Looking to bring the best experience to their fans the New York Mets will have two new additions to Citi Field starting in the 2023 MLB Season.

First up the Mets along with Samsung Electronics were able to make history with the installment of the largest scoreboard across all professional ballparks. Those entering into Citi Field will have a chance to enjoy a dual-sided centerfield video board that features a 17,400 square foot LED Screen on front to go along with 6,900 square feet on the back.

“As an emerging New York landmark, Citi Field continues to set itself apart with the integration of cutting-edge display technology that enhances the in-stadium experience for fans,” said James Fishler, Senior Vice President, Display and Home Entertainment Division, Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung is a proud partner of the Mets and with the installment of the first-of-its-kind, double-sided LED display, we are excited to help the franchise reach the next level of technology innovation in professional sports.”

In addition, fans will have a chance to check out The K Korner, which is going to operate in the former McFadden’s location on Seaver Way. The K Korner set to open on Thursday, April 6, will allow fans to enjoy food and beverages before, during and after all the home games this season.

Mets fans will recognize the name The K Korner, as that is a nod to Section 44 at Shea Stadium. It was named that way thanks to Doc Gooden and the interaction fans had with him after displaying K signs for each of his strikeouts.

For those wanting to check out The K Korner they can do so by entering into the venue two ways. As fans with tickets can enter into the venue through Citi Field, and those without tickets can also access this amazing spot.

“This year, we’re focused on making Citi Field not just a place to watch the Mets, but also a social space for people to gather,” Mets Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Jeff Deline said. “Mets fans have been waiting for a space like The K Korner for years and we’re thrilled to provide an option for them to spend even more time at Citi Field cheering on their team and enjoying our robust menu.”

Some of the food items at The K Korner include Pizza bagels from PopUp Bagels, cheese curds, wings, steakhouse melts and more.
