Best Seats for Great Views of the Field at Kauffman Stadium

Recommended seats are highlighted on the map

When it comes to ballpark shape, sitelines and seating levels, Kauffman Stadium is a fairly traditional ballpark by today's standards. The stadium is relatively symmetric without any major quirks or obstructed views to worry about. Generally speaking, when it comes to getting the best view, you tend to get what you pay for.

As with most ballparks, the most desirable views are located behind home plate. These include Crown seats at field level, 100 level sections, lettered Diamond Boxes and seats on the 400 Level. Among these options, the seats on the View (400) Level are far-and-away the cheapest tickets. You'll also find that these are the only seats behind home plate that do not look through the protective netting. Instead, you'll have an entirely clear bird's eye view of the view and a head-on look at the videoboard. For the best overall experience, sit below row M and start your search with tickets in sections 418-422.

If you're looking at tickets in 100 level sections behind home plate and on the infield, the best views will come from sections 119-135. Specifically, we recommend the last six rows in these sections, labeled S-X. While you won't be right up against the field, these rows offer a little bit of elevation so you can see side-to-side without turning your neck constantly. Similar views can be found in Diamond sections A-F and the front rows of nearby 200s sections - but the Diamond Boxes come with a higher price-tag and there is a lot of distracting foot traffic in front of the 200s sections.

For fans looking for an all-around comfortable experience, the loge level offers excellent views and excellent protection from the elements. These seats slightly overhang the sections below so that the front rows are closer to the field than the back rows of the 200s - and all loge seats feel closer to the field than you might expect. The seats down the line don't offer the best angle towards home plate, so we recommend aiming for sections 306-317 as a first choice.

Among seats to avoid at a Royals game, there are three items to consider:

  • Outfield seats - especially those in right field - are exceptionally sunny. Especially in the late afternoon and early evening while the sun is setting, there will be a strong glare looking towards home plate.
  • The same rows in 200s sections that provide the best cover will also have somewhat-limited views due to the overhang. Sit in rows NN or below for the best views.
  • The upper deck is one of the largest in the major leagues - and rows at the top are way up there. Unless you're attending a playoff game or have to be out of the sun, sitting above row HH in the 400s sections is strongly discouraged.
