Cohen Stadium is a 10,000 seat baseball stadium in Northeast El Paso, Texas. It has been home to the El Paso Diablos Minor League Baseball Team since 1990. The Diablos have been minor league affiliates of the California Angles, the Milwaukee Brewers and the Arizona Diamondbacks. They are now a part of the newly formed American Association of Independent Professional Baseball. Cohen Stadium is conveniently located only fifteen minutes from the El Paso International Airport and all portions of the city are within a thirty minute drive from the stadium.

In addition to the outdoor seating at Cohen Stadium, the Stadium houses twenty luxury sky suites and a spacious hospitality room.

Since Cohen Stadium opened in 1990, the El Paso Diablos have booked numerous acts for post-game concerts and stand alone events. Such acts include: The Beach Boys, Credence Clearwater Revival, The Temptations, Willie Nelson, The Doobie Brothers, Def Leppard, DJ Tiesto and many more. Cohen Stadium can be used for many other events beyond concerts. The Diablos have had many outdoor events that vary from boxing and wrestling matches to rugby games and flag football. The vast size of the stadium and the extensive field size allow events of nearly any type to be successfully held to Cohen Stadium. Cohen Stadium is a beautiful venue. With its bowled stadium seating and optional additional seating on the field, it is a tremendous stadium for an outdoor concert or event.
If the event involves a stage, ring, etc., it may be placed anywhere on the playing surface, providing a wide variety of seating capacities depending on the show requirements. Capacity could be anywhere from 5,000 (with the stage setting on one of the baselines, essentially cutting the stadium in half), to almost 20,000 (with the stage under the center field wall and a large number of seats/standing room on the field). A great aspect of Cohen Stadium is that regardless of the location of the stage, at no time is the spectator’s view obstructed. The main variable to consider is how many people are expected at the show. Once this number is determined, we can adjust the stage location as necessary to accommodate that number of seats.
STAGE: The El Paso Diablos own a stage available for events at Cohen Stadium. The stage measures up to 56’ x 38’ but can be smaller if preferred. Note: The portable stage does not have a roof or backdrop. A lighting structure, roof, and/or backdrop may be rented per concert specifications as needed.
ELECTRICITY: Two separate 250 AMP electrical hook-ups with pre-installed cam-lock tails are located in the 3rd base dugout. For larger shows or shows for which the stage will be placed deep in center field, generated power will be necessary.
VIDEO BOARD: The Diablos installed a state-of-the-art video board in 2006. The video board will enable events to be shown on the jumbo screen, allowing the audience to have a close up on all the action!
TICKETING: The El Paso Diablos have a ticketing system including an on-site box office as well as online ticket purchase capability. Lessees of Cohen Stadium have the option of using the Diablos ticketing system.
HOSPITALITY ROOMS: Cohen Stadium houses 20 luxury sky suites and The Hall of Fame Room: a large, fully-catered hospitality room that can hold up to 75 people. Lessees may be able to have use of up to two sky suites and the Hall of Fame Room, depending on the size and specific agreement of the event. These areas are great places for the event’s artists and performers to relax before and after the show and the perfect places to entertain the event’s top sponsors.
DRESSING ROOMS: Both clubhouses can be made available as dressing rooms during all concerts not in conjunction with a baseball game. The visitor’s clubhouse is located down the first base line, and the home clubhouse is down the third base line. Both clubhouses are large, open rooms with a smaller room normally designated as the coach’s locker room. The umpire’s locker room, located next to the visitor’s clubhouse, is a
smaller dressing area also available for these concerts. In situations where multiple dressing areas are a must, RV’s may be brought in as additional dressing rooms for the Artists. These RV’s will be parked in a secure, fenced in area behind the outfield wall, away from normal pedestrian traffic and close to the field/stage access. These spacious RV’s will have electric outlets, bathroom facilities, air conditioning, refrigerators and many other conveniences. This area may also serve well as a parking area for tour buses.
COST: Stadium rental is negotiable depending on size and type of event.For booking inquiries please call or email General Manager, Matt LaBranche or Marketing and Events Manager, Henry Quintana at (915) 755-2000. Please see stadium rental details by clicking below:
