Al Lang Stadium, St. Petersburg

(4.2/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Love coming to this venue. Security and staff are very friendly and helpful, and stadium itself is in a wonderful location and has been tastefully redone. I used to come and watch baseball here when I was a kid, so I am slightly partial to this place, but I love that it hasn't lost its character. Go Rowdies!!!!
  • Fun friendly stadium for pro soccer games. Great views of marina and bay. Enthusiastic crowds. Affordable.
  • Visited for a Rowdies game and had a blast. Stadium is well lit, entry and exit was painless. Parking was ok since I parked in a garage and walked a block. Will definitely return
  • Super friendly staff, great Soccer(fĂștbol) team. You have to experience Ralh's mob "When I root I root for The Rowdiews" #COYR
  • Fun, little stadium to see the Rowdies games at. Passionate fans!
