    Section 118, Row C, Seats 13-14

    The seats behind visitors bench are close to the action but are very narrow. I had difficulty keeping my arms off the upholders. A somewhat heavy person likely wouldn't fit in those seats. I have attended games previously in cheaper seats and felt they are wider.

    • Plaza Level


      The lower bowl of American Airlines Center is called the Plaza Level. This is usually the first place fans look for tickets when attending a Mavs or Stars game. Your experience in the Plaza Level will depend on the type of event you're going to. For basketball games, we strongly recommend purchasing tickets in one of the eight sections that run along the sideline. It will cost extra to sit here, but you'll have better sitelines than if you sit behind the basket. There are a number of great options in the Plaza Level for hockey games. Corner sections give you a great angle towards center ice, while seats along the side allow you to see just how fast the game is. If you're a Stars fan - and you're not sitting near center ice - consider tickets near sections 108-117. The Stars shoot toward this net in the first and third periods. Or if money is no issue, consider the ultimate ticket: Glass Seats in the first row. Concert Tickets on the Plaza Level  The Plaza Level is a popular alternative to Floor Seats for concerts. Guests will still find close views and will have an easier time seeing over guests in front of them. The layout of the stage varies, but it is most often placed in front of sections 101 and 124. When this is the case, sections 105 and 120 are the best Plaza Level seats. 

    • For Basketball - Recommended For Great Views of the Court


      Excellent views of the both baskets from near center court. Great viewing height near the top of the lower seating tier. Easy access to and from the seats near the entry tunnels
