When looking at the San Diego State seating chart, the most expensive seats are in the 100 level sections along the sidelines. Each of these sections include chairback seats within 25 rows of the field.
When comparing east sideline seats to west sideline seats, a slight edge goes to sections 108-114. These sections are less susceptible to the sun than sections 129-135.
If avoiding the sun is your primary objective, almost all seats on along the west sideline will be mostly shaded for afternoon kickoffs. In sections on the visitor side of the field, Rows M and above see the best overhead cover, but you may want to sit even a few rows higher to guarantee yourself some shade.
Sitting Here for Football
Its primary use as a soccer stadium leaves extra room between the first row of seats and the field of play. Additionally, the front rows have minimal elevation over the players and coaches.
In fact, a number of the lower rows in these sections are being listed as obstructed seats. There aren't any structural obstructions, but seeing over the sideline will be difficult.
We encourage fans to purchase tickets in rows R and above, which will be better elevated, better protected from the sun and closer to the concourse.
