Arlington, Texas - Globe Life Park, former home of the Texas Rangers between 1994 and 2019, has been renamed to Choctaw Stadium, as part of a multi-year naming rights agreement between the Rangers and Choctaw Casinos & Resorts.
The former MLB ballpark will continue to be used as a multi-purpose sports and entertainment venue. Numerous events, including college and high school football, pro soccer, and Major League rugby, are slated to be hosted in the near future, according to team officials. Since the Rangers moved to Globe Life Field, the newly named Choctaw Stadium was used as a venue for the XFL's Dallas Renegades and Texas UIL high school football games.
This naming rights agreement is just the latest development in a partnership that the Rangers and Choctaw Casinos & Resorts have had since 2010. In May 2019, the two announced an extension in their partnership that brands Choctaw as the official and exclusive casino and resort of the ballclub, and also includes a significant presence at Globe Life Field, the new home of the Rangers.
Over the years the stadium has been known as the Ballpark in Arlington, Ameriquest Field, and Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. It had been known as Globe Life Park since 2014. The Rangers played their last official game at the ballpark on Sept. 29, 2019.
