Choctaw Stadium

(formerly known as Globe Life Park in Arlington)

Home to the Texas Rangers for 25-plus years, Arlington, Texas has a love for baseball and events as big as the Lone Star State. One look at Choctaw Stadium proves it. This former home to the Texas Rangers ball club, since 1994, is a 270-acre multi-purpose complex with over 48,000 open-air seats that has played host to two World Series games and the 1995 All-Star Game.

It’s All in the Details

The architecture of Choctaw Stadium fuses state-of-the-art amenities with respect for the grand tradition of America’s pastime. In 2020, the original Choctaw Stadium layout was reconfigured to also be utilized as a football and soccer facility. Features of the park include a granite and brick facade, a home run porch in the right field, and an asymmetrical playing field, a common characteristic of early 20th-century ballparks. The playing field is comprised of real grass, a luxuriant Tifway 419 turf. And, of course, the Lone Star features prominently on the exterior and interior of the park, a symbol of Texan pride.

Food and Drink

When it comes to eating and drinking, Choctaw Stadium doesn’t mess around. With over 100 fixed and mobile concession stands to choose from, you can sample everything from the traditional hotdog and beer to chicken-fried bacon on a stick, fried S’mores with creme cookies, or the fabled Broomstick—a 2-foot long hotdog with chili, cheese, and jalapeno. If you really want to go all out, sit down with the Holland Hot Tot ‘Chos, a heap of tater tots smothered in peppers, beef, and hollandaise queso.

Choctaw Stadium is also available for public and private events, hosting anything from concerts to banquets. Planning a fundraiser or holiday party? Want to experience dinner on the diamond or cocktails under the lights? Check availability for your special event today.
