History of Citizens Bank Park
Ground was broken on the stadium on June 28, 2002. Citizens Bank Park was completed roughly two years later on April 3, 2004. Back in 1999 the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates, along with the Philadelphia Eagles joined together to replace both Three Rivers Stadium and Veterans Stadium with separate stadiums. Demands for new stadiums increased when the Vet Stadium collapsed during a game, injuring eight people in 1998. Back in 1997 the Pirates stated they would leave Pittsburgh if new stadiums weren’t built.
Even though the Phillies stadium ended up not being built in the center of the city, they still beat records for attendance in 2010 with the most sellouts dating back to 2009. On June 17, 2003 Citizens Bank signed a 25 year, $95 million deal for naming and advertising rights for the stadium.
