Lucas Oil Best Seats?


Recommended Posts

So I've been to LOS before, in the higher end zone seats and it was a good view, but I want something a little more personal.

 

So, for seasoned veterans, what do you think the best sections are?

 

From my own research it looks like 237-243 would be optimal, but what about 235 & 236 / 245 & 246.

 

Or maybe 337-343?

 

All opinions are appreciated!

To each their own, but my preference is to be up a little higher, between the corner and the 10 yard line. It affords a perfect angle and distance for watching plays unfold and for avoiding too much foreshortening in either direction.

I'm currently in 404, and wouldn't mind sliding a little further out of the corner, but the view is great.

I sat in 433 once and loved the angle. Wouldn't have minded down a level or two, but really enjoyed it. 

 

And for the OP:The Colts site has an interactive seat map for selling season tickets. You can check the view from various seats and pan around to check the view.

The Indy Star had one from the the opening of Lucas oil.

I don't think you could wrong with any of those seats.  Also, I don't think there is a 246.  238-242 and 338-242 are in the club section which will cost more money but you get more amenities.

Does anybody know if the 208 section is ok.

 

I had section 208 for a B1G Ten championship game, and I thought they were pretty solid..especially when the teams were on our side of the 50. The only downside I can see, imo, was when they were in the redzone on the other side of the field (still wasn't that bad though)..but you can look on the big screen if you have trouble following the action in those situations. Anyways, I wouldn't have any problem buying tickets from that section again..then again I'm pretty easy to please ha.

It's probably too late to try this for this year.....  and I don't know if it will appeal to you.....

 

But....

 

I'ven been a Stanford season ticket holder for only a couple of years.   When I looked into buying,  trying to get two tickets pushed me out toward the 20-25 yard line,  maybe even further toward the end zone.

 

But....  if I was willing to buy just one ticket for me and only me,  I could buy a seat on the 40.   And so that's what I did.

 

I did that with the Rams when they were playing an Anaheim before they moved to St. Louis.   Buy one seat and just make friends with the other ticket holders around you.    You can get a much, much better ticket than you can if you're looking for two or more...

 

Look into it...   and maybe it's a better idea for next year or beyond?   

 

Just some food for thought....

I agree with others it is your personal preference.  I think mine our one of the best value.  North end zone section 153 on the aisle by 152 immediately behind the camera cutout.  Kind of neat watching some of the game through the camera and talking to the various cameramen.  Looking forward to season number 30 GO COLTS!!

Honestly, there are very few (if any, anymore) bad seats in LOS. I have season tickets in the lower 618 section and love the seats (had these seats since LOS opened).

Last year I went to four games at various levels and could see and enjoy the game at them all. 

 

Vikings game section 220 row 4 $99 issue price

Dolphins 624 row 17  $38 issue price

Titans 534 row 2 $69.00 issue price

Texans this wasn't a real ticket a paper printout so I don't still have it but it was in the $38 cheap seats last year.

 

Got all the tickets off Ebay and shopped around until I found deals.  If I had to pick I would probably go to several games in the cheap seats over just one in the expensive ones.  Being lower definitely isn't always better.

I'm in 446 and really enjoy them.

 

The corner view and height gives you depth both down and across the field but you're not so high as to not be able to see the details.  Plus, we're in one of the two corners where the big TV is directly across the field as opposed to having to look down a sideline to see.

We have season tickets in sec 229 and it is a perfect angle to see a touchdown and we don't have to deal with the hot sun from the roof. I would say there are good seats anywhere on the end where the Colts come out i've never been in the upper part of the stadium so I don't know how it is up there.

So far I've sat in 320(vikings,401(x2,once for jaguars,one for browns),and then in section 54(bills),and 634 the moved over to the 633 since there were seats empty and my friend and her fiance came and sat by us(dad,and 2 cousins)(titans game).There were all pretty good.I'm one of those people who don't care where I sit though.

