Spring Training

Spring Training 2021Spring Training 2021 is scheduled to begin on February 27, however, the Cactus League would prefer to delay Spring Training for a month. The hope is that a delay would allow more time for people to get vaccinated and to hopefully see a decline in new COVID cases. No decision has been made about changing the February 27th start of the season. Right now, the Texas Rangers are set to take on the Kansas City Royals on February 27 at 1:05 p.m.! For a complete schedule of games and updated information on ticket sales and safety protocols, please visit SurpriseStadium.com or call 623.222.2222. Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the Spring Training Schedule and information is subject to change.
