Texas Live! will be a unique mixed-use entertainment district situated southwest of Globe Life Park in Arlington and adjacent to the new Rangers ballpark.
A new ballpark for the Texas Rangers is coming to Arlington for the 2020 season.
Globe Life Field, which is being built as a public-private partnership between the City of Arlington and the Rangers, will not only be the team's new home but also a multipurpose sports and entertainment venue that will include capabilities for hosting high school, college and international sports as well as entertainment tours.
The official groundbreaking for Globe Life Field took place on September 28, 2017 with construction beginning the following week. The new 1.7 million square foot ballpark, which will be located on 13 acres just south of the current Globe Life Park in Arlington, will include a retractable roof for climate control and shelter for fans during the hot summer months. Seating capacity is expected to be approximately 40,000 for Globe Life Field.
