1947 and was used almost exclusively as a baseball park for over 60 years. Al Lang Stadium was reconstructed in 1976, and was renovated again in 1998 when the Tampa Bay Devil Rays began using it as their first spring training venue. The Devil Rays / Rays were the last of a long series of Major League Baseball clubs to conduct spring training and host an affiliated minor league team at Al Lang Stadium. Before the Rays, tenants included the New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Mets, and the Baltimore Orioles, amongst others. The stadium hosted its last spring training game in 2008 and was the site of occasional amateur and exhibition baseball for the next several years.Since the Tampa Bay Rowdies became the primary tenant in 2011, Al Lang Stadium has been incrementally modified for use as a soccer venue. Since October 2014, an agreement between the club and the city of St. Petersburg has made the stadium a soccer-only facility.The stadium is named in honor of Al Lang, a former mayor of St. Petersburg who was instrumental in bringing minor league and spring training baseball to the city in the early 20th century.

  • Super friendly staff, great Soccer(fĂștbol) team. You have to experience Ralh's mob "When I root I root for The Rowdiews" #COYR
  • Great stadium for a soccer match. Atmosphere is contagious. A very fun time in downtown St. Petersburg. Ralph's mob is a great cheering section
  • Tampa ' home of the Rowdies! It's good considering that it is a baseball stadium. Prices on concessions aren't bad and they serve fast too. It's a good place for a good time.
  • Go Rowdy's, soccer is sweeping the nation and we have one of the best local teams right here in St. Petersburg.
  • Another great experience at AL Lang. Where else can you get a 420 16oz for $11 and see an excellent soccer game. Plus now they have added a 3 time EPL champ and still the best left back in the game #2 The King !
