Best Seats for Kids and Family

Our list of top recommendations for bringing the family to a football game at Gillette Stadium has a clear starting point thanks to two different designated family sections. Located on the second seating tier, sections 225 and 238 feature a strict no-alcohol policy which helps to promote a less rowdy atmosphere and gentler language from neighboring fans. These second tier corner sections are very similar in regard to views, both having a comfortable angle to the center of the field from a very good viewing height. The entry tunnels are located near row 3, so we would advise searching in rows 12 and lower to keep your walk up and down the aisle at 10 rows or less.

If you prefer being on the lowest seating tier when bringing your crew to a football game, there are some excellent options located in all four corners of Gillette Stadium. The upper rows (34 and higher) of sections 102-104, 115-117, 124-126, and 137-139 are an ideal area for a family as you'll never be more than 5 rows away from the concourse - eliminating any lengthy walks up and down the aisle. But the best feature of these seats is the overhead coverage from the seating deck above, which will give you and your group some protection from the weather. If you're little ones are Patriots fans, you'll want to opt for sections 102-104 or 115-117 as these are closer to the home team sideline.

Also found on the lower seating tier, the upper rows of sections 118-122 deserve some consideration as well when searching for a good spot to bring your family. Rows 34 and above here will not have the same great overhead coverage that you'll find in the lower level corner sections mentioned previously, however you do still have the shorter walks up and down the aisles (no more than 5 rows). Views are incredibly comfortable as you simply look straight ahead to follow the action on the field and the videoboard above the far endzone. With the Optum Field Lounge located just below, there are just 20 rows of reserved seating in each of these sections, creating a smaller more comfortable atmosphere.

Finally, when searching for tickets for your family outing at Gillette Stadium, we recommend avoiding the upper portion (rows 8 and higher) of the 300 level sections whenever possible. These seats are very high up in the stadium, are exposed to the weather, and have very steep walkway aisles when moving between the seats and the concourse.

Sections 225 and 238

  • Alcohol prohibited seating area
  • Less rowdy and a much safer area for children

Rows 34-38 in Sections 102, 103, 104 and 115

  • Easy walk to and from the seats
  • Overhead protection from the weather
  • Good viewing angles to the videoboards

Rows 34-38 in Sections 118, 119, 120 and 121

  • No more than a 6 row walk to reach the seats
  • Comfortable straight away views of the field and videoboard
  • Smaller feel due to the Optum Field Lounge just below

Best Seats for Impressing a Guest

For an impressive spot at Gillette Stadium for a Patriots football game, look no further than the premium Putnam Club seats located near midfield on their own private seating deck. Not only will you have spectacular sideline oriented views from an absolutely perfect viewing height, but you also get the great perks that comes with being a club seat ticket holder. The wider plush seats while watching the game are a very nice touch, and your guests are sure to appreciate the upscale environment of the luxurious club lounge which has top notch food and beverage options available for purchase. Entry tunnels are located at the top of the sections, so you'll just have to make a choice as to whether you prefer to have closer views in the lower rows, or shorter walks to and from the lounge in the upper rows. When searching for Putnam Club tickets, we recommend passing on sections 6, 13, 28, and 35 as the additional railings at the sides of these sections can create sub par views of the near endzone for select seats.

While you won't get the same red carpet treatment on the lower seating tier, the highly sought after 50 yard line views in sections 109-110 and 131-132 are another great spot for providing a memorable outing. Opt for seating rows 20 and up where the seating height creates optimal views, and your guests will be amazed by the perfect positioning for taking in a football game. Should the weather forecast be less than ideal, you can even find overhead coverage if you search further up in rows 34 and higher on the east sideline (sections 109 and 110). Pats fans will want to be in sections 109-110 where you are closer to the home team sideline, but if your guest is a supporter of the visiting team, opt instead for sections 131-132 on the west sideline.

One of the more unique options for an impressive gameday experience at Gillette Stadium is to purchase a pass to the Optum Field Lounge located just behind the south endzone. It is important to note that these passes will not get you entry into the stadium for the game (you still need to purchase a ticket elsewhere in the stadium!), however once inside the gates you can access this luxury lounge and stay for the whole the game if you desire. The lounge features a climate controlled indoor space decked out with numerous TVs, bars, and premium food and beverage for purchase, or you can head to the outdoor terrace which is right at field level and just behind the endzone! The Optum Lounge Club passes are difficult to come by, and if you do happen to find one available for purchase, don't be surprised by the expensive price tag.

