Surprise Stadium, spring training home of the Texas Rangers and Kansas City royals, has been ranked the No. 1 Spring Training stadium in Arizona by USA TODAY!

The newspaper conducted a study of online fan reviews to create scores for all 23 spring training stadiums in four areas: facility; family friendliness; food; and fan experience.

Not only did Surprise Stadium score first overall in the Cactus League, but the park also topped all 23 Arizona and Florida spring training facilities in the categories of facility and fan-experience!

The 16th annual Surprise Spring Training season will begin this Saturday, February 24, when the Kansas City Royals take on the 2017 National League Champions Los Angeles Dodgers. Surprise Stadium will host 31 games this season, with scheduled matchups against every Cactus League team.

Tickets start at just $8, and parking is free! Catch a unique fan experience on our Budweiser Legends Deck; tickets are only $30 and include food from local restaurants, a drink voucher and access to a private bar.

No matter where you choose to sit, you can expect a great view of the game and some fun additions to the fan experience, including an interactive photo opportunity that lets you place yourself in a scene with the Royals and Rangers mascots.

Plus, you’ll want to try our new signature eats! Our Tamale Dog is a jumbo dog placed inside a green chili tamale topped with sour cream, salsa and jalapenos; and our High Heat Dog features Sriracha-infused ketchup, Caribe pepper-infused mustard and jalapeno relish!

For ticket information, the game schedule and more, visit or contact the Surprise Recreation Campus Box Office at 623.222.2222.
