Avoid Row(s) 14-23 in Section(s) 213, 214, 215, 216, 217, 218, 219, 220, 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, 226, 227, 228, 229 and 230 for Football -
Obstructed seating at FedEx Field is a major issue for football games. Seeing long passes, kicks and the scoreboards is difficult from 200-level sections on the North side of the field.
The upper deck hangs over the back part of sections 213-230. Rows 14-23 are the most obstructed and the level of obstruction becomes more severe the farther back you are.
Section 219 - Section 219 row 21 seat 4 are obstructed view seats - The seller does not disclose that in his postings on stub hub. These are $29.00 face tickets that he is selling for $150, the same price as much better tickets for the same price.
FedEx Field is known for being home to some of the most obstructed views in football, and some will argue that the obstructed areas are even worse than what you might find at Wrigley or Fenway for a baseball game. But as long as you know which spots to avoid, and focus your ticket search on the recommendations below, you can certainly find some excellent options for taking in a football game.
Given the reputation, lets start out by highlighting those obstructed views which are primarily found in the 200 level along the north sideline. Sitting in rows 14 of sections 213-230 puts you at the greatest risk of not only having a support pillar directly in your line of sight, but you will also have to battle the overhang for a view of higher passes, kicks, and punts. Whenever possible, absolutely avoid any seats in rows 14 and up when sitting in the 200 level!
But now we move on to where the best views can be found, and the best place to start is in the upper seating rows of sections 101-103, 119-124, and 140-142. From these sections you get those desirable sideline viewing angles, while still feeling close to the action on the lowest seating tier. Opt for rows 19 and higher and you'll be at a great elevation for being able to see over the players and team personnel along the sidelines, and you're also no more than a 10 row walk from the concourse entry tunnel. Commanders fans will prefer being on the south sideline (101-103 and 140-142) as these are closer to the home team bench, while the visiting team fans will want to opt for north sideline sections 119-124.
We mentioned earlier about the dangers of the 200 level sections at the north sideline, but you can still find some really good views here as long as you rule out anything in rows 8 and higher (stick with rows 7 and under!). These lower row options in sections 219-224 have idyllic seating height for excellent viewing, and as an added bonus you'll be within 6 rows of the concourse tunnel. On the south sideline, the obstruction risk is far reduced as the seating sections do not extend further back than row 6 and have no pillars or overhangs to deal with. For a safe bet that ensures those desirable sideline views at a great elevation, most seats in south sideline sections 201-205 and 238-242 will do the trick.
While most football fans will always seek out those sideline viewing angles which provide equitable endzone to endzone sight lines, don't sleep on some of the options behind the uprights at FedEx Field. At the top of sections 110-112 and 131-133 (rows 20 and higher), you'll get a truly comfortable view of the field that requires little to no head turning at all. The viewing height is superb, you'll be close to the concourse, and you also get the benefit of head on lines of sight to the videoboard at the far end of the field.
Finally, if you're looking for cheap football tickets at FedEx Field and still want a decent view, consider searching in the first three rows of sections 401-402, 426-429, and 453-454. Be aware that these seats are quite high in the stadium, but they do keep you between the 20 yard lines where you get a good viewing experience to both ends of the field. Rows 1-3 will have you below the entry tunnel (which is located just above row 3), for closer proximity and easier access to the seats.

Best Seats for Impressing a Guest
There might not be a better spot in all of football for an impressive experience than the rightfully named Dream Seats at FedEx Field. Located almost at field level, these sections not only get you closer to the players than you could have imagined, they also come packed with premium benefits for Commanders games. All-inclusive food and beverage, in-seat wait service, and should you be able to talk yourself into leaving your incredible spot right next to the field, you can also access the decked out Club level concourse which is climate controlled for comfort. Dream Seat sections 1-3 and 40-42 will put you right behind the home team sideline, while sections 19-24 have you directly behind the visitors. Tickets will always command top dollar here and although the views of the game might be difficult due to a lack of elevation, the top flight benefits and ridiculous proximity to the players on the sideline are sure to leave a lasting impression.
Want a premium experience but don't have the budget for the Dream Seats? Try searching in the Club level near midfield (sections 301-302, 320-323, and 341-342). You actually get a better view here than the Dream Seats thanks to the optimal viewing height, so these might be a better choice if your guest is a die hard football fan. Close to midfield for great angles to both ends of the field, wider padded seating, in-seat wait service, climate controlled concourse ... the only thing missing is the all-inclusive food and beverage. When possible, opt for rows 1-9 to be in the lower portion of the section (below the entry tunnel found at row 10) where you'll have some of the best views of the field.
If the perks aren't what you're after, try searching for seats right by midfield at the top of the lower seating tier. 50 yard line views are always in high demand as they provide the most equitable all around views when watching a football game, and finding that on the lower level also gives you the excitement of feeling close to the action. Rows 24-28 will put you right at the top of the lower tier, providing great height for watching the game and keeping you within a short walk of all the amenities at the concourse. Sections 101 and 142 are the spots to pick for entertaining a Commanders fan thanks to the closer proximity to the home team sideline, while sections 121 and 122 are the better bet for bringing a visiting team fan.