Rows 3-23 in Sections CL10, CL11, CL12 and CL13

  • Amazing elevated view from the 50 yard line
  • Access to upscale Putnam Club lounges
  • Exclusive amenities, including padded seats and premium food and beverage

Rows 20-38 in Sections 109, 110, 131 and 132

  • Highly desirable 50 yard line seats on the lower tier!
  • Optimal viewing height in rows 20 and up

Recommended Seats for Partying and Socializing

Sections 120, 121, 142 and 143

  • Communal area behind these seats underneath the scoreboard for socializing
  • Great view of the scoreboard in case you miss some of the action on the field

Best Seats for Visiting Team Fans

If you're at Gillette Stadium to cheer on the visitors, one of the most popular spots is going to be behind the visiting team sideline on the lower seating tier. Sections 130-133 put you in prime position behind your favorite players, and also gives you good angles to both ends of the field. Sitting in the front rows will be an exciting choice as you'll be closer to the team, however overall views of the field can be difficult due to the lower seating height. Better views can be found in rows 20 and higher here, although as a result you will have to sacrifice being as close as possible to the players and coaches lining the edges of the field. The lack of an entry tunnel above section 131 (due to a press box) makes getting to and from seats there a bit more difficult, so if you prefer more convenience we recommend searching in sections 130, 132, or 133.

Another option which we advise supporters of the away team to consider are seats near the visiting team entry tunnel in sections 115 and 116. From here you get a great perspective of your players as they move between the field and the locker room during pre-game, half time, and after the last second ticks off the clock. Seats in section 116 do not extend all the way to the field, but will have you directly above the team tunnel. If you prefer being a bit closer, section 115 runs along the side of the tunnel and all the way to the bottom of the lower seating tier. Hoping to get a high five from your favorite players as they move through the tunnel? Search section 115 for seat number 8 in rows 1-2 or seat number 9 in rows 3-5, and you'll have the best chance by being right up against the side of the tunnel and close to field level.

While not as loaded with the more obvious attractions for a visiting team fan, we also recommend considering seats in sections 121-124 near the south west corner of the lower seating tier at Gillette. Tickets here will give you an intriguing viewing perspective right down the visiting team sideline, and also provides good angles to the iconic lighthouse and bridge above the north endzone. Opting for rows 29 and higher will leave you with a good viewing height, and also keep you close (no more than a 10 row walk) to a number of unique concession options located just above these south endzone seats.

Sections 130, 131, 132 and 133

  • Right behind the visiting team bench!
  • Excellent viewing angles near midfield
  • Close to the action on the lower seating tier

Sections 115 and 116

  • Closest seats to the visiting team entry tunnel!
  • Exciting atmosphere on the lower seating tier

Rows 29-38 in Sections 121, 122, 123 and 124

  • Good views of the visiting team sideline
  • Close to a number of unique concession options above the south endzone
  • Viewing angles to the iconic lighthouse and bridge at the north endzone

Best Seats for Great Views of the Field

Although many of the top rated views for football games at Gillette Stadium come from being near midfield, there are a number of other factors which fans would be wise to take into consideration when searching for tickets. Finding a balance between viewing height and proximity to the field is important here, as is knowing which spots have great natural angles and which spots have potential pitfalls.

Being on the lower seating tier is always a great option for feeling close to the action, however just as it can be said for many other stadiums across the NFL, Gillette does have some less than ideal views in the very front seating rows. If you prefer to be on the 100 level and want to ensure a fantastic view, we recommend searching in rows 20 and higher across sections 107-112 and 129-134. The positioning between the 20 yard lines gives you those desirable sideline viewing angles, but more important is your seating height in the upper half of the section. Avoiding those lower rows allows you enough elevation to be able to see over the sidelines and have a clear view of the action on the field.

But if the lower level isn't a must for you, and there's a bit more money in the budget to spend on tickets, some of the best views in the house will be found on the second level in the Putnam Club sections near midfield. The viewing height from this seating deck is superb, allowing you to have phenomenal viewing angles to all areas of the field. We recommend opting for Club sections 8-11 and 30-33 as these will have you in prime position between the 30 yard lines. Avoid the front two rows if possible as the safety railing can impact your view, and instead search stick to rows 3-12 where the views will be near unbeatable.

While the Putnam Club won't be an option for all fans due to the higher price of a seat, you can still take advantage of that excellent viewing height in other non-premium seating sections on the second seating deck. Corner sections 203-204, 215-216, 225-26, and 237-238 are excellent spots to score a view not only due to the seating height, but also because of the angling of the seats themselves which have you pointed almost perfectly at midfield. The corner perspective allows you to grasp the range of movement both from sideline to sideline and endzone to endzone, while also providing a good angle to the videoboard at the far end of the field. Again you'll want to stick to rows 3-12 here (avoid the first two rows due to the safety railing in front), and also be sure to pass on sections 205, 214, 227, and 236 as there is an additional railing on the side that can cause obstructions in select seats.

Our last recommendation for a great view at Gillette Stadium are the seats in the last 10 rows of sections 118-122 above the south endzone. While you don't get that desirable sideline viewing perspective, what you do have is an incredibly comfortable spot with straight away sight lines to both the field and videoboard (no head turning needed at all). Being within 10 rows of the concourse also allows for quicker trips to and from the restrooms and concessions, leaving you more time in your seat to enjoy all the action on the field. As an additional bonus, these seats also have a very nice viewing angle to the stadium's iconic lighthouse and bridge at the far endzone.

As a final note, we would urge fans looking for a spectacular view to avoid any of the seats on the upper 300 level. While they are certainly some of the most affordable seats, they are incredibly high up and far from the action, and there are also a number of spots on this upper seating tier where the safety railings and partition glass can impact your view.
