State Farm Stadium

"Heavy traffic and railing issues"

Seat Review From Section 435, Row 1, Seat 22
Aug 2014

If you don't like watching most of the game through the railings and contending with fans constantly walking up and down the entry aisle just in front of you, these seats are definitely not for you. I was in the first row in the upper portion of Section 435 (the lower rows are lettered, and the rows in the upper portion are numbered).

I've found that being in the front row of any seating area can often be a gamble due to guard railings impeding the view, and this seat was definitely a gamble I lost. Just in front of the seat is the stairway to get up to the numbered rows of the section, leaving a large hand railing right in front of the view. If I had to estimate, I might say that only 30% of the field is viewable without looking through a railing of some sort. And when you constantly have fans walking up and down the staircase to get to and from the seats, the view quickly becomes even more difficult.

If it weren't for the constant traffic and obnoxious metal railings staring you right in the face, the seats might be decent as they face right at midfield with the large videoboard just a glance up in the background, and have a nice ledge in front for resting food and drink. But the viewing issues were just too much for me, and I would not sit here again. Instead, I'd maybe try to sit a few rows higher in neighboring Section 436 where I wouldn't have some many issues from other fans walking to and from the seats.

Avoid if... you want to watch the game

    (Section 403) - -

    When you get to the 400 level, make sure you purchase all nine of your beers, all six of your hot dogs and all twelve of your churros before getting to your seats. You will not want to come back down the stairs after going up once. But good luck carrying all that stuff up, and good luck figuring out...

  • "Excellent upper level seats"

    (Section 455) - -

    Other than not being able to see the large videoboard (which was behind me to my left), it is hard to find something bad to say about these seats. The view of the field is great from this elevated position, and I could see all areas of the field with no problem at all. The guard railing at the fro...

  • "Better views in rows behind"

    (Section 455) - -

    The railing at the very front of the section ruins what could have been a great view to the field. I understand they need to have the railings there for safety, but unfortunately that means you have to look through metal to watch parts of the game. With only 2 rows of seating in my section, it was...
