Old versus New
While it is impossible to ignore the nostalgic spirit and the charm of the old Yankee stadium, constructed in 1923, the new stadium has undoubtedly been planned to bring visitors one of the most enjoyable and comfortable baseball experiences in the world.
The existing field dimensions have been maintained to ensure that games are kept as similar as possible, but when it comes to seating arrangements, facilities and retail choices, it is clear that the New Yankee Stadium wins hands down.
Seat width and leg room between seats have been increased to make watching the game more comfortable, while cup holders have been added to all seats in the general seating row.
Restrooms have been added (one for every 60 fans instead of one for every 89), and there are around 15 dining and lounge options in the New Yankee Stadium compared to the four offered in the old one.
