Arrowhead Stadium Upper Level Sideline
Sitting Here for a Football Game
The unique shape of Arrowhead Stadium results is characterized by one of the most interesting upper decks in the NFL. Nowhere is this more apparent than in sideline sections where the high sides of the stadium result in enormous sections with a lot of seating choices.
Undoubtedly, the best sitelines are going to come at midfield where the angles are the best and you're equidistant to each goal line. But with such large sections, row position if the real key to finding great tickets.
Each sideline section in the 300 level contains more than 40 rows of seats and can be broken down into three distinct options.
The first of these options is in rows 1-6. Not surprisingly, these tickets are the most expensive in the upper deck. But the price tag comes with a good reason: these seats are located just above the club level and have views of the field that are very similar to the high-priced club. When you consider that lower level sideline seats aren't that great (due to their lack of elevation), these very well may be the best non-club seats in the stadium.
The next distinct row grouping is rows 7-20. With an enormous upper deck comes incredibly long walks up and down the stairs to get to and from your seats. These rows are ideal for fans who have mobility issues, fans who love to chug beer and then race to the bathroom and families who make frequent trips to the concourse. With views that are still quite good, these rows probably provide the best value of any seats in the upper deck.
Finally, the last group or rows is anything in 21 and above. These rows are accessed via a steep set of stairs and will have you at the top of the stadium. Some fans love sitting up here because of the camaraderie with other diehards, but if you're looking to impress a guest or bringing the family, opt for something a little more accessible.
If your budget only allows the high rows on the sideline, make sure to choose a section on the Chiefs side of the field, especially in sections 320-327. Thanks to the press box, these seats are among the first to get shade which will keep you cool during an early season game. And during a late season game, the wind will be much worse on the other side of the field.
