Safeco Field is located in Seattle, Washington and is home to the Seattle Mariners. The major-league baseball season has always been defined by the sport’s history, great fans, team competition, and state-of-the-art stadiums.

Safeco Field (originally rendered SAFECO Field and sometimes referred to as Safeco) is a retractable roof baseball stadium located in Seattle, Washington. The stadium, owned and operated by the Washington-King County Stadium Authority, is the home stadium of the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball (MLB) and has a seating capacity of 47,860 for baseball . Construction lasted until July 1999, and the stadium hosted its first game on July 15, 1999.

Aside from the Mariners, Safeco Field is also used for amateur baseball events including the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association high school state championships and one Washington Huskies baseball game per season. Major non-baseball events that have been held at Safeco Field include the 2001 college football Seattle Bowl and WWE Wrestle Mania XIX, which set Safeco Field’s attendance record of 54,097 in 2003. It is also used for major corporate, political, and other events, as well as smaller events such as weddings.

Safeco Field is located in the SoDo district of downtown Seattle, bounded by Dave Niehaus Way South (a block of First Avenue S.) to the west, and Edgar Martínez Drive S. The stadium is located near the western terminus of Interstate 90.
