Shaded & Covered Seating

The East side of Memorial Stadium has a slew of obstructed seating due to columns supporting the overhang. Columns are located at Row 53 and the likelihood of having an obstructed view increases as you move into a higher row.
A generous overhang on the east side of the stadium keeps fans in rows 42 and higher safely under cover (notice the threatening weather in the background).

Only about 15% of all seats at Memorial 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. To search for tickets or to find out if your seats are protected from the sun or rain, follow the link for the seat finder.

Obstructed Seating

The East side of Memorial Stadium has a slew of obstructed seating due to columns supporting the overhang. Columns are located at Row 53 and the likelihood of having an obstructed view increases as you move into a higher row.
With obstructed seating (both of the field and the videoboard), television monitors have been installed near the top of the east main level seats.
