Yankee Stadium, home to the 27-time World Series champion New York Yankees, was built in 2009. Groundbreaking ceremonies for the stadium took place on August 16, 2006, the 58th anniversary of Babe Ruth's death but the Yankees continued to play in the previous Yankee Stadium during the 2007 and 2008 seasons while their new home stadium was built across the street.
The new stadium has hosted numerous events including the most recent Yankees World Series in 2009. It is also a year-round destination offering versatile space suitable for corporate events and conferences, trade shows, film shoots, fundraisers, awards dinners and social events.
Located in the Concourse section of the Bronx, it is also the home park for New York City FC of Major League Soccer (MLS). The $2.3 billion stadium, built with $1.2 billion in public subsidies, makes the new Yankee Stadium the most expensive stadium ever built.
The stadium incorporates replicas of some design elements from the original Yankee Stadium, and like its predecessor, it has hosted additional events, including college football games, soccer matches, two outdoor NHL games, and concerts. Although Yankee Stadium's construction began in August 2006, the project spanned many years and faced many controversies, including the high public cost and the loss of public parkland.
