Only about 15% of all seats at Sanford 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.

Behind the endzones on the lowest level of seating is the Lower Level Endzone seating location. This location is very close to the action behind the endzones, but it is far away from the other side of the field. Since it is far away and the uprights provide a slight obstruction to the view, the other side of the field is difficult to see. The lack of elevation also contributes to the difficulty in seeing the opposite side.
The sections behind the west endzone, sections 139-143, are designated student sections, so this area is one of the loudest in the stadium. Students tend to stand during a majority of the game, so it may be difficult to see the action when sitting in or around these sections.
Lower Level Sideline Seating
Lower level sideline seats are home to some of the best seats in the stadium with their close proximity to the field and ability to see all the action. The sections clustered around the 50 yard line are particularly good because of their prime location in an ideal spot.
While the most expensive tickets might be closest to the field, the best views will be found in rows 20-40. These seats provide the best elevation for seeing the entire field comfortably.
Sections 109, 110, and 111 on the NE side are designated student sections. These areas are likely to be some of the loudest and rowdiest in the whole stadium.
The biggest complaint about lower level seating (besides for all bench seating) is lack of access to the concourse. With 60 rows in each section, you may be a dozen feet from the field but more than five-dozen steps away from grabbing that ice cold drink or using the restrooms.
300 Level Corner Seating
Sections in the corner of the 300 level are located on both sides of the field. Among these sections, Sections 322-326 provide the best overall experience. They do not get the sun directly and have a decent angle towards the lone videoboard.
If you're looking to competely avoid the sun, choose sections 336 and 337 on the Southwest side. The sun will set behind these sections instead of directly in your face. The one downside is that you won't be able to see the videoboard without turning your head.
Each of these corner sections contains 25 rows of seating.
300 Level Endzone Seating
Even though they're closer to the field than 600 level seating, the worst seats at Sanford Stadium are probably in the endzone of the 300 Level.
None of the seats in the 300 level of the East endzone are covered and most of them are directly in the sun.
On the plus side, these seats do have the best head-on view of the videoboard above the West endzone. It will come in handy when the sun blocked your view of the play or you were too far away to see what was going on.
300 Level Sideline Seating
On the second main bowl of seating at Sanford Stadium is the 300 Level. The sideline seats in this location have a good position in the stadium with an ideal elevation and setting close to midfield.
The sections concentrated around the 50 yard line are particularly good because of their ability to see the entire field. Even though these seats seem much farther away from the field than the 100 level, they provide some of the most comfortable views of the whole field. To be behind the UGA sideline and to have the sun behind you, choose sections 327-335.
The entire 300 level contains 25 rows of numbered seating.
Lower Level Corner Seating
Some of the best values at Sanford Stadium are located in the corner of the lower level. In particular, the highest rows in Sections 112-116 offer a fantastic experience. These top rows are shaded from the sun, have the same view as the club level, are close to the lower concourse and cost a fraction of the price of club seats. There are better views close to midfield, but they'll usually cost twice as much.
Unfortunately, sections 112 through 114 are usually reserved for students. If you're able to secure tickets in or around this area, beware that it may be a little more rowdy than the rest of the stadium.
The decision to disclose the seat number for a ticket is at the discretion of the individual seller. Some sellers do provide a seat number or range, while others might not provide this information due to privacy concerns.
At Sanford Stadium, seat 1 will always be on the right side of the section as you face the field of play.
Where is the family section at Sanford Stadium?
Sanford Stadium does not have a designated family seating section, however if you are looking to bring your family to the November 9th game, we would recommend avoiding the student sections as these will be rowdier and most fans will have to stand the entire game when sitting here (Student sections: 109-114, 138-143, 307-317).
Is beer available in the Club Lounge at Sanford Stadium?
There is no alcohol sold at Sanford Stadium, so while you will have access to the upscale Club Level with tickets in Section 204, you unfortunately will not be able to purchase a beer.
What seats are for visiting students at Sanford Stadium?
Sections 102-104 on the lower level, and Sections 601-611 on the upper level are the designated seating areas for visiting team fans at Sanford Stadium. If considering seats in one of the lower level sections, choose a higher row. This will give you a better panoramic view of the field and you'll be closer to the lower concourse. In the 600 level, sit as low as possible for the best access and better views.
All of these seats are on the visitor side of the field, which also happens to be the sunny side. If it's a sunny and/or hot day, be sure to wear sunglasses a hat and sunscreen.
