Best Seats for Great Views of the Field at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

Recommended seats are highlighted on the map

One of the most iconic venues in college sports - L.A. Memorial Coliseum - recently invited the NFL's Rams to make the stadium their temporary home. For fans of the Rams franchise, the Coliseum is a far cry from the Edward Jones Dome. The stadium is completely exposed to the elements (in SoCal, this is usually a good thing), and the stadium has just a single "level" of seating. Continue reading to find the best spot to watch your next Rams or USC Trojans football game.

The Field Isn't Centered Within the Seating Bowl

When looking at the Rams or USC seating chart, one of the first things you'll notice is that the field isn't centered within the main seating bowl. This isn't an illusion - seats near midfield do face slightly away from the 50 yardline.

Despite the odd angle, you will do well to find seats in sections 6H - 8H on the South sideline or sections 21L - 23L on the North sideline (the H/L distinction simply specifies High and Low seat numbers within their respective section). These sections are located closest to midfield and provide the most comfortable views of the field.

Getting the Best View Means Choosing the Right Row

Once you've decided on a group of sections, it's important to sit in a row that will maximize your siteline. This is incredibly important at the Coliseum where rows numbers go as high as 93 in some sections.

To get the best overall views of a Rams or USC game, we recommend rows 29-43 in the sideline sections mentioned above. It may be tempting to sit in a lower row, but we have found the players to be too distracting when sitting too close to the field. Rows 29 and higher allow you to easily see over the players - and afford you a comfortable view from end-to-end.

In addition to being at an ideal height, rows 29-43 are located just below the section tunnels at row 44. This is good for two things. First, you'll be within 15 rows of the tunnel for quick trips to and from the concourse. Second, there is a lot of foot traffic outside of the tunnel. Sitting just below the tunnel means that the foot traffic will be behind you instead of in front of you.

Sunny Seats

A final consideration when finding the perfect view is what side of the field to sit on. For most games, we recommend sections 6, 7 and 8 where the sun will be at your back instead of in your face. This is also the Rams side of the field. If the sun doesn't bother you - and you're cheering on USC - sections 21-23 will put you in the midst of fellow Trojans fans and alum.   - RateYourSeats.com
