Best for... watching the game, being close to the action

Avoid if... you consider yourself "Big" and "Tall"

Great corner endzone view of entire field

Feb 2018

Section 217, Row 24, Seats 7-8

Had these seats from the beginning of stadium opening through the 2008 season. Great seats for a corner endzone view of entire field where you're still down low enough as opposed to being WAY up in the top section, yet are still high enough to see entire field and play from above. The seats are up towards back/top of the section which as far as a vantage point, I prefer more than the front rows of the section. And when the play is coming towards your side of the field, these are great seats. Saw another upset fan comment about fans "neighbors" being unruly and spilling beer on them and had to buy an umbrella to keep the beer off. I call bullcrap first of all because umbrellas aren't allowed in Gillette for football games, nor are they sold there. Sounds like an out of towner who didn't get the experience they wished (kind of understandable given you root for opposing team) but it's far from what we've seen in Philadelphia. But even if they were Patriots fans, fans standing up shouting and spilling a beer happens. Especially at an event where the overwhelming majority are consuming alcohol before and during the games. No different than any football game anywhere. This isn't going to be an opera experience nor should anyone dealing in reality think so. But it also should never be a bad experience and there are plenty of options to make sure it isn't. If anyone feels they're not getting the proper response from the security in their section, there are plenty of security supervisors and managers also around (every level of security have different color jackets so you can tell whose what) but If you felt you weren't getting the response from the first tier security that you wish, you can always find someone above to voice your concerns further. And they're all around too. And even more, if you don't feel you're getting proper help from any of the in stadium folks, there's always cops around who you can escalate things above security and windows located on the lower level cocnourse around both 50's where there's always a couple of cops around along with stadium management/security heads that you can escalate things to. Not sure if they have them in the upper level concourse. Either way you can file your gripes with them and they would handle it with follow up if necessary. The vast majority of seats in the stadium are season tix holders and each season tix holder is held accountable for their behavior as well as those who they give or sell their tix too outside of the tix exchange program. So, I have a tought time believing that review about poor neighbors, etc. didn't get the appropriate action taken IF it was escalated to the proper officials and not just the lowest level (basically ushers) of security. Plenty of options if you're that upset and again... no umbrellas allowed so that's an outright lie. As far as fans in any section 217, the overwhelming majority are season tix holders and know or see each other at each game or the majority. They also know the rules so will there be an occasional boob, ...sure. But for the most part it's a decent crowd to see a game and again the view is terrific for a corner endzone viewpoint. Bottom line, I'd find it hard to think your experience in this section be anything other then good at the worst and that goes for both fan interaction and game viewing experience.

  • "Really Good Seats"

    (Section 236) - -

    Our seats were definitely not as close as I would have preferred but they were very good seats and we had a great view of the action. We have been to many games at Gillette and typically sit near the end zone, these were better because we were high enough to be able to see the whole field and at a ...

  • "Super Comfortable"

    (Section 225) - -

    The seats were nicely angled toward midfield and it made the seats incredibly comfy for just sitting back and watching the game, even though the players seemed pretty small at the other end of the field. It was very convenient to be just 2 rows up from the entry tunnel that led you down a few steps...

  • "Ignorant neighbors"

    (Section 205) - -

    The surrounding seats were filed with children, aged 20-25 (aka juvenile delinquents), who continually spilled beer, kicked the seats, spilled beer, banged on the seats, spilled beer, swore, spilled beer, invited friends from all over the stadium to come by, spill beer, climb over seats, spill beer ...
