Plaza Level Section 59 has a total of 25 numbered rows of seats, and at Row 18 you will be the 7th row from the back of the section. The best overhead coverage is found in Rows 20 and higher, however there will still be sun reaching the seats in the late afternoon as the sun begins to set behind the west side of the stadium.
For the best seats in the shade, we recommend sitting in the upper rows of the Plaza Level sections at the south west corner of Qualcomm Stadium (26P to 32P).
