Northeast Delta Dental Stadium
Welcome to Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, home of the New Hamsphire Fisher Cats! We played our first game in the state-of-the-art ballpark in April of 2005 with a few steel bars, concrete, and mounds of dirt showing signs of life of a budding hotel.. A year later the hotel was completed followed by the construction of the Samuel Adams Bar & Grill prior to the 2008 season.
Originally called Fisher Cats Balkark, the facility was designed by the renowned architectural firm HNTB out of Kansas City. A year after it opened, it became known as Merchantsauto.com Stadium thanks to a generous partnership with the Singer family and Merchants Automotive Group.
Fast forward to 2011, with new red, white, and blue team colors, it was announced on January 31 that the stadium would be called Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in a partnership between the Fisher Cats and Northeast Delta Dental.
In addition to 71 Fisher Cats games each summer, the ballpark sees an estimated 25,000 guests come through its doors thanks to charity events and walks, high school and AAU games, private events, and concerts. In August of 2006, rock & roll legend Bob Dylan became the first concert performance at the ballpark. The venue has also hosted the likes of Live, Collective Soul, and the Counting Crows.
The stadium's capacity is 6,500, but can comfortably fit more than that thanks to an ample concourse and generous standing room. The largest crowd in stadium history, 8,903, witnessed MLB Hall of Fame candidate John Smoltz make a rehab start for the Portland Sea Dogs on May 26, 2009.
In addition to the main seating bowl, fans can enjoy the game from one of two private, 100-person party decks on the first and third base lines, a 300-person picnic area in left field, 28 luxury suites, and the Samuel Adams Bar & Grill.
We hope you enjoy your visit to the ballpark, and we look forward to hosting you again soon.
