Seattle Mariners Ticket Availability:
The Mariners have for a long time drawn great crowds to Safeco Field, filling 2/3 of the stadium. Although tickets are generally available through the Mariners box office there is usually a good selection of the best seats are made available by brokers and season ticket holders on the secondary markets through reputable sites such as Ticket Network and Ticket Liquidator.
The Mariners are among the teams that price their tickets differently, depending on day of the week and opponent. Secondary brokers prices fluctuate on market conditions, and often times sell tickets for below face value.

Transportation/Parking:
Parking around the stadium can be difficult, so we recommend using public transit if possible. King County Metro and Sound Transit are a couple of the options, depending on where you are coming from. If you plan on driving to the game, it is recommended that you BUY YOUR PARKING IN ADVANCE ONLINE at one of the nearby private lots.


Best View at Safeco Field


Terrace Club Sections 220-240:
These seats around the plate offer a view similar to that of the announcers, allowing you to follow the action all over the field from an elevated view. They also come with slightly wider, padded seats and access to the Terrace Club Lounge, an indoor climate-controlled area behind these sections with upscale concessions, restrooms, and a full bar with plenty of HD TVs to make sure you don't miss a minute of the action. Additionally, you can get in-seat food and beverage service. Expect to pay $50-$75 for these seats, depending on opponent and day.

Lower Infield 121-124 and 136-139:
These are the sections right behind the Mariners and the visitors dugouts. Surprisingly, these seats can be found for as little as $50 depending on the game, but of course they increase for the lower rows closest to the dugout.

Lower Level Right Field 112-118 and Left Field 142-146:
A slightly cheaper alternative to the Lower Infield seats, they are past the dugouts down the foul lines and the price is about 20%-50% cheaper.

Best Value Seating for Mariners games


Mariners' games in general are fairly priced, considering the great stadium experience. However, the sections below tend to be the lowest priced:

Bleachers 190-195:
Classic centerfield bleacher experience with not too bad a view. Yes, you're far from the plate, but with tickets available in the $20 range on
Ticket Network and Ticket Liquidator you can't go wrong.

For under $20, you can get seats behind home plate, albeit on the 3rd level. The view from up here is not too high, so if you prefer to be closer to most of the action, these would be your choice over the bleacher seats. Sections 329-333 are the preferable sections up here, as they those directly around home plate, and if you can score seats in the first few rows in the $20 range, you'll be getting a great deal!

Best Seats for Families at Safeco Field

Safeco Field took families and children into consideration when it was built. In the Centerfield Plaza, you can find the Kids Clubhouse (store) and nearby section 191 is the Moose Den, a place where you can meet the Mariner Moose! Concourses are stroller friendly and there are family restrooms throughout the stadium. Additionally, behind section 128 (near home plate) is a nursing mothers lounge.

Alcohol Free Section 104:
This section in right-center field may appeal to some families. Being located in the centerfield area, it is close to section 191 (Moose Den) and the Centerfield Plaza.

Lower Level Right Field 112-118:
These are moderately priced sections down the right field line, about equally spaced between section 128, where the nursing mother's lounge is, and the Centerfield Plaza, where the Moose Den and Kid's Clubhouse store are located. Also, being on the first level, there would be no need to climb or wait to get to the upper levels, so hauling all the family gear wouldn't be as daunting. Additionally, with the sun naturally to the south, these seats on the south side of the stadium tend to get a bit more shade than other lower level seats - of course, depending on the time of game and time of year.

Best Seats for the Social Scene


The 'Pen:
The Mariners website correctly summarizes this area as "a 9-inning party". Gates open 2.5 hours before gametime to allow the first 1000 fans to watch batting practice from this centerfield location and enjoy discounted beers up to 1 hour before gametime out here. It's also right next to both team's bullpens, so the opportunity to get autographs or batting practice homerun balls that land in the bullpen tossed to you by players. There's a full service cocktail lounge out here and some unique concession stands and a fire pit, so be sure to get out here early and enjoy the atmosphere. The area is accessible through either the Centerfield gate or stairs near section 152 or 187.

Hit it Here Cafe:
This is a bar/restaurant with ticketed/assigned seats (and walk up seats sometimes available) in rightfield on the 200 (Terrace) Level. Although it may lack the best view in the stadium, it does allow fans to sit with a bar rail in front of them, making it very comfortable to eat and drink while catching the game and socializing. There is a mixture of indoor seating, as well as outdoor seating. You can find more information, photos, and menus on the Mariners website.



Best Seats to Impress Guests


Key Bank Diamond Club 25,27,33,35:
In addition to large, padded seats in the first 8 rows directly behind home plate, upscale food and drinks are included in the price of the ticket (as well as in-seat wait service). You also get VIP Parking and access to the Key Bank Diamond Club, an exclusive area that doesn't get too crowded. Menus feature salads, a carving station, plenty of sides, and dessert. The view, the seats, and the food does not get better than this, and seats can be found for as low as $300.

All-Star Club:
These seats on the suite level down the right field line above sections 214-219 offer a decent view, outdoor seats as well as access to the All-Star Club, where the food is included in your ticket price. Menu options include appetizers, salads, carved meat, and desserts. There is a cash bar to serve your beverage needs. Expect to pay $150 or so per seat in the All-Star Club.

Best Seats for Catching Baseballs


Outfield Reserved Sections 102-109 or 150-151:
If you want to get a ball at a Mariners game, the best time to do it is during batting practice, when many balls are getting hit into the stands. The best advice is to get there when gates open; the centerfield gate opens 2½ hours before game time (giving the first 1000 fans access to the 'Pen in centerfield), one of the earliest opening times in the league. Other gates open 2 hours before game, giving access to the full park. Be aware that teams might not take batting practice before an afternoon game. Safeco Field is definitely not known as a hitters park, so there may be fewer homeruns to collect during batting practice here than other parks throughout the league. Still, this should not deter you from trying. You do not need a ticket for these sections to be here before the game, but do be respectful of those that do. Personally, I prefer the right field sections 106-108 over 150-151 in left field, simply because it tends to be less crowded and each ballhawk has a little more room to themselves.

Note also that if you are among the first to arrive in any of the outfield sections, there may already be balls in the seats from earlier batting practice - so as you approach these sections, you may want to keep an eye out for balls wedged in seats or sitting under a seat. Be sure to keep one eye on the batter, as well!

Best Seats for Autographs


Sections 140-142 (visitors) or 118-120 (Mariners):
The key to getting an autograph at a big league game is to be there early. Although the Centerfield gate opens 2 ½ hours before the game, access is really only granted to the outfield sections - which will help you get a batting practice ball, but not likely to help with autographs too much. However, at about 2 hours before game time, the rest of the stadium is open. You'll want to be near Sections 140-142 for visitors autographs and near 118-120 to try to get Mariners autographs.

Get near sections 140-142 early to get visitors autographs!
