According to what was first revealed through local media, the team will announce plans to build a new stadium in their current home of St. Petersburg.

The stadium will be an enclosed dome to accommodate the rainy Florida weather. It will seat 30,000 and is expected to open in 2028.

The current home, Tropicana Field, is leased through 2027.

The new stadium will be built adjacent to Tropicana Field as part of the City of St. Petersburg’s downtown development plan.

Construction is expected to cost $1.2 billion and will be shared by the Rays, the City of St. Petersburg, and Pinellas County.

The Rays have not found an investor at this point, but there are reportedly investors who are interested.

Tampa Bay has been pursuing a new stadium for more than a decade.

At one point, the Rays even had a plan in place to join forces with Montreal, Quebec, Canada, to create a bi-national franchise, but it was never approved by Major League Baseball.

A move to Tampa, a larger city in the same region, was also considered, but the team ultimately chose to remain in its current home of St. Petersburg.