My favorite sections are anything in the 300's.  I have season tickets now in 451 and really like those as well.  But when I didn't have season tickets, I always tried to get something in the 300's.  There are only 5 rows of seats at that level and most of the fans are fantastic -- no "other team fans" available.  The 200's are great as well. Can't wait for the season to start.

    • Here is my mock updated after hearing from For The Colture and others on what type of players Ballard may be interested in...   Trade - Indy trades 21st overall pick to Pittsburgh for their 24th overall, and 3rd & 4th round picks.   Round 1 Pick 24 (PITT): Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern  Round 2 Pick 22: Joe Tryon, DE/OLB, Washington Round 3 Pick 23 (PITT): Brady Christensen, OT, BYU Round 4 Pick 22: Jordan Smith, DE/OLB, UAB Round 4 Pick 23 (PITT): Monty Rice, ILB/OLB, Georgia Round 5 Pick 21: Marlon Williams, WR, Central Florida Round 6 Pick 23: D'Ante Smith, OT, East Carolina Round 7 Pick 21: Malik Herring, DT/DE, Georgia
    • Bateman would have to be drafted 21 he is going top 25
    • Looks maybe just above league average until you take Campbell out with injury. (Would never want anyone to be injured, just Can’t count on him at this point)   then just looks like the average middle of the league group.
    • Oh, I loved the Buckner trade as well, I just didn't see it as a "Ballard" type deal, seeing how up until that deal, he never made any splash FA signings.  
    • @Barry Sears   I will give you mine for Baseball too.   Indiana   Victory Field- Indianapolis. International League. Was my first professional baseball game like 15 years ago or so.    Four Winds Field- South Bend, IN. Midwest League. Went with a friend to see Cubs prospects. Really liked the smallness close to field feeling there.   Illinois   Dozer Park- Peoria, IL. MIdwest League- Numerous since I lived there for 13 years went from Cubs to Cards affiliate. Also worked there for a summer   Wrigley Field- Chicago, IL. Numerous times of course.   Guaranteed Rate Field - Chicago, IL. Saw White Sox vs Tigers and only 7 inning game as it poured rain after the 7th and game ended.   Iowa Principal Park Des Moines, IA. PCL - Was back in 2014 when Javy and KB were both there. Actually got a picture with KB and autograph after the game.   Massachutes Fenway Park- Boston, MA. Went in 2018 saw JD Martinez hit a HR over the Green Monster was really nice with electricity. Also they won WS later that year.   Missouri   Busch Stadium, St. Louis, MO. Been multiple times, and will probably be there in a couple weeks for a game since living here.   Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, MO. Actually went on a tour of the stadium before the game and got to see and hold a 2015 WS Ring.    Hammons Field, Springfield, MO. Texas League. Multiple and Cards Double A team. Nice Stadium. Went a lot as it was up the street from school the last 3 years.    New York   Citi Field, Queens, NY. 1 game, sadly was really raining but was really nice going there and loved the Apple in CF   Yankees Stadium, Bronx, NY. Got to sit right behind bullpens. Energetic and enjoyed seeing some historical aspects but still new Stadium.    Ohio   Great American Ballpark Cincinnati, OH- 2 games. Really like the park. Seemed like it is situated for family to come to and see. Like their club seats and special area for that.   Pennsylvania   Citizens Bank Park- Philadelphia, PA- Liked the open concept of the stadium there. easy to walk around. Loved the bullpen being stacked on each other.   Wisconsin   Miller Park. Really Outdated already. A/C was terrible since roof was closed. Even if didnt hate Brewers, I still would put park at bottom. Just did not seem like anybody cared when making it. It is same level to me as A's or TB's     Ontario Rogers Centre, Toronto, ON, CAD- Really interesting park. Enjoyed that a hotel is located in it. Found it funny you can bounce baseball on the field due to turf. Better bang for your buck than US parks. Food was cheap. Ended up getting 2 tickets 20 rows behind home plate for 50$ total. Would recommend, but never got to see it with roof open   So I have 11 MLB stadiums, 5 MiLB teams
