Stadium seats for bleachers Buyer’s Guide
How we tested the stadium seats
To best replicate how people would really use these bleacher seats, we had to replicate a true game-going environment. So we tailgated for hours before each use, BBQed, had six beers, soaked up some sun, and then tested the chairs…or not. Unfortunately, we couldn’t justify doing that, but we dreamed of doing that, and hope you do similar when using these seats. Instead, we only replicated the seating environment, buying a plastic bench we could use for three hours, the average duration of most sporting events, from the comfort of our office.
We setup the benches and recorded a comfort “score” of 1-at the start, and then every subsequent hour thereafter, in order to see how the seats performed from a longevity perspective.
We treated the seats just like a game, taking short breaks to run to the bathroom or stretch our legs, but we made sure to always reserve a three hour window for sitting in order to best replicate a true game environment.
In order to save our backs, if a bench got an initial score of less than four, we immediately vetoed further testing. (And headed for our massagers instead.) An uncomfortable seat is an uncomfortable seat: it’s not suddenly going to get better, only worse.
In addition, we always tested first thing in the morning, spaced out tests over several days, and tested three times each, in order to reduce the bias back fatigue or simply feeling bad one day might create.
High marks in comfort make the Stadium Chair worth considering.
The Stadium Chair also performed well, but had no arm rests and slightly more give in the back area that created fatigue over time, putting it in second place.
On the low end of the scale, the Moss Green and Portable Recliner Picnic Seat were each subpar and not worth testing for the full duration. The Portable Recliner felt slightly better than just the bench, but the Moss Green hardly made a difference.
Next, we looked at the portability of the seats. Weight matters, but if the seat gives you a method of carrying the seats that distributes the weight, it’s not as big of a burden.
The Picnic Time and Naomi Home seats came with a helpful backpack strap that made lugging them around a breeze, even if you look somewhat ridiculous when doing so. These seats were two of the heavier models we used, so the backpack functionality was a nice-to-have that makes carrying them around feasible for any age or strength level.
The Moss Green, Rio Adventure Blue and Portable Recliner Picnic Seat all came with small straps that connected on two points of the seats, offering something you could either grip with your hand or swing around your shoulder when carrying.
All on the lighter side, these loops do the job, but will take up a hand or two if you’re thinking about carrying anything else into the game or lugging some things into a tailgate area from a far-away parking spot.
The Stadium Chair seat, while comfortable, was also by far the heaviest seat, and also required you hold onto it by a bar. It’s not unmmovable by any means, but could become a bit of a pain if lugging it from far away or trying to juggle a toddler. In terms of overall portability, it was the worst of the units we tested.
Solid scores all around make Rio a safe choice.
It has worse back support, no arm rests and slightly less padding, but overall is a serviceable option for someone who wants a backrest for the occasional game or event. It scored significantly better than the other seats in a similar price range.
It also includes a helpful under-seat strap, pictured below, that makes it the most reliable seat for not falling back on unsteady bleachers.
In addition, the Rio comes with two heating packs and includes pockets on the front of the chair for storage, an extra benefit for those who find themselves in colder temperatures. And at only 3.pounds, the seat is light and the attached strap makes it easy to carry from your car to the game.
The other stadium seats we tested
The Stadium Chair has the brand name to match its intent and is a quality chair with good comfort scores, especially at the beginning of the sitting period.
The Naomi Home Venice has a similar build and price as the Picnic Time chair, but isn’t quite as comfortable. It also has fewer color customization options, making it more difficult to match the chair to your favorite team.
On the positive side, the Naomi was the only chair we tested that had arm rests in a large-sized option, so if you’ve got a wider frame, it’s probably the best option for the cost.
The Moss Green stadium seat was the cheapest model we tested, but barely performs better than the bench itself. The cushion didn’t feel at all more comfortable than our plastic bench, although it did seem like a slight upgrade over the above bleacher we also sat on.
It may make your backside feel a bit better at the end of the three hours, but it’s not a purchase we can recommend unless you plan to use the seat one time only.
Bench is located in front of sections 1& 1The Oklahoma fans will be occupying at minimum the front half closest to the field of sections 12-19, so if you are looking to cheer with your fellow Sooners you want to make sure you sit in those sections.
By Bus: Several New York City transit bus lines provide service to the Stadium. The Bxand Bx1buses stop at East 161st Street and River Avenue; the Bxand Bxbuses stop at East 161st Street and the Grand Concourse, a short walk from the Stadium; and the BxMstops at the Grand Concourse and East 161st Street (northbound) and East 158th Street (southbound).
