The Inside Scoop on the Prudential Center Seating Chart

Ever wonder what seat numbers offer a better view for different types of events at The Prudential Center? Our Prudential Center Seating Chart review has all the answers you are looking for.

With as many as 20 seats per row at the Prudential Center, the right seat numbers can put you up to 70 feet closer to the action.  Ticket sellers often underestimate the value of their seat number, so being armed with the right information prior to purchase can help you find great deals on the best seats.  The main thing to remember here is that Seat 1 is always closest to the higher section number.

First lets take a look at the Prudential Center seating chart for the NJ Devils:

Let’s suppose you are looking at “center ice” club seats with access to the Fire & Ice Lounges (Sec’s 7, 8, 9, 18, 19, 20).  Based on the information I just gave you, would you pay more to sit in Section 18 Row 15 Seat 1 or Seat 20? Both are aisle seats, but one of them is between the blue lines and the other is some 70 feet closer to the Goal.  The answer is Seat 1.  The same goes for the 100’s and 200’s levels.  Seat 1 in Section 109 is practically on the face off spot, while a higher seat number can put you behind the goal.

NJ Devils Seating Chart with Rows and Seat Views


Helpful hint #1:  If you’re lucky enough to get tickets in the lower bowl, be weary about paying extra money for lower rows.  In my opinion, if you aren’t against the glass you are better off sitting in Row 13 or higher. Until about row 13 you’re gonna find your sight lines constantly weaving in and out of the glass with near-side corners of the ice out of sight altogether.

Helpful hint #2: The Devils shoot twice toward Sections 1 and 2.  So if you’re in the NJ Devil’s Army or in from Philly looking to heckle ole’ Marty Brodeur, make sure to keep that in mind.

Next, lets look at the Prudential Center seating chart for concerts.

The seating conventions here are the same, Seat 1 is always closest to the higher section number.  So if you’re looking at seats in Section 128, which seats number would you pay more for, Seat 3 or Seat 13? The answer is most likely Seat 13 since it would put you a good 35 feet closer to the stage.

Helpful hint #3:  If you’re big pimpin and like to sit on the floor, keep in mind that Seat 1 in Sections A, C, D & F is always closer to the center aisle, with the higher seat numbers moving toward the row’s outer edge. But if you are bringing children to the floor levels be careful. You are not allowed to hold your child to give them a better view of the action and because the floor is flat, they won’t be able to see!

Helpful hint #4:  Dollar for dollar the best section to see a concert from at the Prudential Center is the Bud Light Goal Bar.  The Goal Bar is Sections 23-28 (not shown on map) and is tucked neatly above Sections 1-4 and below Sections 101-106.  There are only 3 rows (A,B,C) in the Goal bar which features a full bar, padded seats, separate bathroom area and direct sight lines to the stage. These tickets are very pricey for Devils games, but you can most often find great deals for these seats on TickPick for concerts and family shows.

Helpful Hint #5: The official Prudential Center website provides a 3d seating chart with computer generated pictures of the venue, you can check that out here.

    Im interested in going to a twenty one pilots concert and the tickets at vivid seats vary money wise. There are GA0 tickets for 83$ and then there are GA0 tickets for $895 and im wondering which ones I should get and be guaranteed a good seat , is GA0 is a good seat

  • Laura Turchick

    how do seats for the twenty one pilots general admission concert work? the prices vary so will I get closer to the stage if I pay more?

  • Annie

    Is there an age limit for the goal bar? Really good price but have a 9 and 13 year old.

    • Connor Clark

      Hi Annie,

      It’s possible that that could change depending on the type of event you’d be attending We’d recommend contacting the venue’s box office directly in order to see what their policies are regarding this.

  • Rosabel Magsalin

    is Section 6 Row 9 Seat 19 any better?

  • Ruby

    Hey, we are looking at tickets for the Selena Gomez concerts at the Prudential center. They are tickets for GA/pit. I was wondering if you would have to stand or are there still seats so you can sit down sometime? Also, I’ve read that people in the pit area, as close as they were, the only downside was when the artist would walk up front of the stage(im not sure where)they would only see their back most of the time. Is it true? Where is a good area to be in the pit to possibly aviod that?

