Best Seats For a Concert at MetLife Stadium
The most common seating layout at MetLife Stadium for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 101, Section 103 and Section 104. For many concerts there are also slight variations to the layout, which may include General Admission seats, fan pits and B-stages.
On the Field: Sections Field 1, Field 10, Field 11 and Field 12 are Field Seats, which offer some of the closest views of the performers. For many concerts, field sections are added or removed. These performer-specific adjustments may alter the field layout and the views from each field 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 111A, Section 111C and Section 112. The view is not head-on like on the field, but many of the seats are closer to the stage, provide better elevation and are actual stadium seats.
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 103, Section 104 and Section 106. 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 field seats only in the first few rows: The most common complaint amongst field 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 134 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 313 and 339.
Only about 15% of all seats at MetLife Stadium offer some type of shade or cover. Below is a sample of seats that are at least partially covered or shaded at different times of the day.

Avoid Row(s) 15-18 in Section(s) 201, 226, 202B, 225B, 227B, 228B and 250B for Football -
Support beams near the aisles will limit the view from certain seats in rows 15 and higher in Sections 201, 202B, 225B-228B and 250B. To reduce the risk of an obstructed view in Rows 15-18, avoid the low and high numbered seats and opt for seats near the middle of the row (seats 10-20 will eliminate the view obstruction).
Lower Level Corner seating offers a unique perspective of the action for fans that enjoy both the north-south and east-west movement of the game. On the lowest tier, these seats are some of the closest options to the endzones, and have excellent positioning to view one of MetLife stadiums four large video boards which are all located below the 300 level and in each corner of the stadium.
On the official MetLife seating chart, these sections are also referred to as the Lower Touchdown Corner and Lower Endzone corner seating areas. Sections in this location are among some of the largest in the stadium with sections nearer to midfield containing 37 rows of seating and sections nearer to the back of the endzone containing as many as 45 rows of seating. Choose seats in a higher rows for the best views of the entire field and to be closer to the lower level concourse.
Lower Level Endzone (Football) Seating
Behind each goal line on the lowest tier of MetLife Stadium are a collection of 10 sections. On the seating chart these sections are also known as the Lower Endzone, and are among the largest of any sections in the stadium. With up to 48 numbered rows of seating, row selection is the key to getting the most bang for your buck.
In the lower rows, you'll likely pay more for the opportunity to be just mere feet away from the endzone and all the hard-hitting action. But you'll also have to climb as many as 30 stairs to get back to the lower concourse tunnel.
Meanwhile, the last rows here will be far from the field, but they'll also have advantages not found in the lowest rows. First, sitting near row 30 will have you close to the section entrance, allowing you to get back from restroom and refreshment breaks in mere minutes. Second, the last few rows in these sections are covered by the 200 level overhang, protecting you from rain and snow. Finally, the elevation in the higher rows makes it easier to see the other end of the field and provides more comfortable views of the videoboards.
Lower Level Sidleine (Football) Seating
Adjacent to the super-premium Coaches Club on the east side, and spanning all along the sideline on the west side of the field are Lower Level Sideline sections. With premium seating taking up a majority of the best seats on the east side of MetLife Stadium, midfield sections 137-140 on the west sideline are the best lower level seats without a club price-tag.
Section 139 is one of the most sought after non-premium seating sections for Giants games due to its location on the 50 yard line. However, for Jets games Section 139 is the location of the MetLife 50 Club, one of the best premium seating areas in the stadium.
Sections in this location have between 31 and 35 numbered rows of seats with fewer rows in the sections nearest to midfield. The best views are found near the top of the sections in Rows 24-31. The sitelines from these sections are outstanding, and you'll be just a few short steps away from restrooms and concessions.
Mezzanine Endzone (Football) Seating
The mezzanine sits on the second tier of MetLife Stadium. In the endzone, ticketholders will appreciate the perspective from in front and behind the line of scrimmage, with a good elevation which allows fans to see all areas of the field.
Mezzanine Endzone A sections are located in the lower portion of this seating area (with 12 to 15 numbered rows of seating), while Mezzanine Endzone B sections are located just above and slightly further back from the field (slightly larger with 15 to 18 rows of seating). Mezzanine B sections are some of the best non-premium seating options for fans looking for protection from the weather as they are almost entirely covered by the upper level seating deck.
For Jets games only, Section 224B in the South endzone is a Family section at MetLife Stadium, and alcohol is not permitted.
Upper Level Corner (Football) Seating
The Upper Level Corner seats are home to some of the furthest views in MetLife Stadium, but also some of the most affordable tickets. The steep seating on the highest tier and exposure to the elements keeps these seats in lower demand than other options in the stadium.
These sections are separated into a lower and upper portion by the entry tunnel at row 5, causing the seats in rows 1-4 to feel smaller and more intimate than the upper rows 5-26.
Fans looking for an easy in and out from their seats are advised to avoid sections 307, 320, 332, and 345 due to their large size with 26 rows of seating and as many as 42 seats per row.
Upper Level Endzone (Football) Seating
On the highest seating deck of MetLife stadium, the Upper Level Endzone sections will have some of the furthest views as the ball moves to the far end of the field.
Smaller than the neighboring Upper Level Corner, sections in the endzone have just 22 numbered rows of seating (with row 5 being at the front and row 26 at the very back), creating a smaller more comfortable feel than in the corner.
