Ballpark Village Set To Open As Cardinals Expect First-Year Attendance Over Seven Million
Published March 24, 2014
LEAVING THE NEST: SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL's Don Muret reports Delaware North Sportservice's Cardinals Nation restaurant at Ballpark Village is "the first time in the vendor’s 98-year history that it has gone outside the four walls of a sports facility to run a food destination with connections to the primary venue." Cardinals Nation "encompasses a 510-seat restaurant and rooftop deck, which serves as an all-inclusive ticketed space for Cardinals games." The facility "will be open year-round, operating from 11 a.m. to midnight daily." The Cardinals are "responsible for booking catered events on days when games aren’t played" (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 3/24 issue).