And while our final spot for impressing your guest at FedEx Field doesn't come with premium bells and whistles or super close proximity, you will still get great views from the comforts of a more relaxed setting. This can be found in the seats near mid field along the 200 level south sideline (sections 201-203 and 240-242). The prime viewing position will earn you some good points with your guest, but the smaller seating sections are what push these over the top and into our list of recommendations. No more than 8 rows of seating allows for easy access to and from, and also creates a smaller, more comfortable environment where you'll be able to carry on a conversation while enjoying the view. Commanders fans will have an added bonus here, as the seats have you perched well for a good view of the near (home team) sideline.
Right by the 50 yard line for excellent all around views!
Excellent seating height and no more than 5 rows down from the entry tunnel
Best Seats for Kids and Family
With the upper tier of FedEx Field having incredibly steep walkway aisles, you'll want to stick with the lower levels when considering which sections to sit in for a family outing to a football game. Some of our favorite options for families at FedEx Field are the areas that provide a safer environment, convenient access, and comfortable viewing angles.
Among the best options for bringing your crew to a game will be sections 209-212 and 231-234 behind the endzones. From here, you're never more than a 7 row walk from the concourse to the seats and your little ones will get a great straight away view of the videoboard at the far endzone. There isn't much to be said for the overhead coverage, however the comfortable viewing angles requiring little to no head turning to experience all that the game has to offer.
But being able to stay out of inclement weather is always a plus for families at a ball game, and the best spot to do so is along the north sideline in the 200 level sections. Yes, these sections have some of the most obstructed views imaginable when sitting in the upper rows, however if you can strictly focus your search to rows 8-12 only, you will have excellent overhead coverage while avoiding the terrible viewing obstructions. Your crew will be well protected from the elements, and entry tunnels located at the front of the sections are not that far of a walk. Again, just be sure to avoid rows 13 and higher at all costs due to the poor views!
Also worth consider for a family outing at FedEx Field are 200 level corner sections 206-207 and 236-237. Being on the south sideline, you won't have to worry about obstructions but also don't won't get that same great overhead coverage which you can find in select rows of the 200 level sections on the north sideline. Corner seats help a bit more money compared to similar options closer to midfield, and the big draw to these seats when bringing your large group is the incredibly easy access. Each of these sections features no more than 6 rows in each, and the concourse entry tunnel is just beneath the very front row.
Small seating sections featuring no more than 6 rows in each allow for easy access
Corner positioning keeps ticket prices more affordable
On the south sideline where obstructions are far less prevalant
Best Seats for Visiting Team Fans
For a visiting team fan coming to FedEx Field for a football game, you will want to start off your search by focusing on the areas closest to the visiting team sideline (north sideline). Scoring a seat in sections 120-123 puts you right by midfield, and directly behind the visiting team bench for great views of the players when they're not on the field. Seats in the lower rows here keep you impressively close, but fans should take caution that some of the views may be difficult due to being so low to field level. Sitting higher in the sections (rows 19 and up) will get you the better overall view thanks to the additional elevation, but sacrifices the closer proximity to your team.
Just above the 100 level sections by the visiting team sideline, the lower rows of sections 219-224 are another great spot for fans of the opponents. You'll still feel close to your favorite players on the sideline, and have excellent sideline viewing angles. Just be sure to stick with rows 6 and lower where you'll find the best views and easiest access, and whatever you do, absolutely avoid rows 13 and higher at all costs due to the high likelihood of for viewing obstructions!
Should you find yourself working with a generous budget and want the end-all be-all of ultimate seats for a visiting team fan, look no further than Dream Seat sections 13-23. Loaded with premium benefits and being as close as it gets, these tickets are always among the priciest of all for football games at FedEx Field. Sideline Dream Seat sections 18-23 keep you right behind the opponent sideline, while Dream Seat sections 13, 14, and 17 put you right by the visiting team entry tunnel for a better chance at getting a high five. Even though the Dream Seats offer a truly incredible all around experience, be aware that the views are difficult when in one of the sideline options due to being so low to the field and behind the players.
If being near the team entry tunnel is something you enjoy as a visiting team fan, but you don't have the unlimited budget needed for a Dream Seat, consider searching in sections 113-114. The visitor's entry tunnel is located directly between these two sections, and fans in rows 8 and lower will have the best views of the players as they move between the field and the locker room. During the game, these seats will also provide a unique viewing angle down the visitors sideline allowing to keep tabs on your team at all times. Similarly, the lower rows (1-6) of sections 212-217 offer those unique views to the entry tunnel and the opponent sideline, but being a bit further up these seats will be more affordable. Again, just be sure to avoid any seat in rows 13 and higher when sitting in the 200 level!
Do Club SRO seats get the same Club amenities at FedEx Field?
Yes, with the Club Level SRO tickets you will be able to access the club concourse 2 hours prior to kickoff (the Hooters club level restaurant also opens 2 hours prior to the start of the game).
Afterward, you can head to the Audi Club outdoor patio (just outside sections 330-334) where you can enjoy the post game live music performance (also known as the 5th quarter) for two hours after the game has ended. Club Level SRO will have access to all of this during a Redskins game.
