Staples Center Lower Level Center Seating


Sitting Here for a Basketball Game

For close proximity to the court and great unobstructed views of the action, consider sections in the center of the arena on the main concourse. Sit in section 119 to be close to the Lakers/Clippers bench or 102 to be near the visiting team. Alternatively, choose seats on the opposite side for head-on views of the players on the bench.

Each of these sections begins with seating in Row A and B closest to the court and then continues with rows 1-20. For the best value, consider seats in the top rows. The views are similar to the ultra-expensive Premier sections and you'll be just a step or two away from the section tunnel and concourse amenities.

Each row contains roughly 20 seats with accessible seating available at the top of select sections.  -
