What's New at Turner Field in 2015

The Atlanta Braves kick off their 2015 campaign today in Miami, and return to Atlanta this Friday, April 10, for the Home Opener. Below are a list of upgrades and enhancements fans will find at Turner Field this season.

Technology

  • MLB.com Ballpark app upgrades: The MLB.com Ballpark app will unveil a series of upgrades and improvements throughout the season, further enhancing the user experience and making Braves games easier to attend than ever.
    • Digital ticket management: A List members are now able to manage their tickets through the MLB.com Ballpark app in addition to the website and by phone, making it easier than ever to download or transfer tickets. 
    • Not going: A List members can use the app to return tickets for games they can't attend and get credit on their account to use for future upgrades, the memory program, or anything that can be purchased through the MLB.com Ballpark app. 
    • Sit with friends: A List members can use the MLB.com Ballpark app to search for seats in a comparable location for games that they need extra seats and want to sit together. Additional seats can be paid for using the MLB.com Ballpark app credit or a credit card.
    • Single-game ticket holders can buy points in the MLB.com Ballpark app to redeem for in-game memories like seat upgrades, personalized experiences, merchandise orders and more.
  • Piedmont Healthcare iBeacon Challenge: Piedmont Healthcare is sponsoring a #livingbetter challenge to fans this season via the MLB.com Ballpark App (available only on iPhones running iOS 7 or above). As fans make their way around the grounds they can keep an eye out for these special beacons that allow them to check into points of interest through the MLB.com Ballpark app (Bluetooth needs to be turned on). The app will then reveal fun facts and stories about the team and Turner Field. If a fan checks into at least five of the 11 points of interests throughout Turner Field, they will be eligible to receive a prize at Fan Central located behind Section 126. The program encourages walking and healthy habits as fans try to check into as many as they can, making it a perfect fit for Piedmont Healthcare.
  • Digital Services Representative: Technology and social media have become a huge aspect of the fan experience, and to further improve our guests' trips to Turner Field, the Braves have hired a gameday employee to monitor social media on behalf of Guest Services. The staffer will be solely focused on monitoring the Braves social accounts to alert staff of fan issues so they can be resolved while the fan is still in the stadium.
