Best Seats For a Concert at FTX Arena
The most common seating layout at FTX Arena for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 101, Section 102 and Section 103. For many concerts there are also slight variations to the layout, which may include General Admission seats, fan pits and B-stages.
On the Floor: Sections Floor 1, Floor 2, Floor 3 and Floor 4 are Floor Seats, which offer some of the closest views of the performers. For many concerts, floor sections are added or removed. These performer-specific adjustments may alter the floor layout and the views from each floor section.
To the Side of the Stage: For close views of the stage with a little bit of elevation, consider seats to the side of the stage in Section 104, Section 105, Section 106 and Section 107. The view is not head-on like on the floor, but many of the seats are closer to the stage, provide better elevation and are actual stadium seats.
Head-on to the Stage: Seats directly across from the stage, like those in Floor 1, Floor 2, Floor 3 and Floor 4 provide the most comfortable looks of the performance. Even upper level sections offer unobstructed sitelines. Just keep in mind that you won't be able to see as much detail from these seats as you would if you sat closer to the stage.
Consider the Following When Buying Concert Tickets
Seats behind the stage are occassionally sold: Unless your main objective is to just get in the building, you'll want to completely avoid anything behind the stage - like those in/near or above sections Section 101, Section 102, Section 103 and Section 122. It's unlikely the performer will turn around to salute you - and you're more likely to be completely blocked out from seeing the show.
If you're on the shorter side (or bringing kids), consider floor seats only in the first few rows: The most common complaint amongst floor ticketholders is that they can't see the stage because of taller people in front of them. As an alternative, consider side sections near the stage that will still have you close and high enough to see.
Lower level side sections are not created equal: While the side sections closest to the stage are top-notch, side sections farther from the stage may leave you with a cramp in your neck. Sections 117 and 108 are not well-angled towards the stage - leaving you to turn your head for an ideal view. Instead, consider head-on sections in the lower level or even close side seats in the upper level like Sections 307 and 306.
The first eight rows of baseline seating is taken up by premium seating. Stairs between baseline sections means no one is sitting directly behind the basket, but many of the views will still be obstructed by the basket.
For gluten free options, check out concessions in Section 101.
100 Level Center (Basketball) Seating
Sections 106-107 and 118-119 offer views in between the free throw lines and all of these sections come with wheelchair accessible seating behind row 23 (the entrance to these seats is at Row 25).
The variety of food in these sections is also particularly impressive. You can find gyros in Section 117 and a carvery and sushi station just 2 sections over in 119. Every section also features a bar no farther than one section away.
100 Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
When choosing corner seats in the lower level, avoid the first ten rows in Sections 104, 109, 116 and 121. These seats have a poor angle towards center court, which means you'll have to make up for it by twisting your body or head to see the majority of the action.
In the higher rows, uncomfortable views are less of an issue. Section 111 features a bar, gyros and an ATM to pay for it all -- plus a men's restroom for good measure.
300 Level Baseline (Basketball) Seating
With just six rows of seating, the baseline seats on the 300 level are another good option for fans who are worried about seeing over people in front of them. Unfortunately, the cross-court views are poor and the amenities are lacking.
300 Level Center (Basketball) Seating
The 300 level seats are a great option for fans who are looking to save money. Sections 308-309 and 324-325 will give you a center court view at about a third of the cost of lower level center seating. Sections 323-326 will also have you looking directly at the player benches.
These sections are relatively steep, so focus on tickets closest to row 4, which is where the entrance to the concourse can be found. Both sides of the court feature multiple bars, but the concession options are not as plentiful as in the lower level.
300 Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
Some of the smallest sections in the arena are in the 300 Level Corner. Sections 303-304, 313-314, 319-320 and 329-330 only have two rows of seating plus a wheelchair accessible row. This is perfect for families who are concerned about their children seeing over patrons in front of them. Plus, section 306 nearby has a family restroom.
The other sections have up to 18 rows of seating. Rows 10 and higher in 305, 312, 321 and 328 will have you wishing you stayed home and watched on TV or at least brought the binoculars.
400 Level Baseline (Basketball) Seating
The 400 Level corner seats are near all the restrooms, while the baseline seats are near all the concessions and bars. If you fill up at the Red Frog Rum Bar near 414 and 415, be warned that the nearest men's restroom is more than a couple sections away.
Concessions are standard stadium fare with Uptown Dawgs served at 407 and 417. If the price is right, stick to the first three rows, which will have a noticeably better view than Rows 12+.
400 Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
Corner seats in the 400 level have fewer rows of seating than baseline seats and the tunnel entrance is halfway up. That means no matter which row you're in, the walk up and down the stairs will be kind.
Restrooms are aplenty in the corner sections, but you'll have to walk to the baseline seating to get concessions. This means Sections 401, 410, 411 and 420 might have a farther walk to the nearest food stands.
