Springfield Cardinals Announce Partnership with Expedia

Springfield Cardinals LogoPRESS RELEASE – The Springfield Cardinals, Double-A affiliate of the 11-time World Champion St. Louis Cardinals, are excited to announce a new partnership with Expedia®. The partnership includes a naming rights component that will rebrand the Redbird Roost at Hammons Field as the Expedia® Redbird Roost.

The Expedia® Redbird Roost will continue to offer fans all of the great perks that have been included in the specialty seating area in the past. In addition to featuring an unmatched view and sight lines from the second level on the third base side, the Expedia® Redbird Roost will remain an all-you-can-eat section with delicious ballpark fare such as hot dogs, bratwursts, nachos, chips, cookies, a salad bar, Coca-Cola products and more.

Springfield Cardinals Partner with Expedia for Redbird Roost Naming Rights“We’re very excited to begin this partnership with Expedia and rename the Redbird Roost,” said Springfield Cardinals Vice President / General Manager Matt Gifford. “With more than 900 employees locally, Expedia is a major employer and key contributor in the Springfield community, making this partnership a natural fit.”

“We are thrilled to build upon our relationship with such an extraordinarily strong community presence as the Springfield Cardinals,” said Expedia’s Global Customer Operations General Manager, Allison Graves. “As the world’s leading online travel company, we share a great passion with the Springfield Cardinals – creating fun and memorable experiences for people – so this partnership just makes perfect sense for us.”

One of the best bargains in the ballpark, the Expedia® Redbird Roost is not only an ideal area for Season Ticket Holders and Group Outings, but also a perfect way to enjoy the game in an all-inclusive environment. There is no minimum number of tickets needed for the Expedia® Redbird Roost, but all seating in the section is based on availability, so advanced booking is encouraged. There are even private restrooms exclusively available for Expedia® Redbird Roost Season Ticket Holders.

Season Tickets and Group Outings in the Expedia® Redbird Roost are available right now by calling the Front Office at (417) 863-0395. Individual Game Tickets will go on sale at a later date.
