The Stadium Review’s website began in 2019 as a way to review every MLB ballpark. As of November 2021, I’ve been to over half, so I still have a ways to go. I plan to visit 1-2 new ballparks each year to visit each team’s stadium eventually.
However, the website grew from a personal review of ballparks to something much different. In 2020, I began expanding the content on the website to cover things like parking and food at various venues. I also started adding about fifteen new blog posts to the website each month.
The Expansion Phase on the Website
Some new areas on the site include the parking and food guide for every MLB, NHL, NBA, and NFL venue. For parking, I partner up with SpotHero to deliver affordable parking options for fans to purchase for any event, concert, or game. For the food, I highlight different food and drinks you could get at each venue.
In addition to MLB, NHL, NBA, and NFL content, the website has plans to move into more verticals. Some of the verticals will include soccer (football) and rugby. Another vertical that I’m looking to enter is e-sports, but I need to educate myself on for a bit.
As a Business
In 2021, The Stadium Reviews officially became an LLC business. The business’s official address is 229 Washington Street Suite 306, Saratoga Springs, NY, 12866. Making this a business came from my dedication of growing this website into something bigger today. While the website covers the MLB, NHL, NBA, and NFL, I plan to expand this to other sports down the road.
Some of the articles on the site are written by my content writing team. Each of my writers is in the United States, so I’ve grown a website into a small business with a few consistent writers.
Finally, this website generates money from the ads and any purchases you make on SpotHero. The Stadium Reviews, LLC partners with Mediavine to deliver high-quality and relevant ads for your visit. Along with Mediavine, The Stadium Reviews LLC works with SpotHero to show up-to-date parking deals on as many stadiums and venues as possible.
Greg Kristan is the owner of The Stadium Reviews. In addition to running the sports website, I run my SEO consulting firm, TM Blast LLC, since 2017. Outside of The Stadium Reviews LLC and TM Blast LLC, I’m building out Plant Legend, a new website about how to take care of plants. I also record vlogs to document best SEO practices and more.
I also enjoy running, cycling, hanging out with my friends, tossing a frisbee around, watching TV, and playing video games outside of work. I’m also exploring my new home in upstate NY, so I like to visit new towns and cities. If possible, I will always take the train somewhere because I enjoy the experience or rail life.
Do I Have a Favorite Team?
I’m originally from New York, so I grew up a Yankees fan. Over the years, I’m also becoming a Rays fan and enjoy watching them play when I travel to different parks. With the Rays not being a favorite team for most people, I find great ticket deals whenever they visit Boston or New York.
For the NBA, NHL, and NFL, I’m more of a casual fan. That means I’m always down to go to a game, but I don’t follow a team or sport as closely as I do with baseball. Baseball is the one sport that I follow all year and offseason.
Do I have a Favorite Sport?
The sport that I care the most about is baseball. My first baseball game came at the Old Yankee Stadium in 1994. I was only four at the time, but I remember sitting on the third-base side with my dad, his dad, and my uncle. As the years went by, I went to more baseball games at Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park, which is why baseball means so much to me.
I plan is to visit every MLB ballpark in my lifetime. As of December 2021, I’m over the halfway point. My goal is to visit the new Atlanta Braves Stadium in 2022.
Last Stadium Visit
Since I live in upstate New York, I have a 2.5-hour train ride to the city from Albany. A short 2.5-hour train ride allows me to get into the city more often, which means I can easily catch a baseball, hockey, and basketball games. However, seeing an NFL game is tricky since Buffalo is too far from me, and the Giants and Jets play in New Jersey.
January Popular Blogs
The blogs on the website are what drive the most sessions each month. I publish about fifteen new blog posts each month covering the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and more. Some of the content that I write is something that I know, while other times I research a topic because I find it interesting, and I think others might as well. Here are some of the most popular blog posts on the website as of now!
You can find parking information for every major sports team on this website as well. Each parking page has parking rates, when gates open, tailgating rules, and so much more. Finally, you’ll be able to reserve a parking space before driving to the venue, so take advantage of it! Below is the list of every NFL Stadium Parking page.