While the views may be far, ticketholders will appreciate having the two video boards in the corners of the opposite side of the field to help stay in touch with all details on the field. There are no roofs or overhangs to shield from the weather, so fans should be prepared to dress accordingly.
Upper Level Sideline (Football) Seating
Between the goal lines on the highest tier of the stadium, the Upper Level Sideline is the best place to find cheap tickets near midfield.
Designated as Prime sections on the seating chart, sections 313-314 on the east side and sections 338-339 on the west side are great options due to their positioning directly on the 50 yard line.
Entry tunnels are located at row 5 with a walkway that separates the lower seats (rows 1-4) from the higher (rows 5-26). Seating here is incredibly steep, and with no overhanging structure above, fans will be at the mercy of the weather.
100 Level Side (Concert) Seating
Lower level sections along the sideline are some of the most popular tickets for a concert at MetLife Stadium. These sections offer fans close proximity to the stage and some elevation to help see over those seated in front of you (unlike on the floor/field).
When considering tickets in these sections, there are a few items to consider. First, the side sections closest to the stage (labeled 110, 111A, 111C, 140 and 142) were built for football and do not provide a good angle to the stage. The tickets either provide a side view (where you can't see all parts of the stage) or face midfield instead of the stage. These sections can yield very good deals at such a close proximity, but you should temper expectations when it comes to getting an outstanding view. Note, if your performance includes a catwalk or B-stage that extends out on the field, these seats will have the best views of that part of the performance.
Another item to consider is the side of the field you will be sitting on. Sections 110-117 are on the east side of the stadium and are the smallest sections on the lower level. Some of these sections contain as few as 15 seats per row, which makes it easier to get in-and-out when compared to the 30-seat rows in sections 134-142. Fans will also find padded seating in sections 111C-115C, making for a more comfortable outing.
Of course, when it comes to comfort, one last consideration is the sun. Sections 110-117 are highly susceptible to the sun in the late afternoon. If your concert will have you sitting in your seat between 4 and 6pm, you may want a seat in one of the sections 134-142 where the sun will be behind you.
200 Level Side (Concert) Seating
Side sections on the 200 level of MetLife Stadium offer fans a chance at an elevated seating location without being too high up. Highly regarded for their views during Jets and Giants games, these seats also offer some very good sitelines for a concert.
For the best sitelines, we recommend sections 213, 215, 237 and 239. These seats offer a comfortable angle to all areas of the stage without being pushed back too far.
Meanwhile, sections 211 and 241 are usually listed as having a side view. While your view of the stage won't necessarily be obstructed, you may have a difficult time seeing the rear part of the stage (typically where drummers and dancers perform).
For the most part, tickets on either side of the field are created equal - except as it relates to the sun. Sections 211-217 will be in the sun until at least early evening. If seated in this area, consider bringing a hat and sunglasses even if your concert doesn't begin until 7pm.
300 Level Side (Concert) Seating
When choosing seats in any of the 300 level sections, we recommend aiming for the lowest row possible. While views from the lower rows rival the more expensive seats on the 200 level, the views in the upper rows are often criticized for being too steep and for forcing you to look straight down to see the performance. For a football game, it's easy to keep track of the action when 22 guys are sprinting towards the ball. But at a concert when you want to focus on just one or two people, you'll want to be in the lowest row possible.
If hot weather is in the forecast, be sure to purchase tickets on the west side of the stadium where the sun will be setting behind you. On a hot night, sections 336-340 are often 15-20 degrees cooler than sections 312-316. Ticket prices don't often reflect the significant difference between these two sides, so you shouldn't have to pay a premium for comfort.
While we recommend being in the lowest row possible, rows 20 and above in these sections are mostly covered. If rain is in the forecast for your event, consider sacrificing your view in favor of a dry outing.
With sideline access seats what time for a 1pm game should you arrive at the stadium?
Gates open two hours prior to kickoff for all fans at MetLife Stadium. We recommend getting to the stadium around 10:30 for a 1pm game. This will allow ample time for parking and walking to the gates so that you are one of the first fans to enter the stadium. Enjoy!
How steep the seating is on the upper levels of Metlife Stadium?
e would recommend avoiding seats in the 300 level if you have concerns about height and may struggle with walking steeper aisles which are higher up in the stadium. The seating progression is much shallower and more easily manageable in the 100 and 200 sections, so we strongly encourage you to look for options there instead.
However if your budget does not allow for seats on the 2 lower levels, you should look for seats near Row 8 throughout the 300 level. These seats will have some of the least amount of stairs to climb when going to and from the seats and the concourse.
How old must a baby be to enter the stadium for free for a game at MetLife Stadium?
For the 2016 season, all children 34" and shorter do not need a ticket for a Jets game, provided they sit with an accompanying adult. For Giants home games, all guests require a ticket.
Where is the Flight Deck located at MetLife Stadium?
These "Flight" tickets are going to be located in the Flight Deck section. The Flight Deck section is located on the second level right at the top of the escalator. The closest section to the Flight Deck is 232C. The best gate to enter to get to the Flight Deck would be at the Verizon Gate.
How many rows in each section at MetLife 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 stage from your seats, lower number seats are on your right.
