Seating Overview

The Carrier Dome hosts several unique events, from concerts to basketball and football. When picking seats, it's important to understand the event's seating chart and the different available ticket options.

Best Seats for Football

For Syracuse football games, the majority of the stadium is usually open. The best seats - Premium A-D- are located in the 100 and 300 Level sections closest to midfield.

Among the cheaper tickets, we recommend endzone seats on the 200 Level or the front rows of sections on the 300 Level. Your view may be a little higher up, but the seats are easily accessible and amenities are closer by.

Best Seats for Basketball

Seating options at the Carrier Dome change significantly for basketball games. The court runs perpendicular to the football field. As a result, side seats for football become end seats for basketball and vice versa.

As with football, the top-tier tickets are usually labeled Premium Seats. Among these, sections 107-110 and 122-125 have the best views. But we prefer 107-110 because they are permanent seats (sections 122-125 are temporary seats only for basketball) and have better access to the concourse.

  • 200 Level Seats are also an excellent option for basketball
  • Edge sections like 320 and 321 are only open for big games (e.g.: Duke) and expectations should be tempered

Aisle Seating

The Carrier Dome uses aisles for numbering. This means that an aisle splits a like-numbered section in the middle.

Family Section (Football) for Syracuse Games

For Syracuse football games, select seats in sections 332 and 333 make up the family section. These seats do not allow alcohol and the seats are padded.
