Busch Stadium Seat Views

Best Seats for Great Views of the Field

A number of excellent seating options exist for fans visiting Busch Stadium. Among the most impressive are the seats on the club level between sections 241 and 257. Located on the second level of the stadium, these seats offer a true club-style view from just above the lower level. Each of these sections is located on the infield and will give fans unobstructed views of the field, scoreboard and even the skyline and arch.

One of the best aspects of Busch Stadium is the shape of the field on the 100 level. Infield seats are pushed farther away from the field, which allows seats down the left field and right field lines to angle towards home plate. This creates more comfortable sitelines towards the infield - where about 85% of the action takes place. Among these seats, our favorites are those down the left field line at the front of sections 164-166. These seats face home plate, which is unusual for seats not located in home run territory. They're also located just a few feet above field level and give you the feeling of playing the outfield for the Redbirds.

Other seats with a great view include seats behind home plate at the top of the 100 level or those at the front of the 300 level. Just be careful in the first two rows in the 300s - the railing will disrupt your view; you're better off in rows 3-5 where you have a clear siteline.

Rows 1-6 in Sections Section 241, Section 242, Section 244 and Section 245

  • Best elevated sitelines at Busch Stadium
  • Beautiful views of the arch and comfortable looks at the scoreboard

Rows A-F in Sections Section 164, Section 165 and Section 166

  • Outstanding angle towards home plate - right down the line
  • Close to field level giving you the same view the left-fielder has
  • Some of the best head-on looks into the Cardinals dugout

Best Seats for Views of the Arch

Busch Stadium offers some of the finest non-baseball views of any ballpark. Fans seated near home plate on any level of the ballpark are treated to outstanding vistas of the arch and downtown St. Louis.

For the best views of the arch, consider seats on the third base side of the field in the Terrace (300/400) Level. These seats provide some of the most beautiful head-on views of the arch, along with quality views of the field and the main scoreboard.

Sections Section 250, Section 251, Section 252 and Section 253

  • Best overall views of the arch and the right center-field videoboard
  • Elevated location also allows for more comfortable views of the game

Best Seats for Impressing a Guest

The first seats that come to mind when Cardinals fans think about an impressive experience are the Green Seats located directly behind home plate. Not only do these seats give fans first-rate views of the field, they come with such conveniences as in-seat wait service and all-inclusive pricing; not to mention your chances of being on TV are very good.

One of the lesser-known all-inclusive areas at Busch Stadium is the Champions Club down the LF line. Like the Cardinals Club (Green Seats), ticketholders will enjoy all-inclusive food and drink and access to a private reception area. However, when compared to the Cardinals Club, tickets in the Champions Club are usually far more affordable. These seats also have the advantage of being protected from the rain and sun – a desirable feature during the hot St. Louis summers. The nearby Bank of America Club also offers an all-you-can-eat buffet and weather-protected seating.

Other impressive areas at Busch Stadium include the Redbird Club seats on the 200 level. While fans will have access to the climate-controlled club area and exclusive concessions, these seats do not include any wait service or all-inclusive pricing.

Finally, The Commissioner's Box seats located just to the right of the Cardinals dugout are among the most highly sought-after tickets for a Cards game. These seats give Cardinals fans the closest views of their favorite players, outstanding service and complimentary food and drink. Unlike other impressive areas; however, the Commissioner's Box is just a single section with ticket inventory extremely limited.

Sections Cardinals Club 1, Cardinals Club 2, Cardinals Club 3 and Cardinals Club 4

  • All-inclusive seating areas
  • Your ticket includes food and drink
  • Tickets also include access to exclusive club areas

Sections Section 248, Section 249, Section 250 and Section 251

  • Access to the climate-controlled lounge and upscale concessions
  • Closest seats to the Redbird Lounge for quick getaways and breaks
  • Some of the best views of the field and the arch

Best Seats for Kids and Family

Generally speaking, fans at Busch Stadium are well-behaved and create a family friendly atmosphere. As a result, there aren't many seats that are off-limits for bringing the kids. Instead, you'll want to pay close attention to finding seats out of the sun (during day games) and seats that are close to the amenities kids frequent (concession stands and restrooms).

One area to visit before or during the game is the kids area in center-field near section 101. This fully-covered and shaded area offers kids a chance to take batting practice, test the speed of their pitch and enjoy healthy kid-friendly snacks. A new Build-a-Bear is also located nearby on the center-field plaza.

For families with a healthier budget, consider the top rows of sections 152-154. These sections are close to the Busch Stadium Build-a-Bear where your young one can build a Fredbird and take it home as a memory to cherish. Even if you don't want to spend the money on another stuffed animal, these sections are smaller than average so you'll have an easy time getting in and out to grab a snack or to take a bathroom break. As an added bonus, the views from these seats are among the best in the stadium.

If your budget is a little thinner, we recommend seats in sections 352-357 and 452-454 (choose the 400s for a hot or sunny day). These sections will receive shade long before seats on the first base side and are close to the main food plaza behind home plate. Once again, the views from these sections are also above average.

