University of Phoenix Stadium

"Heavy traffic and railing issues"

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

Comments

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

  • "Blocked from the big board"

    (Section 454) - -

    Walking into the stadium behind the north endzone, you get a great view of the amazing videoboard that sits above the south endzone. Sadly however, that was all just a tease as where I was sitting in Section 454 left me with no view of the gigantic TV. It would have been great to have the big bo...

  • "Good angle to field at a great height"

    (Section 405) - -

    The low rows of the 400 level are at a great height for seeing football. You can see the entire field without turning your head much, and you're not too high, so you can actually see a decent amount of detail. They're considerably better than double-digit rows. The only drawback are the railings....

  • "Low budget comfort"

    (Section 455) - -

    These seats were located at the highest possible row of seating in this section, even though the neighboring section went higher, there was nothing but empty concrete rows above my seats. This made it nice and quiet and didn't have to worry about anyone behind me, so I could really stretch out and ...