    • Jack Slingland

      Hi Ruby – The pit is standing room only, so you won’t be able to sit. There are no assigned seats so where you are located will depend on what time you get into the venue. If you want to have seats I would advise buying tickets in sections 9-10 or 17-18.

  • Angela

    Hello I am going to a concert for Kcon 2016 and I was wondering if Section 6 Row 20 Seats 7-9 are good seats. I am from San Diego, traveling to New Jersey for Kcon, so I was wondering if I got good seats? Thank you

    • Connor Clark

      Hi Angela,

      Those tickets should be absolutely fine with a solid view of the stage. They aren’t too high up and are on the lower bowl level so you should have a great time!

  • E K

    Are there seats in the rows marked WC? Would like to see a concert and some reasonably priced tix are offered in Sec 112. We don’t have or need wheel chairs will that be a problem?

    • Connor Clark

      Any rows marked WC are generally ones that will be able to accommodate those who need room for their wheelchair, however, if tickets are listed on a secondary marketplace, you can rest assured that you will have your own seat that would usually be a padded folding chair that would allow you to sit there. You don’t necessarily need to be disabled to purchase seats in WC rows, they’re just available to accommodate those that need them in case.

  • Lola

    Hello I would like to know where are best seats for JB concert July 9? 10,17,21 or mezzanine row 1?

    • Jack Slingland

      Sections 10 and 17 would be best the options for Justin Bieber.

  • Eye Love Bacon

    Hi all! Looking into Jeff Dunham tickets for my husband. Thinking about going with section 17 row 1 or row 4. Is row 1 set up slightly higher than the floor seats? I wanted section 18 but the only seats left are in row 15.

  • Nya

    I want to go get Exo Concert tickets but I don’t know which seats are closest to the performer, can someone help me out

  • Connor Clark

    Hi Famina, the Ringling Brothers will be likely be doing most of their performing towards the middle of the floor (which has been marked as the “Performance Area”), so if you were looking to get the best seats, we’d recommend looking at the lower level sections between 6 and 10, as well as 17 through 21 on the other side. If not one of those lower sections, the sections right above those ones mentioned in the Mezzanine level would probably be suitable as well!

  • Famina

    What section is the best for Ringling Brothers? This is my first time and I want my 3 1/2 year old son to enjoy it

  • disqus_Cn5adBaMY4

    Is it worth watching the devils Section 6 GL3, or a little higher up and in the center?

  • Aleasia Brown

    Would section 18 row 20 seat 13 be better than section 17 row 10 seat 5 or better than section D row 6 seat 5 for the Future Now Tour?

  • Ron

    Hi! I’m going to KCON 2015, and I’m just wondering what the goal bar is?

  • Mandi

    Hi, Does anyone have a review on goal bar tickets for prudential centre? Are they decent? Are they worth the money?

  • Michelle GG

    Hi there! I see everyone is talking about sections by number, but I am going to buy tickets for the KCON 2015 for our daughter, and I only sections 1-7 and then it skips to 20-22. I’m confused. Want seated seats but a close view of the entire stage for her. This is her first concert. Help?

    • Jack Slingland

      Hi Michelle – The seating configuration has not yet been determined for the event, but a safe bet would be that sections 6-8 and 19-21 would be good options.

  • JT

    I meant do they face the ring or walkway?

    • Jack Slingland

      JT – Not totally sure but I would imagine they face the ring.

  • JT

    In WWE shows, When you sit in sections a and c (walkway from stage to ring) do the rows face the rinn of the walkway? Example row 2

    • JT

      I meant do they face the ring or walkway

  • EV

    Wwe prudential which seats are best for a toddler section c row 2 seats 5-7 or section g row 4 seats 5-7

    • Jack Slingland

      Hi – It’s going to be tough for a small child to see on the floor since there is no elevation, but in this case row 2 would be preferable.

      • EV

        Thank you!
