Best Seats For a Concert at Scotiabank Arena
The most common seating layout at Scotiabank Arena for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 111, Section 112 and Section 113. 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 A, Floor D, Floor E and Floor AA 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 108, Section 109 and Section 118. 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.
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 111, Section 112, Section 113 and Section 114. 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 107 and 120 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 310 and 320.
The Maple Leafs shoot twice towards the net in front of Sections 109 and 110. Along with nearby sections, these seats will give you the best views of the Maple Leafs as they attack in the first and third periods.
To search tickets in these seating areas, select an event and apply the corresponding filter.
Corner sections are among the cheapest lower level seats for a typical end stage concert at Scotiabank Arena due to their distance from the stage.
Though they are far away from the stage, the view from sections 105 and 122 looks comfortably at the stage. Avoid Row 30 in Sections 105 and 122 as some of the seats in these rows are obstructed by the adjacent suites.
Lower Level End (Concert) Seating
Sections 102 and 103 are head-on to the stage in the lower level, making them comfortable options for fans who do not want to twist their body to see the stage. Though they are among the most comfortable seats in the lower level, the last few rows are as far away from the stage as you can get in the lower level.
The mix booth is located directly in front of these sections and behind the Center Floor section. If you want to avoid a long walk up or down the stairs, sit close to Row 21 -- where the concourse tunnel is located.
Lower Level Side (Concert) Seating
With excellent proximity, good viewing height, and clear lines of sight to the center of the stage, lower side sections 109 and 118 offer some of the best non-floor seating options during a traditional end stage performance at Air Canada Centre. In section 109 the higher numbered seats are the way to go if you want to be closer to the stage, while in section 118 you will be closer when sitting in the lower numbered seats.
Sections 108 and 119 are also very good options for an end stage configuration, but are the very best when the performance features a main stage setup in the middle of the floor. If you don't mind a side angle view, sections 110 and 117 can get you close to the end stage but you will want to avoid the higher numbered seats in section 110 and the lower numbered seats in section 117 as these will have the most difficult views.
Most lower level side sections have 28 numbered rows of seats in a traditional layout, with concourse entry tunnels located just above row 19. For a good viewing height and easy access to and from the seats, consider seats in rows 15-19.
Upper Level Corner (Concert) Seating
Corner seats in the upper level are among the cheapest options for seeing a concert at ACC. Each section has up to 19 numbered rows of seating, with Row 1 being the actual first row.
Sit in rows 7 or higher in Sections 301 and 305 for fewer than 8 seats in each row. This will make getting in and out of your seats easier than sitting in a row with 20 seats.
Upper Level End (Concert) Seating
The smallest sections in Air Canada Centre are located head-on to the stage in the upper level. Sections 302 through 304 only have 6 rows of seating each. No matter which row you choose, you'll be just a short walk away from the concession options behind sections 302 and 303.
Sections 302 and 304 can have up to 24 seats in each row, while Section 303 has up to 18 seats in each row.
Upper Level Side (Concert) Seating
You won't find a better upper level view for a traditional end stage performance than those found in sections 310 and 320. Close to the stage without having an extreme side angle view, and at a fraction of the price of a lower level ticket, these seats are a good find for those on a tighter budget for an end stage layout.
Seats in sections 311 and 319 might get you a little bit closer to your favorite performer on an end stage, but be aware that most views here look straight away at the side of the stage, and have limited view of the front of the performance. Whenever possible, avoid being too far behind the front of the stage by choosing the lowest numbered seats in section 311, or the highest numbered seats in section 319.
Most upper level side sections have 19 numbered rows of seating, and as the entry tunnels are located just above row 3, you will want to find yourself in rows 1-6 for the best combination of view and easy access.
100 Level Baseline (Basketball) Seating
The most notable aspect of the lower level baseline options is how large these sections are. With lettered rows B through H at the front, and numbered rows 1 through 28 just above, each section has a total of 35 seating rows making it important to be aware of the entry tunnel locations.
Tickets in the lettered rows will keep fans closer to the court, however with the entry tunnel being just above Row 20, these seats will have long walks to get between the seats and the concourse. This could mean more time taking trips to the restrooms or to grab concessions, and less time in the seats watching the game.
When possible, you'll want to avoid the lower numbered seats in Sections 103 and 114 as well as the higher numbered seats in Sections 102 and 113. These seats would have you closer to the middle of the baskets where the overall views are more limited due to the basket support structure. The seating rows near the front can be shallow (poor elevation over the fans in front), so shorter fans will prefer the higher rows where the elevation improves as you get closer to the back.
