For most Raiders games, only the west side seats are open to fans. Given the rounded shape of the upper deck, these seats offer a better-than-expected angle of the field and very comfortable - albeit distant - views.
While these seats are located on the less sunny side of the field, they're actually among the most exposed seats in the stadium. These seats will see an abundance of sunshine until about an hour before the sun fully sets.
There are 17 numbered rows in these sections with lower rows being closest to the concourse tunnel.
