Fayetteville Ballpark Named SEGRA Stadium

Fayetteville ballpark

Spring is just on the horizon, which means it’s time to start thinking about America’s favorite pastime: baseball. Luckily for us here in Fayetteville, we have our own local minor league team to root for. The Fayetteville Woodpeckers are back in town after a 17-year absence, and they have a brand-new stadium, which will be called the SEGRA stadium.

Named after one of the largest independent bandwidth companies in the United States, the $40 million ballpark will act as a premium sports venue for the area. It will be outfitted with Wi-Fi and will have a bar in the outfield that will offer live music, lounge seating, corn hole, and more. You can even attend a game in one of the six luxury suites or four field boxes to give you a premium baseball experience.

Those with little ones will be happy to know that there will also be multiple kids’ zones to keep little ones entertained, and foodies will rejoice in knowing that all concession stands will have unique, original food options with branding that takes influence from Fayetteville and nearby Fort Bragg.

The stadium is set to open up in April, so make sure your Honda is ready to be packed up so you can haul whatever you need to the next ball game. And if you don’t have one, we’ll get you sorted at Bryan Honda!