100 Level Center (Basketball) Seating
Traditional sideline views and lower level location make the Lower Level Center sections some of the most sought after for watching a basketball game at Scotiabank Arena. Unlike the other areas on the lower tier, these centrally located sections have separate entry tunnels for the lower seating rows (found at Row 3) in addition to the primary entry tunnels at Row 20. Fans closer to the court will therefore have much easier trips to and from the seats compared to the options in the corners or behind the baskets.
Sections 108 and 109 put you right at midcourt for the best views of both ends of the floor, however some Raptors fans might prefer the lower rows of Section 118 which is directly behind the team bench.
Our favorite combination of view, comfort, and value is found in Rows 15-20 of Sections 107-109. Being further from the floor not only helps keep ticket prices more reasonable, but also provides an excellent viewing height for watching the game and incredibly easy access to and from the concourse. From these seats you'll also have a head on view of the team benches, as opposed to the opposite side of the court where you can only see the backs of the team as they sit on the bench.
100 Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
With large lower level sections, seats in the corners of Scotiabank Arena will have a different feel depending on which row you find yourself seated in. Most sections extend all the way towards the floor, although stadium tunnels create further set back seating in Sections 101, 105, 111, and 116.
Sections 115 and 117 are great options for Raptors fans as it will keep you close to the team bench, as well as the entry tunnel where the Raptors enter and exit the court (Rows 8 and lower will ensure you aren't above the tunnel).
Entry tunnels between the sections and concourse are located closer to the top of the sections (near Row 20), which can leave a long walk to the seats for fans sitting closer to the floor. Seats above the tunnel feel far for a lower level ticket, so we recommend searching in Rows 10-20 for the best combination of seating height, view, and access to the concourse.
300 Level Baseline (Basketball) Seating
Sitting behind the baskets on the upper tier provides an aerial view with a non-traditional perspective for watching a game, but offer a unique seating option due to the size of the sections.
Sections on the west baseline have no more than 4 rows, while the options at the east end of the arena are slightly larger with 6 rows in each. Smaller seating areas provide a more intimate feel with easy access to and from the seats, and with comfortable straight away views that require no head turning, these seats can be a good value for the right fan.
Raptors fans should consider Section 316 the top choice in this location as you'll have no more than 4 rows of seating to traverse when moving to and from the seats, and have good views of the Raptors team bench.
300 Level Center (Basketball) Seating
Also commonly known as the Balcony sections, these seats provide some of the best views from the upper seating tier at Scotiabank Arena. You won't be able to avoid the feeling of being high up in the arena, however the sideline positioning helps keep both baskets comfortably within sight allowing you to easily follow the action at either end of the court.
Seating begins with Row 1 at the front, and ends with Row 19 at the very back. Entry tunnels are located just above Row 3, and with the walkway aisles being steep we recommend searching for tickets in Rows 8 and lower to secure the best views and easiest access.
Section 320 is the closest option to the Raptors team bench, but from this height we prefer sitting at the opposite sideline (Sections 308-310) where you can watch the players faces on the team benches.
300 Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
Corner seating on the upper tier is going to be one of the best places to find a cheap basketball ticket at Scotiabank Arena. With the exception of Sections 307, 311, 319, and 323, the back half of the sections are also commonly known as the Fan Zone areas, which traditionally have the most affordable price tags of any seats in the arena.
While the price may be right, we don't recommend sitting in the upper portions of Sections 301, 305, 313, or 317 as the walls enclosing the adjacent baseline suites can create a tunnel vision feel down to the court.
Sections here have 19 numbered rows of seating, with entry tunnels located closer to the front (just above Row 3). The section aisles are steep, so we recommend staying near the tunnel in Rows 1-8 if you have more limited mobility.
Good options for Raptors fans can be found in Sections 318 or 319 where you'll be closer to the tench bench and tunnel where the players enter and exit. Sections 601A and 613A at the east end of the arena are dedicated areas for handicap accessible seating.
If you are left searching for seats in sections 313 or 317 (at the west end of Scotiabank Arena) be sure to avoid tickets with a row ending in X (Rows 7X through 18X). These seats have obstructed views of the floor which is why they are given the unique X suffix at the end of the row designation.
100 Level Center (Hockey) Seating
Sections 107-109 and 118-120 are often considered the best seats for a Maple Leafs game. These sections offer a center ice view in the lowest seating tier and typically command top dollars.
