Rose Bowl Stadium Seating
The most iconic College Football Bowl Game, the Rose Bowl, is played at the stadium of the same name, The Rose Bowl. The Rose Bowl Stadium is located in Pasadena, California, which is just outside of Los Angeles. The stadium is one of the last iconic bowl-style venues left and produces great views from every seat. The capacity is just under 91,000, also making it one of the largest football stadiums in the world. The home sideline is in front of sections 3-7, while the visitors' sideline is in front of sections 17-21.
There are 28 sections at the Rose Bowl, with each section divided into a lower and upper portion. The rows in the lower section start lettered (in reverse order) and then move from rows 1-25; that means that row A and row 1 meet each other. On the ends of the field, row N is typically the first row. The same holds true on the west (Sections 17-19) and east (Sections 3-5) sides of the stadium. The low rows on the side of the field can often be obstructed by players; for UCLA home games the lowest rows are blocked off on east side of the stadium and start at row B. The upper section's rows are generally numbered 29-77 on the sides of the field, while the upper sections on the ends of the field are generally numbered 30-77. Sections 1-8 and 15-22 contain seatbacks.
The unique bowl shape of the Rose Bowl Stadium make for a lot of good seat views. For the best value, we recommend tickets in a lower corner section like Section 23. That section is often less expensive than its peer sections around the stadium. Just make sure you buy tickets located high enough up, in-terms of the row, to not have any obstructions. Tickets like that in Section 23 may be available under $400 per ticket which is nice value compared to comparable seat locations.
