Spectators Enjoy Outdoor Games, Concerts, Festivals and Other Events at Kino Sports Complex, Just Off I-10 in Tucson
The Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, AZ is a multi-purpose sports facility used for a number of different sports activities. The Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago White Sox's minor league complexes were once housed in Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium, which was the site's main ballpark for Cactus League games in March. For the Tucson Sidewinders' last decade in the stadium, between the 1998 and 2008 seasons, the ballpark was also home to the team from the Pacific Coast League.
While the team was relocating to El Paso, Texas, the stadium was a temporary home for the Tucson Padres of the Pacific Coast League. This was the home of the Tucson Mexican All-Stars of the Arizona League from 1998 to 2000. Also from 2016 to 2017, the Tucson Saguaros baseball team played their regular season home games there. Aside from its primary function as a baseball park, the stadium seats 11,500 fans and hosts concerts.
A soccer team of USL League One calls Kino Sports Complex home. FC Tucson is based in its North Stadium, the complex's primary soccer stadium.
Indoor basketball court, outdoor swimming pool, soccer, baseball, softball fields, classrooms, meeting and party rooms, multipurpose facility that seats over 11,000 people.
There are 8,000 stadium seats and over 3,000 lawn seats available, so everyone in the family will have plenty of space to grab a hot dog and a soda and watch America's favorite game. What else happens at Kino Stadium other than baseball? A lot. The stadium has hosted large outdoor concerts with national acts such as the Doobie Brothers and Smashmouth along with all-day community festivals. This is the venue for many non-profit fundraising events, car and gem and mineral shows, and many more family-friendly events throughout the year, including Relay for Life and the Fourth of July Family Fun Fest. This facility is not limited to the stadium, but it is an exceptionally outstanding one.
There are twelve senior, three half baseball/softball fields, two youth fields, 3 full soccer fields and a Kino Stadium on 158 acres. Some of the fields at Kino Sports Complex have lighting for extended nighttime play. Communities use them for championship games, corporate competitions, and family reunion softball games. There is no better location in Arizona than the Santa Catalinas for a wedding or a baseball game with a panoramic view of the distant mountains. Watch the star pitcher, he's probably following in Randy Johnson's footsteps. When you attend a little league championship game there, keep your eye on him.
There are 9 ramadas, many concession stands and many special event areas at the Kino Veterans Memorial Sports Complex. Baseball stadium seats generally cost between $5 and $19 for baseball games (other event tickets may be less). The fields can be rented for community games or other uses.
And one of our (DC Roofing) personal favorite aspects of events at Kino Sports Complex is its proximity to one of our personal favorite restaurants - the long established, Tucson favorite Silver Saddle Steakhouse (voted by Tucson, AZ area residents as the "Best Steak in Tucson!"). Whether you're going yourself or just want to impress an out of town guest with some authentic and delicious western steak, ribs chicken, burgers and more, you'll never go wrong with a trip to the Silver Saddle!
