One of the hallmarks of the KFC Yum! Center is the intimacy of the venue. Despite a capacity of more than 20,000, the venue maintains its standing as a prominent basketball venue because of its impressive setup. Nowhere is this more appreciated than in the corners of the 300 level where sections can grow as high as 23 rows.
The overhanging 200 level and small ring of suites means that the corners of the 300 level are much closer to the court than at a typical large-scale basketball venue. Fans seated in the first six rows of sections like 305, 306, 310 and 311 are made to feel much engaged in the action thanks to their proximity.
Although the seats are closer to the court than expected, these 300 level corner sections are still very large. Few basketball venues have more than 15 rows in the upper level - so fans at the top rows in these sections should be prepared to be seated relatively high up and are advised to take caution when walking up the stairs to their seats. If walking stairs is difficult, aim for rows D-J which are close to the entry tunnel.