Among seats you want to explicitly avoid are those in RF and down the RF line on all levels. These areas get incredibly hot during day games and are directly in the sun in the early innings of summer games. If you're seated here or considering sitting here, be sure to pack the sunscreen and make sure everyone has a hat and sunglasses.

Rows 18-26 in Sections Section 152, Section 153 and Section 154

  • Small sections that make it easy to get to the concourse
  • Near the Build-A-Bear store in the stadium
  • Fans can make their own Fredbird to take home, great for children

Rows 5-9 in Sections Section 352, Section 353, Section 354 and Section 355

  • Within five rows of the section entrance for small climbs to the concourse
  • Close to the main food plaza and restrooms
  • Good views of the field and the arch

Rows 1-5 in Sections Section 452, Section 453 and Section 454

  • Within five rows of the concourse and main food plaza
  • Among the first seats to be shaded during day games
  • Lowest ticket price among seats near home plate

Best Seats for Partying and Socializing

With St. Louis being the home of Anheuser-Busch, it's not surprising that Busch Stadium has a number of areas that cater to beer-drinking baseball fans.

Before or after the game, consider stopping by Ballpark Village – the sports and entertainment hub of downtown St. Louis. There you'll find restaurants, bars, live radio shows and one of the largest television screens in the city. This is also the area where Rooftop and Deck seating has been added. Although they're technically not within Busch Stadium, these are ticketed seating locations with views of the game and additional amenities.

For fans looking to drink within the gates of Busch Stadium, there are no shortages of options. Nearly every lower level section is close to some combination of frozen drinks, premium liquor and, of course, Bud products. Left field, in particular, is close to a high concentration of adult beverages and is one of the best places to sit and enjoy a cold one at a Cardinals game.

Meanwhile, fans seated in the Left Field Porch sections will be close to the Bowtie Bar and Bottoms Up. This area features a large central bar, bar seating, table seating and drink rails – making it a preferred option among fans looking for room to socialize.

For fans seated on the 200 level, there are bars on either side of the field for Redbird Club ticketholders and a number of drink options near section 266 for non-club patrons. On the Terrace Level, most alcohol is purchased through common concession stands – though there is plenty of space to congregate on the concourse with friends while still keeping an eye on the game.

Sections Left Field Porch 1, Left Field Porch 2 and Left Field Porch 3

  • Upscale bar located behind this section
  • Great place for socializing and still watching the game
  • Lots of televisions nearby for watching replays

Rows 11-25 in Sections Section 189, Section 191, Section 193 and Section 195

  • Close access to one of the best selections of beverages at Busch Stadium
  • Close to the 1876 Bar, Whiskey and Vodka bars and margaritas
  • Fun outfield atmosphere without as much direct sun as in RF

Best Seats for Getting a Ball

The sharp angles of seats down the line at Busch Stadium make it one of the more interesting ballparks for catching a foul ball. In particular, the seats known as the Dugout Boxes (132-139, 161-166) jut out towards the field and make them exciting places to sit when balls are fouled off. For fans on other levels of the park, seating on the infield does attract some souvenirs. However, note that some of the overhangs providing you shade will also prevent you from catching a ball.

The dugouts used to be a popular spot for getting a ball - as the players would typically toss some out before the game and between innings. But with the netting now extended to the ends of the dugouts, it is difficult to get a ball from these seats. Instead, consider the first ten rows of sections 141 and 159 which now receive a majority of these between-inning souvenirs.

As far as the fans are concerned, Busch Stadium is one of the most unfriendly ballparks for catching a home run. The large bullpens in left and right field swallow up a number of would-be souvenirs. For your best chance at going home with a longball, you'll want to find seats in one of the first five rows of the outfield. The dimensions of Busch Stadium, coupled with some space between the fence and fans, make it unlikely that balls reach any of the higher rows.

Rows 1-5 in Sections Section 127, Section 128, Section 171 and Section 172

  • Highest concentration of home run balls, especially in the first three rows
  • Sections 171-197 see the most homers from right-handers
  • Sections 127-128 see the most homers from left-handers

Rows A-L, 1-7 in Sections Section 133, Section 134, Section 135 and Section 136

  • Excellent angle towards home plate and seeing foul balls off the bat
  • In sections 135-140, be alert for foul balls from right-handed batters
  • In sections 161-165, be alert for foul balls from left-handed batters

Best Seats for Visiting Team Fans

St. Louis is known for having some of the most knowledgeable and friendly fans in all of baseball. It's not uncommon for visiting team fans to be warmly welcomed into Busch Stadium. As a result, almost any area of the ballpark is ideal for an away team fan – unless, of course, you're a fan of the Cubs.

If being close to your favorite players is your goal, you'll want to sit behind your team's dugout or near the visitor bullpen. Because the bullpens are located in the outfield, there is a large cost discrepancy between the two areas. If your budget allows it, first consider seats in sections 155-158 behind the visitor dugout where Row D is directly behind the players. For a cheaper option, try sections 189-193 in the left field bleachers where the visiting pitchers warm up before and during the game.

