This is the field level and provides the best view of the game from Sections 101-104 and 113-117, which are behind both sidelines. Sections 124-125 and 108-109 are directly behind the end zones.
These are the larger sections behind the 100 level, with only a walkway separating them. While this is called the “Upper Level” it’s really just an extension of the field level.
There are four sections in this level, 423 through 426. Again you still have a great view of the field as Independence Stadium does not have a bad seat.
