A new $128 million downtown stadium, which will be completed in spring 2011, will serve as home to the NCAA Men’s College World Series for the next 25 years.

TD AMERITRADE Park Omaha will be the ultimate destination for college baseball players who dream of “The Road to Omaha” and a chance to compete for college baseball’s national championship. In addition to the College World Series, the new stadium will provide numerous sports and entertainment opportunities throughout the year, including professional and collegiate baseball, outdoor concerts and special events.

TD AMERITRADE Park Omaha, which is bordered by 10th to 13th Streets, Cuming to Webster, will join Qwest Center Omaha as an architectural icon for thousands of visitors arriving in downtown Omaha. Primary goals of the project focused on enhancing the student-athlete and fan experience, while benefiting the entire community. Key elements of the TD AMERITRADE Park Omaha include:

  * Seating for 24,000 fans, including 26 luxury suites and 1,000 club seats.
  * A brick veneer rising 32 feet from the ground on the ballpark’s exterior, matching the look of building materials in many downtown Omaha structures.
  * Glazing and openings at street level that will allow people in the vicinity to view the activity happening in the stadium.
  * Four entrances, allowing fans to enter and depart from any of the stadium’s four directions.
  * A large Fanfest area with 360 degree walk-around concourse views of the field.
  * Approximately 9,000 parking stalls within a 12-minute walk of the stadium.
  * Relocation of “The Road to Omaha” statue at the corner of the 13th and Cuming entrance.
  * A minimum of 5,000 square feet of available retail space.

TD AMERITRADE Park Omaha is expected to open in 2011. For more information and to view live web cam images, please see http://www.tdameritradeparkomaha.com
