With 2025 marking Comerica Park’s 25th season hosting Major League Baseball games, Ilitch Sports + Entertainment and the Detroit Tigers today announced some of the most significant upgrades to the fan experience since the ballpark opened. This continues a multi-year stretch of projects to constantly, thoughtfully, and impactfully provide a first-class fan and player experience. Here is a presentation link with more information.

Two of those enhancement projects for 2025 are being unveiled today, centering around premium seating at Comerica Park. Construction and work on each of the projects will begin this year and will be completed on a rolling basis into next season. More detail will be shared on each as specifics are finalized and construction begins. 

First on this list is the exclusive Home Plate Club, a new space built beneath the stands featuring a high-end, all-inclusive experience with direct access from the dedicated seats with an immersive perspective closest to the action. Upgraded seating behind home plate will be completed for the home opener next season, while the full club experience will be available during the season as the project is completed. 

Another feature fans will enjoy are all-new Loge Boxes, located in the lower level of Comerica Park, between the bases. With access to the Home Plate Club and all the same benefits, these boxes offer fans a semi-private luxury seating and game-viewing experience that elevates them above the action. A privacy wall partially encloses these seats, providing additional comfort directly in front of each chair.

“The announcement of our Home Plate Club and Loge Boxes showcases our organization’s ongoing commitment to providing a first-class fan and player experience,” said Ryan Gustafson, President and CEO, Ilitch Sports + Entertainment. “Our goal is to continue investing and creating a variety of best-in-class experiences for all fans.  Adding exclusive, premium seating options is feedback we’ve heard consistently, and we are thrilled to unveil these exciting upgrades during the 2025 season.”

As part of construction surrounding the Home Plate Club, the Tigers are also upgrading the visitors weight room and other clubhouse spaces as well as the umpire lounge.

Much like recent projects undertaken by the organization, including the renovation and expansion of the home clubhouse at Comerica Park, the Home Plate Club is made possible by both reorganizing existing and creating new back-of-house areas beneath the seating bowl at the ballpark. This innovative approach has been taken to catalyze expanding the team’s operations for both player- and fan-facing areas.

These new premium seating spaces join several other projects completed in recent years, and additional ones that are on the horizon. Those include the renovation of the Tigers home clubhouse at Comerica Park; purchase and renovation of a new team plane; installation of state-of-the art LED field lighting, stadium sound system, and scoreboard; building new player development facilities in Lakeland; building of a new player academy in the Dominican Republic; and more.
