Premier Seating Features & Amenities

Club seating at Staples Center is also called Premier Seating. These sections are located just above 100 level sections and extend from corner-to-corner. Their location along the sides and roughly 25 rows from the court make them highly desirable for fans wanting a great view and additional perks.

Ticketholders at Clippers and Lakers games will enjoy in-seat food and beverage service with traditional stadium food and LA specialties. From your seats you'll be able to order from a specialized menu that also includes beer, wine and liquor. All menu items are priced a la carte (these seats are not all-inclusive).

If you choose to leave the comfort of your extra-padded seat, you'll have access to the San Manuel Club on the suite level. In addition to upscale dining selections and buffet tables, you'll have access to a full bar with more than a dozen flat-screen televisions. The Club is a great meet-up place before, during or after the game for those looking to connect with friends or guests in a more lounge-like atmosphere.

These seats may have different amenities for hockey games. See the Kings Premier Seating Review for more information.

Premier Corner Sections

The cheapest way to sit in the Premier Level is by sitting in one of the corner sections. These seats don't have the same great views as the sections near mid-court, but they enjoy the same amenities at a fraction of the price.

The biggest complaint among ticketholders in these corner sections is that the basket does disrupt your view of the action at the hoop nearest you. It's worse if you're seated behind the basket, but you won't enjoy the clean sitelines that center seating offers.

If you're OK with the corner sitelines, these seats are a great way to save money on Premier tickets. You'll still be treated to in-seat wait service and be able to order off the club menu. These seats are a great way to entertain a guest or client without paying a premium to sit at center court.

Premier Center Sections

The Staples Center features one of the closest club seating experiences in all of basketball. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Premier sections 4-6 and 13-15 located along the sidelines. These seats combine impressive views and upscale amenities to form arguably the best seats at a Clippers or Lakers game.

Unlike most stadiums where the club level is located on a separate tier of seating, the Premier seats are located just behind 100 level sections about 20 rows from the court. This gives these seats enough elevation to see both sides comfortably while still feeling like a part of the game.

One of the best amenities available to Premier seat ticketholders is in-seat wait service. You'll be able to order off an exclusive menu and have food and drink delivered directly to your seats.

      I love the "PR" sections at Staples Center for the exclusive experience they provide away from all the other fans. The PR sections have a separate concourse that is only accessible for fans holding these types of tickets, and is much less crowded than the rest of the stadium. This makes getting up f...

      Seats were great. I was able to really enjoy the game from the seats. I could actually see the players without looking up at the screen.
