Best Seats For a Concert at Nationals Park
The most common seating layout at Nationals Park for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 100, Section 101 and Section 102. 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 2, Field 3 and Field 4 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 108, Section 110 and Section 136. 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 100, Section 101, Section 102 and Section 103. 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 113 and 132 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 401 and 402.
Field Level Down the Line seating is a good option for fans that prefer being on the lowest tier and don’t mind the further views of watching from beyond the infield.
The sections will begin to angle the seating more towards the infield as you get closer to the foul poles, making it easier to catch all the action and minimize turning your head.
These sections are also very good for catching foul balls, and fans looking to be in the shade sooner should look at the third base side first.
In the sections closer to the infield, the lower half of seating is known as Baseline Box, while the upper have of seating is known as the Baseline Reserved. Sections nearest to the foul pole in this location are also referred to as the Left and Right Field Corner.
Outfield Reserve (Baseball) Seating
The best seats for a baseball game depend on your priorities. If you want an opportunity to catch a home run ball, outfield reserve seats are where you should be. Located just beyond the outfield walls and in prime home run ball territory. These seats are also the home of the Center Field Lounge and Center Field Reserved seating areas (located in section 100) which provide fans with a unique viewing experience and close proximity to the Red Porch Restaurant.
Sections 101 and 102 out in left field are located directly behind the visitors bullpen, while sections 138 and 139 are directly next to the Nationals bullpen in right field.
Seats in left and center field will see the sun throughout most of the day, but fans looking for a bit more relief will want to be in the higher rows of right field sections 138-142 where the seating deck above provides good overhead coverage as well as shade during the early portions of a mid day game.
Right Field Terrace (Baseball) Seating
The Right Field Terrace is a separate deck that is located above the Mezzanine and Club seats along the right field side.
This level is technically lower to ground level than the Gallery Deck which starts at first base and runs through to the left field foul pole, but as it is separate from the rest of the stadium it does not give you easy access to a large concourse if you want to just walk around the stadium and check it all out.
The seats are separated into the Lower Right Field Terrace in the first ten rows (Rows A-J) and Upper Right Field Terrace in the remaining 14 rows. Overhead coverage is sparse in the Terrace seating area, but there is some spots underneath the roof above which can be found in the highest seating rows.
With the upper deck (also known as the Gallery and Upper Gallery) providing more of a birds eye perspective for a ballgame at Nationals Park, we recommend sticking to the 100 and 200 levels when searching for good all around views of the field during a Nats game.
Some of the best options are found in the middle rows of the lower 100 level sections closest to the dugouts. Sit too low and it can be difficult to pick up all the details, but if you go too high you miss out on the excitement of being close to the field. Rows N-Z and AA-GG give a perfect blend of ideal viewing height and close proximity to the diamond. Sections 129-132 keep you closer to the Nats dugout on the first base side, but from here you are likely to see more sun during a day game. On the third base side, sections 113-116 are closer to the visitor dugout and will get the sun at their back sooner. Sit closer to the outside edge of the infield, especially sections 113-114 and 131-132, to avoid the protective netting.
Many fans love the views from behind home plate at a baseball game, and you can find excellent ones in the front rows of sections 120-121 and 124-125 at Nationals Park. These seats have impressive proximity to home plate and the on deck circles, and you'll be able to pick up the break on the pitches with ease. Rows A-H here are also a part of the PNC Diamond Club, which allows you to order food and beverage right from your seats rather than having to miss the action on the field during a trip to the concourse. We recommend avoiding these rows in sections 122 and 123 as there is a railing on the home plate side of the section which creates an awful viewing obstruction.
The second tier of seating at Nationals Park has a great perspective thanks to the perfect viewing height just above the 100 level sections, and seats closer to the infield don't leave you feeling far at all. Sections 206-211 are great choices when sitting in rows C and higher as you will be clear of the safety railing at the front of the sections. Seats here also put the sun at your back sooner, while fans on the first base side have the sun in their eyes for a longer chunk of the game. These club seats don't come with in-seat wait service, but the smaller seating sections and private concourse help keep lines to a minimum for quicker trips away from the game.
Most of the recommendations above will come with a higher price tag due to the desirable positioning of the seats, but if you're looking for a cheaper option, consider seats in rows C-H of sections 202 and 203. You'll be at that great second tier seating height for a Nats game, and these seats also have a good angle into the infield. Similar options down the right field line wrap closer to the foul pole creating extremely difficult views of the right field corner, but as these left field options swing out wider in the stadium, you maintain a surprisingly good view to almost all areas of the field. From this position you also get the sun at your back sooner, rather than having to fight through the glaring shine to follow the game.

I recommend any section in the infield gallery that is around the infield. if you get too far out it is not as nice. It is cool hanging over the infield.

Venue & Seating Questions
Is Row AA closer to the field than Row A at Nationals Park?
In all seating sections at Nationals Park, the single lettered rows (i.e. row A) are closer to the field than the double lettered rows (i.e. row AA).
Are the Club Seats at Nationals Park enclosed in a room with glass?
There are six different club seating areas at Nationals Park, although none of them will be located within an enclosed room with viewing glass. Many of these seats do come with access to a climate controlled lounge however. Suites are the best place to find enclosed seating, but can be difficult to find for single game purchases.
What are the best seats for the value at the ballpark?
Some of the best seats are located just behind homeplate, but you can expect to pay closer to $100 for these seats. If you can find them for under $50 for each ticket, we think these are a great deal for the money.
But since deals behind home plate are not easy to find, we recommend sitting in the club level (2nd tier of the stadium) as you can usually find tickets for under $50 and will also have some of the best shade in the park. These club seats also come with access to the the club lounge, and are located between first and third base, giving you an excellent viewing angle from just above the lower field level.

Club 3 seats are located in a premium suite section located just above section 120 behind home plate. These seats are normally intended for corporate and group outings, and feature all-inclusive ballpark fare menu, soda and water, cash bar, and private restroom.
