For a great view of the action with a substantially cheaper price tag, look to seats in sections 110-111. Keep your budget in mind at this point. The lower you go in the bowl, the more expensive you’ll find the tickets. For the true basketball fan that just wants to watch the game, this is the best bet.
Family outings are have always been an integral part of sports, so if you’re ready to bring the family, we recommend sections 401-403. These upper deck seats have easy access without giving up too much of the game experience.
Sometimes, you want to go to the game, but the only focus is the price. That’s fine too! You can find inexpensive tickets when you look in the right places and search for the right times. We recommend sections 424-427. These upper-level seats also serve as the student sections for college basketball but clock in as some of the cheapest in the arena.
For Concerts: Almost everyone agrees that the best place to enjoy a concert is on the floor right in front of the stage. If being on the floor is not your cup of tea, you can find a head-on view of the stage from sections 105-107. Just like with the sports seats, keep your budget in mind when looking at the head-on tickets.
In Capital One Arena, the best options for a mix of price and views of the stage are sections 112, 101, and 121. You get a blend of good proximity to the stage, excellent sound quality, and of course, much easier access in and out of your seats.
Pushing further back to sections 406-410, you’ll find some of the cheapest tickets without sacrificing the great views. If the price is your biggest concern, we suggest starting there and working your way around the upper deck to find the seats you want.
What To Expect When You Arrive
Security and Bag Policy: All attendees are subject to metal detector screening, visual inspection, and a thorough bag inspection at the entrance. Bags over 14”x14”x6” are not allowed. For a full list of policies and what to expect, see the A-Z Guide on the arena’s website.
Parking: Parking may be the biggest challenge to your visit to Capital One Arena. Because there is such a lack of parking, the arena partnered up with SpotHero, a nationwide service for online parking reservations, to help guests purchase guaranteed spots at local lots and garages. We recommend utilizing the excellent public transportation options or rideshare services like Uber and Lyft.
Capital One Arena Experience
If you’re ready for a meal before or after the show, we recommend checking out Penn Commons, which is almost directly across from the arena. You’ll find great food at a reasonable price. Plus, the place stays open late on the weekends in case you want to keep the night going!
Capital One Arena sits close to amazing food and lodging choices, so you’re taken care of before, during, and after the show. Don’t miss out on your chance to live the experience too.
