The Best Seats for the Arizona Cardinals
In my opinion,whether you sit on the Home bench (section 104 to 112) or the Visitor’s bench (section 126 to 134) doesn’t matter all that much. Obviously some of the best seats are sections 128, 129, 130 & 107, 108 and 109. Putting aside the so-close-to-the-players-I-can-smell-them factor, the best seats would definitely be between rows 10 and 20. When sitting at or near the 50 yard line, elevation is important for viewing all the action.
When looking to buy tickets in any of the 100s sections the first row seats are only desired for the experience, not for the view. Being in the first row of a section in the endzone can be great for the occasional touchdown, but this perk will also have it’s cons when the ball is on the opposite side. This comes down to personal preference, but I think it’s safe to say for the 100s sections on the sidelines most of the time you want seats higher then the 10th row.
The Best Cheap Seats in the State Farm Stadium Seating
With 63,400, it’s a wonder that The top tier at State Farm still has great views of the field. The Upper Level Main (sections 411-414 and 442-445) are you’re best bet when purchasing upper level seats. The prime spot in the center ensures an equal view of all parts of the field.
Note: Sections 114, 424 and 432 are Family Sections; no alcohol is permitted in these sections. Another thing to remember for big events at the stadium (Bowl games, Super Bowl) is that they add seats to the upper decks on the end zones that aren’t usually there to accommodate larger audiences. These seats are obstructed view seats so be wary when purchasing any seat number greater than 23 in the Terrace Level of the UofP Stadium.

Best User Review of the Arizona Cardinals’ Stadium
The online seating charts and visuals suck. The upper deck is much higher than the lower/ mid-level seats, and anywhere below the upper deck probably even offers a better view from a slanted angel. Not knowing this, I incidentally purchased two different sets of tickets (one set for a slanted lower-deck view and another for a side, upper-deck view) for the sum of over $500 only to have to sell two for a $200 loss.
The stadium is also frigid-cold in the winter considering that State Farm Stadium is a dome. However, they probably open it to save money instead of heating it and the Western sun blinds (but warms… and even tans!) those in the upper Eastern side (Section 440 to 455). So, if you are sitting on the Eastern side (especially in the upper portion), bring sunglasses and/ or a hat. And if it’s getting close to winter, regardless where you are sitting don’t forget to bring warm clothes!
