The Tampa Bay Rays will no longer be accepting PDF tickets and paper tickets at Tropicana Field when the 2020 Major League Baseball season begins. Baseball fans will instead be required to download the MLB ballpark app to a mobile device in order to gain entry into Tropicana Field. During the 2019 Major League Baseball season, Tropicana Field welcomed both paper tickets and mobile tickets. Most Major League Baseball teams are taking similar measures to ensure that baseball fans have the safest and most convenient way of accessing their tickets.

In conjunction with the mobile ticketing decision, the Tampa Bay Rays are also launching a ballpark pass subscription program for local fans. For $36 per month, members will receive a standing room only ticket to every Tampa Bay Rays home game. Discounts on tickets will continue to be offered to seniors during weekday home games ($15), and for kids that belong to the Rays Rookies Club. The Tampa Bay Rays will also provide free tickets for select games via the Salute to Service program (teachers, military, etc.). The Tampa Bay Rays also converted Tropicana Field into a cash-free stadium in 2019; one of the first Major League Baseball teams to do so.
