State Farm Center

"Absolutely no legroom for a small person"

Seat Review From Section 248, Row 2, Seats 4-5
Apr 2018


I'm a small person, 160 lbs, and 5' 9". Seats themselves are short and very narrow and absolutely NO leg room! I plan on never attending any other event, sports or otherwise at the State Farm Center!

I realize just an inch or 2 adds up to a few less people on capacity, but this is like being in a full elevator, then trying to sit down. Stadium was definitely designed for capacity and not comfort for the people paying ridiculous prices inside the building, not to mention the parking prices!

Had a good view, but constantly re-positioning yourself to try and find a comfortable position absolutely ruined the experience. Can't imagine a tall or large body individual trying to enjoy anything.

State Farm needs to warn people in advance of the poor seating before they hand over their hard earned money!!! Even people sitting around us were complaining during the event. Sad.

Avoid if... you want to watch the game, you're bringing the family, you consider yourself "Big" and "Tall", you're cheering for the away team, climbing stairs is difficult
