Whether you’re looking to create a memorable baseball-themed event or just want to treat your team to some MLB fun under the Scottsdale sun, Spring Training has a line-up of game-changing options for groups of all sizes.

 


Boardroom Boredom Busters


Break out of the boardroom and bring your small group to the stadium for their meeting followed by an afternoon of Spring Training action at its finest! The Press Box at Scottsdale Stadium, Spring Training home of the San Francisco Giants, offers spectacular views of the ballfield and nearby McDowell Mountains, as well as breakout rooms and a spacious patio. At Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, which hosts the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies, the Luxury suites provide private space for small parties up to 15 people. Located behind home plate, these suites boast great views of the field, the McDowell Mountains and Red Mountain.

 


Old Town Convenience


With its Old Town location, Scottsdale Stadium puts you within easy reach of several unique meeting venues, including Clayton House, The Clayton on the Park, Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, and Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West. Hold your morning meetings at one of these top-tier venues, then take a short walk or trolley ride to the stadium to watch the Giants take on the competition.

 


All-Star Networking


Stadium party decks and patios are ideal venues for pre-game networking receptions. Salt River Fields’ American Airlines Deck and Miller Lite Loft, located down the first and third baselines, provide outstanding views and are ideal for networking receptions. Over at Scottsdale Stadium, the Press Box Patio and Team Store offer plenty of space and game-day atmosphere for groups up to 150.

 


Championship Banquets and Theme Events


Instead of a traditional ballroom banquet or event, take your team out to the ballgame! At Scottsdale Stadium, your group will enjoy spectacular views of the stadium field from the Charro Lodge, which features a ramada-style roof, tiered levels, and plenty of space for up to 500 people. The Pepsi Patio at Salt River Fields is located above the main stadium press box and can accommodate up to 600 guests. Put some elevated ballpark cuisine on the menu and take advantage of exciting Spring Training baseball – it’s built-in entertainment that’s sure to please!