With its picturesque setting nestled at Chavez Ravine, Dodger Stadium has withstood the test of time to remain one of the most breathtaking venues to watch an event. Its massive 56,000 seating capacity is tops in baseball and in 2014, the Dodgers led all of baseball in attendance.
Located adjacent to Downtown LA, Dodger Stadium sits within an area named Chavez Ravine, named for Julian Chavez, a Los Angeles councilman in the 19th century.
Just below the Top Deck is the Teal Blue Level, or the Reserve. Affordable pricing and views of the park make these desirable for those not wanting to spend much. These seats extend to the very edges of the park on the right and left field, whereas the Top Deck seats are limited to behind home plate and to the 1st and 3rd baselines.
Alcohol is available for purchase in premium areas of the stadium. The possession or consumption of alcohol in the general seating areas of Kyle Field is expressly prohibited by University policy. Stadium personnel and law enforcement agencies will enforce this policy. Valid I.D. is required for purchase. A guest that appears to be 30 years of age or younger must produce a valid form of acceptable identification (i.e. Driver’s License, Passport, State Issued I.D. Card with photo, Military I.D. with photo).
There is a alcoholic beverage limit, per person, per identification. Alcohol service will be discontinued at the discretion of management. All guests must be 2years of age to purchase an alcoholic beverage.
Food at Wrigley Field that You Shouldn’t Miss
Food at the park is underwhelming. Even the deep dish pizza, a Chicago staple, is unimpressive. Eat in Wrigleyville before you come in. If you must, though, stick with what Chicago does best: sausages and dogs.
Hot Doug’s: for those in the bleachers, this Wrigley staple features dogs named after Cubs players of the past. Their selection rotates and utilizes fun flavor combinations, making each experience unique.
Free Stuff At Wrigley Field
The Bartman Seat – before 2016, it seemed like the Cubs would never shake their World Series curse. Cubs fans bitterly remember the 200NLCS against the Marlins, when fan Steve Bartman grabbed a foul ball before the Cubs’ left-fielder had the chance. The Cubs went on to lose the game, the pennant, and their best shot at a ring. Go spit on Aisle 4, Row 8, Seat 11if you want to keep the curse at bay.
Speaking of the beach, when it comes to function, you can opt for a lower-style beach chair. The advantage to the lower chair is that you can keep your toes in the surf or even allow the water to wash up over your legs. Beach chairs are typically made of aluminum, are lighter weight and rust resistant. But, if you don’t want to sit so low to the ground, you can go with the more traditional camp-style chair. Of course, the beach tends to get hot, so you might want to consider selecting a chair with a mesh back. This allows increased airflow, which can help you stay cool, and can also easily shake off the sand before it goes in your car. You can also choose a canopy chair to shield the sun or look for a “chairbrella” to attach to your chair.
Chairs with built-in insulated pockets are great for keeping beverages cool, even when the temperatures heat up. You may also want to consider a chair with storage pockets to keep your smaller personal belongings all in one hidden spot while you take a dip. These pockets could also help protect your gear from being covered in sand, which can be a pesky undertaking to get rid of. And don’t forget the convenience of chairs that fold up nicely into a bag or one with carry handles — making transportation a breeze.
If you’re camping and not carrying your gear too far, you can opt for a chair with more bells and whistles. Recliners, cup holders, storage pockets, and umbrellas or canopies are all great features to have in a camping chair. Side tables can make meal time around the fire more convenient, while padded headrests offer comfort after a long day in the great outdoors. You may also want to consider an oversized chair or rocking chair for total relaxation. These features may help you unwind, but they could get in the way during other activities.
Think about the arm rests as well. Traditional fabric chairs often have fabric arms that give you next to no support when you are trying to get up. Chairs that offer hard arms could give better support when you’re getting in and out of the chair.
SIZE AND WEIGHT
Foldable chairs seem relatively light. That is, until you have to carry them for a few miles. Suddenly, their size and weight start to matter. So, if you know you will be walking and carrying them for a period of time, you may want to choose one of the chairs that has corded legs and collapses to a smaller, more compact size and lighter weight.
Designed by sports Architectural firm Populous, the new version of the Yankee Stadium was designed to closely resemble the appearance of the original 192stadium with the exterior made through extensive use of Indiana limestone, granite and pre-cast concrete. On the inside, the stands mirror the original seating arrangement however comfort levels are in line with modern stadia, capable of seating just under 50,000.