Rows D-L in Sections Section 155, Section 156, Section 157 and Section 158

  • Seats within 8 rows of the visitor dugout
  • See the players up-close as they warm up and enter/exit the dugout during the game
  • Outstanding views to all areas of the ballpark

Sections Section 189, Section 191 and Section 193

  • Watch the pitchers as they warm up in front of sections 189-191
  • Close to St. Louis local bar stands, including the Whiskey House and 1876

    Venue & Seating Questions

    • What does standing room only mean at Busch Stadium?

      There are designated areas at the top of most non-premium seating sections where standing room only ticket holders can stand and watch the game. Standing room only space is not reserved and available on a first come first serve basis, so we recommend getting to the ballpark as early as possible to claim the best spots (Busch Stadium gates generally open 2 hours prior to the start of the game).


      It is the policy of Busch Stadium that all guests sit only in their ticketed seats, so while moving to empty seats may be tempting, please be aware that guests who do not abide by the ticketed seating policy are at risk of being ejected from the stadium.

    • Is food included with Dugout Box seats at Busch Stadium?

      The Dugout Box seats are located in the lettered seating rows (closest to the field) of Sections 132, 135-139, and 161-166. Unfortunately food is not included with the price of a ticket in these areas. Below is a list of where you can find all-inclusive tickets at Busch Stadium:



      • Cardinals Club (Sections 1-8 Behind Home Plate)

      • Bank of America Club (Sections 258-260)

      • UMB Champions Club

      • Commissioner's Box

      • Legends Club Suite

      • Coca Cola Rooftop Deck, Coca Cola Patio

      • Powerade Bridge

      • Homer's Landing, Left Field Landing

      • MVP Deck
    • What time do the gates open at Busch Stadium?

      With the resounding success of Ballpark Village, the area around Busch Stadium is a popular hangout before, during and after the game. Because the area attracts so many fans to the game so early, the Cardinals are known for having one of the earliest-arriving crowds in all of baseball.

      For weekday games Monday through Thursday, the ballpark gates open 90 minutes prior to first pitch. For night games starting at 7:15, the gates will open promptly at 5:45 and you'll have an opportunity to see the visiting team take batting practice (if the weather permits).

      For Friday and weekend games the gates open a full two hours before first pitch, giving fans more time to explore the ballpark. If you plan on arriving early for batting practice, do know that it is uncommon for teams to BP before early afternoon games.

    • Where can I find more additional legroom at Busch Stadium?

      Busch Stadium is a highly segmented park with multiple levels of seating from the 100 level to the 400 level. Generally speaking, fans will find the most comfortable seats to be in the 100 level where many of the chairs are padded and a number of walkways create breaks in the seating.

      400 level legroom
      Additional legroom in row 1, as seen from section 428

      For fans considering seats in another area of the stadium, one of the best places to find more legroom is in Row 1 of the 400 level. Unlike the 200 and 300 levels where you walk down from the concourse towards Row 1 - the first row in the 400 level is at the section entrance. Because of this, additional room is added between the railing and row 1. For some shorter fans the railing may prove to be a distraction - but for larger guests the extra space to spread out is a blessing.

    • Between which rows are the breaks in seating on the 100 level at Busch Stadium?

      Some lower level sections at the Cardinals' Busch Stadium contain as many as 40 rows of seating. In some of these larger sections, there are walkways that break up the seating. Some fans prefer sitting close to these quick exits, while others are constantly distracted by people in the walkway.

      Walkway Locations

      Most lower level sections can be categorized as no walkway, single-walkway and double-walkway.

      Sections behind the Green Seats, including 146-154 are continuous and are not interrupted by a walkway. These sections are made up of only numbered rows with row 1 always closest to the field. For sections closer to the player dugouts (like 141-145 and 155-159), rows are also continuous with lettered rows followed by numbered rows.

      As you move down the line, the sections become a little more complicated. Some of these sections are interrupted by a single walkway, while others are interrupted twice. For these sections that have lettered rows, a small walkway is located between the last lettered row (usually L or M) and the first numbered row (Row 1). Fans seated in Row 1 in these sections may be highly distracted by patrons in the walkway.

      busch stadium walkways
      An example of a section with multiple walkways

      Furthermore, in these sections down the line, a large walkway separated rows 20 and above from the rest of the seating section. Fans seated in rows 20 and above will feel like they're in a separate seating section as these rows are elevated above lower rows and are accessible only by a small set of stairs. Sitting in rows 20 and above will provide more shade, while sitting in rows 15-19 will give you near instant access to the concourse tunnel.

    • What time can you arrive before the game?

      For a Tuesday night game, gates will open 90 minutes before first pitch. For the 7:15 start time, you will be able to enter the stadium as early as 5:45.

    • How many rows in each section at Busch Stadium?
