Levi's Stadium Seating Chart & Tips
The BNY Mellon Club area has some of the best seats to enjoy a perfect view. You can find these club seats on the 100 level on both sides of the field. Ensure you are seated around 10-20 of the 100 level to get the best price level.
These seating positions will get you up close with the players. Plus, these club seats feature wider cushioned seating, beverage options, all-inclusive food, and exclusive access to the club’s lounges.
Since you now know the best seats to be up close and personal with players, avoid 200 level seats because they offer the poorest views of the stadium.
