Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Sideline Seating


Sitting Here for a Football Game

The iconic LA Coliseum holds more than 90,000 guests - and nowhere is this more evident than in the sideline sections. These sections contain up to 93 rows of seats and some ticket sellers will refer to different rows as lower, mid and upper (now 100, 200, 300). Much will be changing on the south sideline with a renovation project that is underway and will continue to be underway through the 2018-19 season.

The lower rows - usually 43 and below - are usually the most sought-after tickets, owing to their position closest to the field. While sitting close to the field is an incredible experience, we recommend avoiding at least the first 15 rows. These rows are incredibly close to the ground and it can be difficult to see over players on the sideline.

Our favorite spot among the lower portion is in rows 30-43. The elevation of these rows makes it easy to see the entire field, and being just below the entry tunnel is a major bonus.

200 rows (mid rows) are typically 44-68, while 300 rows (upper rows) are 69 and above. For fans familiar with NFL stadiums, the mid rows are comparable (in elevation) to a club level, while the upper rows are similar to an upper level.

One common complaint among fans in rows 44-52 is that people crowd out of the tunnels and block your view. For that reason, we recommend saving a few bucks and choosing a seat in rows 55-65 to be on the safe side. Similar issues arise in rows 69-75, which are also close to the entry tunnel.

For USC home games, the Trojans players use the sideline in front of sections 21-23. And for Rams games, sections 6-8 is behind the home sideline. Regardless, we recommend the South sideline sections (4-10) over the North side. The sun sets behind these sections and not directly in your face.

The front part of Sections 24 and 25 are reserved for USC students. Seats nearby will be well aware of this fact as this area gets a little more loud and rowdy than the rest of the stadium.

There have been extensive renovations to the LA Coliseum as of late. The south sideline is getting a big face lift with new seats, suites, and press boxes. Due to this massive project, construction will still be underway during the season. The seats in the lower half of sections 2-12 have already been replaced and will be brand new for the 2018 season.  - RateYourSeats.com

    Amazing view, directly outside of the tunnel on the left side. These are the only two seats in their own row. Restrooms and concession stands are amazingly close. You can go and return within a couple of plays. I wouldn't trade them for any other section. These are two of the best that the Memorial...
