Best Seats for Visiting Team Fans at CenturyLink Field

Recommended seats are highlighted on the map

With the recent success of the Seahawks, CenturyLink Field has become one of the NFL's premier destinations for out-of-town fans. If you're visiting the Link as a fan of the away team, there are certain sections you want to target - and certain sections you want to avoid - when buying tickets to a game.

Visitor Sideline

First, the visiting team sideline is located on the East side of the field in front of sections 107-111. Because of their close proximity to the players, these sections are popular with visiting team fans hoping to be within earshot of their favorite players. Not surprisingly, we recommend sitting as close to Row A (the first row) as possible. While your view will almost certainly be obstructed by the players, you'll enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience and feel like you're a part of the team.

Visitor Tunnel

Another area on the lower level where visitor fans tend to cluster is near the Visitor tunnel. The visiting team runs in and out of the tunnel located in the Southeast corner of the field below sections 115 and 116. It's not uncommon to see dozens of fans crowding this area before the game in an effort to talk to the players or to obtain an autograph. Here are the seat and row numbers directly adjacent to the tunnel:

  • Section 114: Seats 14 and 15 are on the left side of the section

  • Sections 115 and 116: Row S is the first row directly above the tunnel

  • Section 117: Low-number seats in rows H-Q are next to the tunnel

  • Section 118: Low-number seats in rows A-G are next to the tunnel

Besides being close to your favorite players and sitting with a group of fellow fans, another reason to sit in one of these sections is to be close to the local craft beer stand near section 116. If you're from out-of-town, we recommend trying a beer by Elysian or Ghostfish - two of Seattle's most popular craft breweries.

Eat Like a Local

Because the price of Seahawks tickets has risen considerably over the past few years, lower level seats may not fit within your budget. Instead, consider tickets on the 300 level where prices usually run 40-60% cheaper than 100 level seats.

As a visitor fan, one area to target is Section 309 on the East side of the field. This section is located on the visitor side of the field, and is in close proximity to some of the best food on the upper concourse.

At Section 309 you'll find the "Best of Pioneer Square and Chinatown Eats" concession stand. This is a great way to be introduced to local Seattle cuisine (there is also the obligatory Starbucks near this section). Because 309 is located at midfield, tickets in these section are among the most expensive in the 300-level. Nearby sections will provide you with a similar view, while still keeping you close to local concessions.

Beware of the Hawk's Nest

One area of the Link where visitor fans are not exactly welcome is in the Hawk's Nest above the North endzone. This is a pro-Seahawks area where fans often stand, cheer loudly and are known for abusing visiting fans who step into their territory. Unless you're a glutton for punishment, we recommend avoiding sections 146-150 altogether. You won't be missing much - the seats themselves are uncomfortable and this area is heavily exposed to the wind.   - RateYourSeats.com
