    Great view - but terrible to be an opposing fan

    Sep 2023

    Section 40, Row 22, Seat 23

    The view from these seats is great! You are directly at the 30 yard line, good site line. The problem is, you are right next to the student section (which also includes seats directly behind you). If you are with the visiting team, you'll be much better off sitting in your designated section with your own fans. It'll be a lot cheaper and a lot more enjoyable. Better yet, stay home and watch it on tv. Worst experience I've ever had at a college football game.

    • Lower Level Sideline


      The best seats at the Swamp for seeing the action on the field are found along the sidelines in the lower level. These large sections each feature 50 rows of seating with the entrance tunnels located near Row 32. Sitting near this row makes for easy exits to restrooms and concessions, while also providing an ideal amount of elevation for seeing the game. Seats closer to the field in Rows 10 and below are very low to the field. This gives you a vantage point that only coaches and players ever get to experience. But it may also be difficult to see each side of the field with the aforementioned coaches and players in your way. The Florida sideline sits along sections 2-16 on the less sunny side of the field. The sun will set behind these sections in the late afternoon, providing some relief from bright light - and eventually shade. On the sunny side of the field you'll find Gators students occupying sections 30-44. 

    • Portal Box Seats


      One of the most interesting seating options at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium are the Portal Boxes that are found on the east and west sidelines. Each Box is a collection of (usually) 4 seats in a semi-private space. These are sometimes referred to as Barstool Boxes because they include small ledges. Some boxes include standing areas, while others have chairback seats. Box Seats are found above the tunnels in odd and even-numbered sections along the sideline. In even-numbered sections they are found row near 40 and have some of the best overall views of the field. 

    • Recommended For Partying and Socializing


      Designated student section. Great opportunity to party among rowdy students

    • Recommended For Great Views of the Field


      Great elevated view between the 20 yardlines. Best views of players on the near sideline and far sideline. Close to the section entrance tunnel without the distractions of being too close
