After playing the 2012 season at Qwest Field/CenturyLink Field, the University of Washington is moving back in to a newly renovated Husky Stadium. The Washington Huskies football team will open up the remodeled field on August 31, 2013 when they host Boise State. Tickets are already in high demand with a current get-in price of $130 (tickets). According to the official website for Husky Stadium,, there were a variety of changes and improvements:

  • Premium seating program with luxury suites, patio suites and Club Husky
  • Track removed and the field lowered (4 feet) and shifted north (about 7 feet) to optimize seat values and sightlines
  • Football operations support building housing locker rooms, weight rooms, team meeting rooms, recruiting lounges, player lounges and coaches offices integrated into the west end zone
  • Complete demolition and reconstruction of the lower bowl and the south side stands
  • Renovation of the Don James Center
  • 200-stall parking garage constructed below the south bowl and stands
  • Permanent east end zone seating
  • Large landscaped plazas and grounds with no perimeter fencing

Husky Stadium Seating Tips

  • The videoboard is above Sections 135-139. For a better angle at the board in sideline seating, choose Sections 108, 208, 308, 127, 227, 327, etc. over Sections 104, 204, 304, 131, 231, 331, etc.
  • If choosing seats in a high-numbered row in the 300 level, choose seats on the North side (Sections 325-333) because of the double tunnel. There is only one tunnel per section on the south side of the 300 level, which makes for longer walks up and down the stairs.
  • The 300 level is incredibly well shaded by the roof overhang. For late afternoon games, lower rows in Sections 308-311 and 325-327 may be susceptible to the sun.
  • For chairback seating, choose one of the club seating options (Club Husky or Don James Center) on the 200 level or Sections 105-107, 128-130 on the lower level. All other seating is on metal benches.
  • For wonderful views of Lake Washington and the Olympics, Club Husky and Don James Center seating offer access to a private viewing deck with abundant vistas.
