Shaded & Covered Seating

The overhang of the second deck provides ample cover for a number of seats along the east sideline. This photo from Section 103 shows the upper rows of section 101 and others under cover.
Shown here are the 200 level club seats - about half of which are covered by the 300 level.
While covered seating is abundant on the lower east sideline, only the highest rows of the west sideline sections are under the overhang. Meanwhile, the entire Media Deck above the 100 level is completely covered.
Looking down at the Media Deck on the west side of Soldier Field. These are widely considered some of the best seats for a Bears game due to their views of the field and being completely under cover.
Some endzone sections at Soldier Field will be shaded. This photo shows the Colonnade seats in the South endzone where sections like 222-224 are completely shaded.
The Media Deck is a seating area on the west side of Soldier Field in sections 228-246. These are among the best sections for being protected from the elements as the 300 level hangs over the seats.

Less than 10% of seats at Soldier Field 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.
