Built as a joint venture by the Village of Schaumburg and the Schaumburg Park District in 1999, the Schaumburg Boomers play all of their home games at Schaumburg Boomers Stadium located at the southeast corner of the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway at Springinsguth Road (adjacent to Schaumburg Metra Station). The park is just five minutes west of I-290 and 8 miles southwest of Woodfield Mall. The $17 million stadium was designed by Sink Combs Dethlefs Architects and built by Turner Construction to the exact same dimensions as Wrigley Field, the historic, landmark home of the Chicago Cubs.
With a capacity of 7,365 fans with 5,665 fixed seats, the ballpark also includes 16 luxury suites, 200 outfield bleacher seats and an additional 900 fans can be accommodated in the lawn area along both foul lines. The Schaumburg Club located on the first base side of the suite level features restaurant style seating complete with a full bar and glass-enclosed viewing of the game and is also available for private parties and banquets year round.
In October, 2011, Roger Bossard aka "The Sodfather" installed a brand new playing surface at Schaumburg Boomers Stadium. The longtime Chicago White Sox groundskeeper and veteran of field installation for 12 MLB clubs and countless other fields, Bossard not only oversaw the project but personally laid virtually every roll of new sod installed during the three week long process.
