The Miami Marlins loanDepot park has become the latest Major League Baseball ballpark to join Oak View Group’s Stadium Alliance.

loanDepot park joins nine other U.S. venues in the Alliance including several prominent MLB ballparks like Globe Life Field (Arlington, TX), Target Field (Minneapolis, MN), and Dodger Stadium (Los Angeles, CA).

The Marlins have invested significantly to enhance the experience at loanDepot park – completely re-imagining and re-concepting the food and beverage offerings and activating mobile ordering options, installing unique social spaces outside and inside the ballpark, and installing free-flow parking in the surrounding parking garages. 

To better facilitate additional non-baseball events, the organisation recently installed the Shaw Sports B1K synthetic grass surface system to help cut costly sod replacement and reinforce the organization’s commitment to sustainability.

As part of the Alliance, OVG will offer loanDepot park consulting services related to event booking as well as relationships with artists, managers, agencies and promoters.

Adam Jones, Miami Marlins chief strategy officer, said:

This partnership with Oak View Group will help us continue to realise the potential and promise of loanDepot park as a jewel venue in South Florida and a year-round entertainment destination for global artists and internationally-renowned events.

Jeff Nickler, senior vice president of Oak View Group's Arena Alliance & Stadium Alliance said: 

We’re very pleased to welcome loanDepot park to the Alliance. Given the location of the venue in one of the most vibrant international destinations, we see loanDepot park, with its retractable roof technology, attracting an increasing number of year-round events.

It was recently announced by Ye that loanDepot park will host the artist’s Donda Experience Performance on February 22. loanDepot park also recently announced it will be the first Major League Baseball stadium to host the prestigious Caribbean Series (Serie del Caribe) in 2024.

OVG founded the Stadium Alliance in 2015 with the goal of assisting major league ballparks and stadiums in maximising their calendars and in generating new revenue through incremental concerts and events. Its mission is to utilize our relationships with the top promoters, agents, and managers in the live entertainment industry to deliver the world’s most exciting concert content for our members.
