The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have continued renovations in ROGERS CENTRE, throughout the offseason, all aimed at enhancing the game-day experience of the Club's fans. The Club is proud to announce the following new features completed for the 2006 season and GENERAL MOTORS OPENING NIGHT presented by THE TORONTO STAR & THE FAN 590 (Tuesday, April 4 - 7:15 pm).
A new-look 100 LEVEL CONCOURSE - Several rows of seats were removed from the top of the lower bowl to allow for a concourse area that is wider and brighter than any time in the stadium's history.
The introduction of the CLUB 200 VIP section - Located on the 200 Level in the area directly up from home plate, this section will cater to an upscale clientele with amenities including concierge greeting, a gourmet restaurant with clear sightlines of the game, in-seat food service, a wine lounge and high-end bar.
The construction of the KIDS ZONE - This bright colourful play area is filled with a series of family-friendly baseball-themed activities including pitching and batting cages, the latest video games in the PlayStation Play Pods and a special "stadium" for toddlers four years of age and under. Designed by Toronto's ZEBRA STUDIOS, it also boasts concessions with menu choices tailored to kids.
A series of newly renovated & refurbished LUXURY SUITES - Efforts to update the stadium's luxury suites first began in 2005 and continued through this offseason. In all, more than 40 luxury suites have been renovated and refurbished in more recent months to include new furniture and the latest technology, while still boasting the same dedicated level of elite customer service. On the 400 Level, a series of suites were converted into one Super Suite capable of hosting large parties.
The installation of two new sets of IN THE ACTION seats - New banks of seats have been created at field level off first and third base.
The construction of a new ROGERS PLUS store location - Located at the site of the former Gate 8, this store features all the latest Rogers product offerings. Fifty-foot window appliquÃ©s of All-Stars VERNON WELLS, TROY GLAUS and ROY HALLADAY rise up the southern facing of the building from the store.
A completely SMOKE-FREE ENVIRONMENT - ROGERS CENTRE will be entirely smoke-free in full compliance with the incoming Provincial legislation, the Smoke-Free Ontario Act.
Prior to the 2005 season, the Club installed a new FieldTurf playing surface and a new set of integrated video display boards from DakTronics.
