Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, hosts a variety of events including football games and concerts. The best seats at Gillette Stadium ultimately depend upon what type of event you are attending and where the entertainment is centered on the field. The oval-shape of the stadium offers great seating from almost any perspective but there are some seating areas in Gillette Stadium that are more popular (and pricier) than others.
Without a doubt, the lower level seats from the 25 to 50 yard line are the highest rated seats at Gillette Stadium especially for football games. These seats are also known as premium seats and they are hard to come by. These hot seats are located in sections 108 – 111 on the Patriots home side and sections 130 – 133 on the visitor’s side.
Just above the premium seats are the club seating areas. While you are a little higher up and not as close to the field, the club seats give visitors to Gillette Stadium a good view of the field. Club seating that is in the middle include sections CL8- CL11. Sections CL6 and CL7 are closer to the Patriot Place Ramp and CL12 and CL13 are near the south end. On the visitor’s side, the ultimate club seating is found in sections CL-30 through CL33. Club seating offers a great view for concerts.

Level 100 has 38 rows of seating, level 200 has the clubhouse rows and 27 general rows, and level 300 has 26 rows which are at the top or above the other seating rows.
