Petco Park Seating Chart
Petco is a brand new ballpark. It has fewer seats than Qualcomm; the
former home of the Padres. Fewer seats means better site lines and
since no football will be played in this park, there are a lot of
seats closer to the action and laid out with solely baseball in mind.
For 453.4 million dollars it's a safe bet that they built Petco to
be a nice park to watch a game in.
All seats in the park include cup-holders. 32% of the seating is between
the foul poles (14,828 seats) as opposed to 11% (6,974 seats) between
the poles at Qualcomm Stadium.
Comfort is key at the new facility, there are plenty of restrooms
and concession stands throughout each level of the ballpark which
include the Field Level the Toyota Terrace Level and the Upper Deck.
Petco seating is arranged by odd numbered sections on one side of
the park and even numbered sections on the other. The Padres, home
team or first base side of the park includes only odd numbered sections
1-329 while the visitors or third base side of the park contains sections
2-328. Section 300 is directly behind home plate in the upper level
of the park while sections A-L are the Omni Hotel Premier Club sections
behind home plate and between the bases.
The Best Seats in the House
Rated - Sony Dugout Club seats and Omni Hotel Premier Club seats
are the best of the best in Petco Park. The Sony Dugout Club sections
1-6 offer wider seats and waitress service. Fans here won't miss any
of the action with their own server running to get popcorn for them.
With the first row of the Dugout Club sitting only 45 feet away from
home plate; seats here are right on top of the action. Omni Hotel
Premier Club sections A-L offer many of the same amenities as the
Dugout Club sections, such as wider seats and waitress service. Seats
here are an excellent choice if one is looking for a price break from
seats in the Dugout Club and still desires the same VIP treatment.
Rated - Field Boxes in sections 101-117 and section 119 are closer
to the field than Omni Club seats. These sections lack the waitress
service of other sections but there are plenty of vendors roaming
the isles with the usual ballpark refreshments. Sections 101-108 are
between the bases while sections 109-117 and 119 are down the lines.
Depending on preference, Field Boxes offer a great view of the action
close to the field from either between the bases or a bit past the
Rated - Toyota Terrace Infield sections 201-210 offer a great
overall view of the field as well as the entire park and some nice
views of the outlying San Diego area. These are club level sections
with access to restaurants and lounges not available to those with
seats elsewhere in the venue. Club 19, Baja Bristo, The Wind &
Sea Lounge and Coronado's are just a few places one can spend time
if they hold a ticket in one of these sections. With so much to see
and do around this level, even the slow games go by fast. This is
a great section to choose when entertaining guests of all sorts.
Rated - For fans that don't mind sacrificing a premium view of
the game in exchange for more money in their pockets at the end of
the night, the following sections may be just the ticket. Field Reserve
seats in sections 113-127 offer views of the game from the 100 level.
Although they are further down the lines than the higher priced seating,
these seats are in prime foul ball territory and close to the field.
Toyota Reserved seats in sections 211-223 offer the same "slightly-less-than-perfect"
views of the game from down the lines but considering the included
access to all the 200 level restaurants and lounges, the money saved
on the ticket price might be well spent at the bar! For an even further
price break and a between the bases view of the game, Upper Infield
Reserve seats in sections 300-312 offer a nice match of price versus
view. These seats are in the lower rows of the upper deck and offer
a nice alternative to views from the lower level down the line sections.
Not only do they offer a between the bases perspective of the action,
the views of San Diego from these sections are an added treat.
Rated - For premium series and post season games that fill up
the park the following sections may be the only way into the park
without breaking the bank. Upper Deck seats in sections 300-328 are
at the top of the park and while the view from the field is more distant
than lower sections the fresh air and surrounding ballpark scenery
makes for a great bargain during the expensive series games. Seats
in sections 300-312 will cost a bit more than seats in sections 315-328
due to there view from between the bases. Another alternative for
those on a budget are the outfield sections. The 100 level seats in
sections 126-134 and 129-137 will cost a bit more than 200 level seats
but the chance to take home a souvenir home run ball is higher in
these sections too! Sections 226-230 and 225-227 are the higher outfield
sections. With a bit more of a price break from the 100 level outfield
seats, one can enjoy fresh air, an outfield view of the game and the
fact that they've gotten into the park at some of the lowest possible
prices. If tickets are not to be found anywhere else in the park,
standing room only seats may be available. If standing room seats
are not an option the Picnic Terrace and Bleachers sections on either
side of center field may have some seats left for sale at bargain
prices. Again one gets a view of the game from an outfield perspective,
plenty of fresh air and a little cash left in their pockets for a
hot dog during the game.
