Best Seats For a Concert at Scotiabank Saddledome
The most common seating layout at Scotiabank Saddledome for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 102, 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 Floor: Floor is 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 120. 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 102, Section 103, Section 104 and Section 105. 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 110 and 119 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 Press Level 3 and Press Level 16.
The Flames shoot twice towards the net in front of Sections 111 and 112. Along with nearby sections, these seats will give you the best views of the Flames as they attack in the first and third periods.

Experience the game from a similar view as a goalie when sitting behind the nets on the lower seating tier. These sections allow fans to further appreciate the side to side movement of the game, as opposed to the end to end (goal to goal) perspective most typical shown on television broadcasts.
Flames fans will want to opt for seats near the north goal (Sections 113-116) where the home team shoots during the 1st and 3rd periods, and the sections are smaller (13 rows on the north end, up to 24 rows on the south end).
Lower Level Center (Hockey) Seating
Sitting at center ice on the lower level offers fans the best and most highly sought after views for a Flames Hockey game. Close proximity to the ice as well as player benches and penalty boxes creates an exciting atmosphere, but will also cause ticket prices to be on a higher tier.
Lower level sections are among the smallest at the Saddledome, featuring just 13 numbered rows of seating in each lower level center section.
Lower Level Corner (Hockey) Seating
Corner seating is one of the best places to find cheaper lower level tickets for a Flames game. Sections at the north corners (111-112 and 117-118) feature just 13 numbered rows of seating, while corner sections near the south goal (101-102, 106-107, 122) have as many as 24 numbered rows.
Top options in this seating location are Sections 117 and 118, where fans will be closer to the net where the Flames shoot twice.
Middle Behind the Net (Hockey) Seating
A great elevated perspective from behind the goals makes these seats a great option for the avid hockey fan. See the game from the perspective of a goalie and gain a new appreciation for the passing plays as you follow the puck between the side boards. The Flames shoot twice at the north end, making Sections 218-220 the better options for home team supporters.
Sections in this location have up to 26 numbered rows of seating with tunnels to the concourse located at Row 5.
Middle Level Center (Hockey) Seating
With a smaller lower level and just a single ring of suites tucked underneath, the middle level of the Saddledome sits impressively close to the ice for a non-lower level seating area. Sections near center ice will have excellent views of both nets, staying involved in the game no matter where the puck may be.
Sections in the Middle Level Center have up to 24 numbered rows of seating, with entry tunnels located at Row 5. Great seats can be found in Rows 10 and lower, while the higher rows will require a bit of a walk to get to and from the concourse.
Middle Level Corner (Hockey) Seating
From the corners of the middle seating tier, fans have a very good viewing height to the ice which allows you to follow the puck at almost any time. The smaller configuration of the lower level and minimal suite seating below helps keep these seats close to all the action, while the further distance from center ice typically allows for lower ticket prices.
Corner sections have up to 26 numbered rows of seating with entry tunnels located at Row 5.
Flames supporters will want to be at the north corners (Sections 214-217 and 221-224) where you will be closer to the net where the home team shoots twice.

Where are Gold and Silver seats at a Calgary Flames game?
The first two rows of the 200 level at the Saddledome are given a special designation. The first row of seats is known as Gold seats and the second row is known as Silver seats. Furthermore, the first two rows in sections 211-213 and 225-227 are known as Gold Centre and Silver Centre seats.
