A to Z Guide
Welcome to Greater Nevada Field! On March 17, 2016 the former “Aces Ballpark” was renamed “Greater Nevada Field” as Greater Nevada Credit Union entered into a naming-rights agreement for the home venue of Reno Aces Baseball Club and Reno 1868 FC.
The 15-year agreement between GNCU, the Aces and Reno 1868 FC includes exclusive sponsorship and advertising rights and prominent signage on the ballpark’s exterior façade as well as the scoreboard in left-center field and numerous locations throughout the ballpark.
The 9,100+ capacity venue opened on April 19, 2009, including a turn in the national spotlight on July 17, 2013 when Reno hosted the Triple-A All-Star Game. Greater Nevada Field also plays host to many other events throughout the year including the “Slaughter House” haunted house and the downtown ice rink.
Accessible seating is available throughout the main concourse at varying price levels. Companion seats adjacent to wheelchair accessible seating are available. To purchase tickets for accessible seating please call the Ticket Office as (775) 334-7000. Tickets may also be exchanged prior to game date, or on day of game based upon availability at the main ticket windows at the Evans Street Entrance or in Advanced Tickets, located in the Guest Services Office, behind Section 105.

If it is raining before a baseball game…
The decision to postpone a game, due to weather, is typically made close to the game’s scheduled start time. Team officials pay close attention to the weather leading up to game time and make every effort to keep the field ready for play. Unless the weather prior to game time is particularly severe or the forecast reveals the inclement weather is inevitable, team officials will plan to play the game as scheduled.
If it begins to rain during the baseball game…
If it starts to rain while a game is in progress, the grounds crew will cover the field if it is necessary to keep the playing surface suitable for play. The game will then enter a rain delay. During this time, team officials and Pacific Coast League umpires will pay close attention to the weather and the forecast for the remainder of the game. After a reasonable amount of time, the umpires will decide if the weather has improved and is suitable for play or if the game should be declared a rainout.
If it is raining before and during a soccer match…
Reno 1868 FC matches are played in all weather. If there is lightning in the area, the match is delayed until team officials and United Soccer League referees decide if the weather has improved and is suitable for play.
If the teams have played five innings or more (or if the Aces are leading after four and a half innings of play) and a rainout is declared, the game is considered an official game. In other words, the game is finished, the game has a final score, and play will not continue at a later date. On the other hand, if a game is rained out before being declared an official game, the ticket stubs can be kept for a future game that season.
RAINOUT TICKET POLICY
In the event of a rainout, the ticket for that game will be good for any regular season game and may be exchanged at the Greater Nevada Field Ticket Office for a ticket of equal or lesser value, subject to availability. All exchanges must be made in person at the Ticket Office. Greater Nevada Field will not provide any cash refunds. If a game is called due to inclement weather or other circumstances after five innings have been played, a game is considered “official.” In this case, there will be no ticket exchanges.
Restrooms are conveniently located throughout the stadium. Suite restrooms are available behind Suites 5/6 for men and women. All restrooms are ADA accessible and most are equipped with baby changing stations.
