The Dayton Dragons are planning to unveil a new addition to Fifth Third Field this season.

Fans visiting the ballpark downtown will discover a new and improved “Dragons Lair” in left field that includes updates to the flooring, furniture and other amenities.

In a statement scheduled to be released Thursday, team president Robert Murphy said the club intends for it to be a “high-end, all-inclusive hospitality area” for fans looking to host groups such as clients, employees or families.

“We created a brand-new ticketing product that we feel the fans will enjoy,” Murphy said. “We are creating a new group seating area: Our newest upgrade to Fifth Third Field.”

The updated section will be named for AZEK Building Products.

The company is taking care of the renovation of the area, including supplying premium decking products that are made in Wilmington.

AZEK chief marketing office Julia Fitzgerald said the company is excited to invest in the community.

“We are proud to announce our multi-year naming rights agreement for the Dragons Lair, and we’re looking forward to getting involved with this great organization where fans can enjoy the new space,” she said. “Better yet, the Fifth Third Field team won’t have to worry about deck upkeep, allowing everyone to truly enjoy the AZEK Dragons Lair.”

The section will include 120 tickets with the option to expand that as high as 200, and the club says there will be variable pricing in April ($32.50 per person), May ($34.50) and the summer months ($38.50).

The area will include wait service and a cash beer and wine bar can be included.

Fifth Third Field opened in 2000 and had a listed capacity of 7,230 last season.
