Rogers Centre

Capacity: 49,260     Opened: 1989

Never a better time to get your passport than a trip up to Rogers Centre to see the Blue Jays in action. The park will have you singing “O Canada!” in no time!

What makes this stadium unique?

Rogers Centre became the first professional venue to have a fully retractable roof in 1989. The roof usually stays open during the game providing fans with views of the surrounding skyscrapers including the CN Tower which is next door. The outfield is connected to the Renaissance Hotel. Seventy of the rooms overlook the field providing guests and fans alike game time entertainment. Under the Renaissance Hotel suites there are eight “Banners of Excellence” honoring former players and personnel. The Blue Jays are one of the few MLB teams that don’t retire numbers. Fans should note that buying tickets at the 500 level prohibits access to the lower bowl.
