    Yankee Stadium is located in the South Bronx in New York City. It is the home field to baseball’s most storied franchise, the New York Yankees. Major League Soccer’s New York City FC also call Yankee Stadium home. The new ballpark, which opened in 2009, is located directly across the street from the original Yankee Stadium. The stadium features many of the design elements of the old ballpark, including the replica frieze that hangs from the stadium roof. Much like the old ballpark, fans can view subway trains just beyond the outfield bleachers. Current capacity is 49, 642. With a price tag of $1.5 billion to build, it is the second most expensive stadium in all of sports, trailing only MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

    History

    Planning for a new Yankee Stadium began as far back as the 1980’s, as owner George Steinbrenner alleged unsafe playing conditions at the original ballpark. Numerous locations were considered for a new stadium, including across the Hudson River to New Jersey and on the West Side in Manhattan. The proposal for the current stadium was unveiled in 2004. The initial plan to include a retractable roof was eventually scrapped.