Some of the most popular seats in these sections include those behind the player benches in Sections 118-120 and behind the penalty boxes in 108. Fans in row 3 in these sections will have up-close interactions with the players as they come on and off the ice and enter/exit the penalty box.
But you don't have to be seated near the box or benches - or even near the glass - to have great seats in these sections. In fact, many fans consider rows 15-25 the ideal height for watching hockey. Seats in these rows can see over the glass easily and you can see each end of the ice without continuously turning your head.
100 Level Corner (Hockey) Seating
While seats near center ice attract the most attention and the highest ticket price, corner seats are typically found to contain the best deals among lower level seats.
If you're considering a low row in a corner section, it's tough to beat Row 1 at Scotiabank Arena. These rows are up against the glass and you'll be just a few inches away from the most intense board battles.
In higher rows you'll find great sightlines towards center ice which allow you to see both ends of the ice comfortably. In these higher rows, we recommend choosing seats close to row 16 where you'll be able to see over the glass and be just a few steps away from the concourse tunnel.
100 Level End (Hockey) Seating
Sections 102-103 and 113-114 are directly behind the nets at the Scotiabank Arena. The first row in each of these sections is Row 5 and sitting in that row will give you the experience of being a goal judge as you'll be one of the first ones to know if a goal is scored. To take this experience to another level, sit on the west side in 113 or 114 to be on the side where the Leafs shoot twice.
If tickets in the first few rows are too expensive or if you want a better overall view, aim for seats near Row 20. They're closer to the ice than you think and they're usually available at a fraction of the price of the lowest rows. Additionally, you'll have the advantage of being close to the section tunnel and of being able to see over the glass and its partitions.
300 Level Behind the Net (Hockey) Seating
Some of the best ticket values are usually found in the upper level sections behind the net. With 4-6 rows in each of these sections, getting in and out is usually a breeze. And with a rare overhang (some of these seats extend over the 100s sections), the front row in some of these sections are actually closer to the ice than lower level seats below. Add in close proximity to some of the stadium's best amenities, and these seats are a great way to save money on tickets and still wind up with a great experience.
300 Level Center (Hockey) Seating
Some of the best upper level seating in the National Hockey League is located in sections 308-310 and 320-322 for a Leafs game. With just a single lower bowl of seating a small ring of suites, the front rows of the 300 level are incredibly close to the ice surface.
While the best seats in these sections are undeniably at the front, fans will find that the experience suffers rather quickly as you move into double-digit rows (10 and above). Fans in the top rows have the longest walks up and down the stairs and the Gondola Boxes above sections 320-322 create a claustrophobic experience for some.
The high rows shouldn't avoided completely, but fans with mobility issues or fans who simply don't want to deal with a steep set of stairs should instead aim for lower rows in corner sections where prices are usually comparable.
300 Level Corner (Hockey) Seating
The uppper level corner sections at a Leafs game are among the most polarizing in the arena. With nearly 20 rows in each section, row placement is the key to getting the most bang for your buck.
Choosing seats near row 3 or 4 will have you just a few steps away from the section tunnel. And with some rows containing up to 24 seats, choosing seats near the aisle will also help you reach concessions and amenities more quickly.
The cheapest Leafs tickets are usually found in the top rows of these sections. Many of these seats have a face value less than half of the cheapest lower level seats. Accessible seating can be found in Sections 601A and 613A, which are accessed from behind instead of by the stairs that run through 300 level sections.
If you find yourself searching in sections 313 or 317 (at the west end of Scotiabank Arena) be sure to avoid tickets with a row ending in X (Rows 7X through 18X). These seats have obstructed views which is why they are given the unique X suffix at the end of the row designation.
Where are the green section seats at Air Canada Centre?
The green seating areas at the Air Canada Centre for Maple Leafs games are located in the first 11 rows (rows 1-11) of sections 306-312 and 318-324. There are also a few green seats located in the seats furthest from the nets in the first 11 rows of sections 301, 305, 313, and 317.
Where is the best place to sit for a concert at Air Canada Centre?
If you do not mind standing the whole time and do not have trouble seeing over taller fans, the Floor will have the better atmosphere and some of the best views of the stage. Otherwise, if you are on the shorter side or want to enjoy the show instead of immersing yourself into it, the front rows of Sections 109 and 118 are phenomenal seats for seeing the stage and being close.
How many rows in each section at Scotiabank Arena?
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 court from your seats, lower number seats are on your right.
