3 Citizens Bank Park Seating Tips
Posted by Kurt Smith
It’s not hard to find a decent spot from the Citizens Bank Park seating chart. More than most teams, the Phillies price their seats about right, given the distance from home plate and acrophobic concerns.
Here are three seating suggestions for varying budgets courtesy of Ballpark E-Guides.
Citizens Bank Park Seating, Tip #1) The Hall of Fame Club. I don’t know if I would pay full price for Hall of Fame Club seats…the food isn’t included like at some ballparks…but if you can score a deal on SeatGeek or somewhere, go for it. (Legal bit: that’s an affiliate link you just passed. Thanks for your support!)
Hall of Fame Club seats are wider and padded, and you have a terrific bird’s eye view of the field. Not to mention access to a climate-controlled lounge with numerous bars and food stands, including a Chickie’s and Pete’s. (In theory that should mean shorter lines for crab fries, but that isn’t always the case.)
Climate-controlled areas are also great for those chilly April (or March) evenings in Philadelphia. It can get cold here.
Citizens Bank Park Seating, Tip #2) Baseline Seats. I recommend staying low at Citizens Bank Park, and the Baseline seats in the corners especially are a pretty nice deal. If you score tickets in Sections 111 or 136, you’ll save a few bucks over the folks one section over.
I prefer the first base side for its straight ahead view of the left field Big Board, but on hot summer nights the sun will be bearing down on you the first couple of innings, so keep that in mind. Bring sunglasses.
Citizens Bank Park Seating, Tip #3) The Terrace Deck. For small budgets, your best bet is in the upper deck Terrace, in sections 419-422 if you can since they face the field directly behind home plate. There are lower seats at a lower price, but they are very far from the action.
These seats are very high up, with the suites, club level and open concourses pushing everything higher. The angle is good so the view isn’t bad, but be wary if you’re acrophobic…also, you need to ascend quite a few steps to get to these, so keep that in mind if anyone in your group has mobility issues.
There’s three good spots depending on your budget for a Phillies game. Stay tuned, I’ve got more…
