Seating Overview

When purchasing tickets for Florida State football, seating choices are fairly straightforward. The decisions that have to be made are:

  • Do you want the amenities of club seats?
  • What kind of view do you want?
  • How far from the field do you want to be?


Club Seats

The primary advantages of club seats are indoor lounge access and chairback seating. Fans pay top dollar for a comfortable experience, despite the mediocre view from the endzone.

Better Views Along the Sideline

To get the best views at Doak Campbell Stadium, you'll want to combine a sideline view with the perfect elevation. Our favorite seats in sections 7-13 and 29-36 are rows 30-50. These are just below the upper section tunnel and have comfortable views of the action.

Other Notes

  • Besides for Club Seats, most sections are heavily exposed to the sun
  • The west/Florida State side will be shaded first
  • Most seating is bench-style without back support

Doak Campbell Stadium Seat Views

Best Seats for Great Views of the Field

Prior to the renovations that installed club seating on the south end of the field, Doak Campbell Stadium was a rather bland college football venue. With the recent upgrades; however, Florida State fans now have another option when it comes to finding great seats.

Choosing the Right Row on the Sideline

Even with the renovations, the best views at a FSU football game come from the elevated rows of sections 8-12 and 31-35. Specifically, rows 35-50 in these sections are the cream of the crop.

Because the main seating bowl is so low to the ground, players on the sidelines can impact your view - even if you're sitting as high as row 25. Add to that a lot of crowding around the entrance tunnels at row 10 and you're best off buying tickets in a higher row to guarantee an unobstructed view. These upper rows (35-50) will also keep you close to another entrance tunnel where you can escape to the restroom or concessions.

While sections 8-12 and 31-35 offer identical views, seats on the west sideline (31-35) are the preferred choice. Not only is this the Florida State side of the field, but it's also the less-sunny side. The sun sets behind these sections and will be at your back instead of staring you down all afternoon.

Best Club Level Views

By placing the new club seats above the endzone instead of along the sideline, Florida State chose comfort over sitelines. The club sections are best seats for staying cool, and they also offer the most comfortable view of the north videoboard.

While you won't find sitelines nearly as good as you would along the sideline, there are still some club sections that combine a comfortable experience with a very good view. Our favorite sections include 216, 217, 225, 226 and the 300s sections directly above. These sections are situated in the corner of the endzone - affording them a comfortable view towards midfield without any major obstruction from the goalposts. Views towards the other end of the field can get a bit long, but the north videoboard is nearly head-on and can help you keep track of what you missed.

Rows 35-50 in Sections Section 8, Section 9, Section 10 and Section 11

  • Great view between the 20 yardlines
  • Just the right amount of height to see the whole field
  • Close to the concourse tunnel

Rows 80-85 in Sections Section 9, Section 10 and Section 11

  • One of the few covered areas in the stadium
  • Midfield location for comfortable views
  • Elevated landscape of the entire field and stadium

Sections Club 216, Club 217, Club 225 and Club 226

  • Best views from the club seats without any goalpost obstructions
  • Some of the best views of the north end videoboard
  • Small sections for easy access to club amenities

Recommended Seats for Kids and Family

Sections 317 and 318

  • Small sections so it is easy to get to the concourse to get concessions
  • On the side of the field with the most shade
  • Cheaper tickets on the highest level of seating

  • Venue & Seating Questions

    • Where is the best section for rival fans to sit together at Doak Campbell?

      Some of the best seats for a diverse crowd will be found in the South endzone. Sections 118-123, 220-225, and 323-326 are the best options as these seats are available in the lower pricing tiers, and are not reserved strictly for alumni donors, visiting team fans only, or students.

      Areas to Avoid

      You will want to avoid sections near the north endzone as many of these are reserved for FSU students only (Sections 1-7, 40-41), and most of the sideline sections are populated by alumni donors who are also season ticket holders.

      Consider Visitor Seating

      The visiting team ticket allotment is reserved in Sections 117, 217-219, and 317-321. These areas generally provide a good mix of Seminole and away fans, but they can also become tense at times.

    • How many rows in each section at Doak Campbell Stadium?
      Each section has a varying amount of rows and seats. Find a section to see row and/or seat numbers.
    • Is seat number 1 on the left or right side of sections?
      As you look towards the field from your seats, lower number seats are on your right.
