As fans roam the large open concourses and take their seat to watch the Cardinals, they have one of the best views found in any ballpark. Beyond the outfield is the skyline of downtown St. Louis and the Gateway Arch. All the concourses are open including the upper level to allow fans views of the field. The main scoreboard is located above the seating area in right-centerfield with an out of town scoreboard to the right of the main scoreboard. The bullpens are found in left and right centerfield. From nearly anywhere in the ballpark fans have magnificent views of downtown St. Louis and the Gateway Arch. Busch Stadium has many gathering and party areas including the US Cellular Family Pavilion where fans can enjoy interactive games and activities, the Coca-Cola Rooftop Deck and the Backstop Bar.

St. Louis Cardinals fans are some of the most passionate fans in baseball as the Cardinals attract over three million fans annually to Busch Stadium each season. Not only have the Cardinals won the NL pennant three seasons since moving into Busch Stadium: 2006, 2011 and 2013, but have one of the best ballparks in baseball with its setting in downtown St. Louis and knockout views of the skyline.