The first football match held at Yankee Stadium was part of the World Football Challenge between Chelsea and Paris Saint German on July 22nd 2012, and a month later A.C Milan took on Real Madrid with each game attracting 38,20and 49,47fans respectively.
To ensure fan safety and the enjoyment of events at the Carrier Dome, sitting or standing in the aisles, stairways or Vomitories is not permitted. Fans will be asked to return to their ticketed seats. Standing on metal bleachers, or chairs is also prohibited.
As a courtesy to others, guests are asked to refrain from walking down the aisles during play and the playing of the National Anthem.
GCI Camping Stool Tripod with Back
This 3.lb tripod seat offers everything you need for a quick break from a long hike. The high quality denier polyester is durable as well as comfortable with an extra wide, padded backrest for added support. The legs are made from powder-coated steel, giving them a hard, tough finish that keeps nasty rust away.
It has a handy shoulder strap but this can sometimes can be slightly awkward to carry, especially if you already have a bulky load.
For great views of the race minus some of the lavish VIP amenities, Clubhouse Box seats are your best bet.
Clubhouse sections are on the 1st-3rd floors of the Clubhouse at Churchill Downs and include sections 312-321, 21& 220 and 111-118.
Most all Boxes are seat boxes. They all have chair backs and are more comfortable and festive than the grandstand bleachers. There are seat boxes in the 3rd floor Finish Line area. The First floor Clubhouse boxes are predominately out in the open whereas the 3rd floor boxes are mostly under cover. We can accommodate both sections. The 3rd floor offers the best view while the 1st floor is somewhat more festive as its closer to the track. The Clubhouse offers a more “dressed up” selection of amenities. The food and beverage options, betting windows and restrooms are more plentiful and accessible than the grandstand.
Keep in mind, you can always move down at Churchill Downs. If you have seats on the 3rd floor you are free to move down to the 2nd floor of the Clubhouse or 2nd-floor Clubhouse Box seats. The same is true for 2nd-floor Clubhouse seats, meaning you also get access to the 1st floor of the Clubhouse and 1st-floor-Clubhouse-Box sections or walk over to the Grandstand if needed.
A Powerful Wireless Network Solution
The top priority to ensure fan interaction is connectivity, not just for fans, but also for internal staff, vendors, contractors, press and luxury suite guests. Many younger fans are leaving stadiums at half-time if they can’t connect to the internet. And offering better Wi-Fi also means more money from additional food, beverage, merchandise and upgrade purchases. It’s not enough to just provide Wi-Fi. Fans expect a fast, secure and reliable connectivity. On average, larger stadiums are installing 700+ wireless access points and there are multiple third-party companies like AT&T, Cisco and Verizon that provide end-to-end wireless network services.
While beacon implementation across stadiums has been slow, they’re definitely happening. Teams that already implemented beacons use them to send exclusive, stadium-only promotions and trivia to fans devices. The geomapping also helps alert fans on closest restrooms with the shortest wait times etc. More importantly, teams are using beacons to track fan behaviors, movement and spending inside stadiums. So far, 20 of the 30 MLB stadiums have already implemented beacons.
High-Speed Cameras for Ultimate Gameday Memories
New products like the high-speed selfie cameras made by Fanpics are making it easier than ever for fans to take selfies at stadiums and games. These state-of-the-art cameras can be installed at multiple locations and are capable of capturing photos of every single fan in the venue, all at the same time! These cameras can take up to million images during every game and venues can set them up to be triggered during game highlights so the audience’s reactions can be captured.
If you go with a friend(s), consider buying a combination of cheap and amazing seats: this way, you can split the cost and trade off time in the great seat. E.g., you could trade time in seats in Promenade vs Courtside, or between stadiums (in Ashe vs a reserved seat in Armstrong or Grandstand). I do this every year with my best friends.
The direct phone number to the U.S. Open Box Office is 718-760-6363.
201US Open Event Guide. If someone you really want to see will play on Grandstand or Armstrong, get to the grounds as early as you can so you can be among the first in line when the gates open at 9:30am then speed-walk to those stadiums and grab the best seat you can. (that now have bleachers seating over 1,000 people) for close sightings of the superstars including Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Rafa, Serena Williams. View the practice schedule to see when/where players are practicing (you can also see it on the official US Open Everywhere App).
First of all thanks for reading my article to the end! I hope you find my reviews listed here useful and that it allows you to make a proper comparison of what is best to fit your needs and budget. Don’t be afraid to try more than one product if your first pick doesn’t do the trick.
Most important, have fun and choose your stadium seats for bleachers wisely! Good luck!
