Saitama Stadium 2002 is the Urawa Reds’ home stadium.
I have been watching a lot of games from various seats. So I’m going to show photos about how games can be seen from each seat.
Name Of Place in Saitama Stadium 2002
- Main Upper Area
- Back Upper Area
- Main Lower Area
- Back Lower Area
- North and South Area
1. Main Upper Area
We can watch overall move of players like a bird’s eye view.
Main Upper North Side
A photo below show a view from the edge of the north area.
The next photo shows how Choreography at the North area be seen from this seat.
2.Back Upper Area
Same as the 1.Main Upper Seats, this area provides an overall view.
Back Upper Center Area
It is one of the best way to watch overall movement of players. This photo was taken from 30th seats from the edge of the Back Upper area.
Back Upper North Side
You can feel enthusiastic support of Urawa Reds’ supporters.
It should be noted that seats across this area are close to Away supporter’s seats. Therefore I do not recommend if you want to sit near Reds supporters.
Back Upper South Side
Those pictures were taken from Back Upper South Side.
Away Supporters are relatively near this area.
3. Main Lower Area
It would be better to get a Lower Seat ticket if you want to watch players closely.
Main Lower Center Area
A scene before starting a game.
Main Lower North Side
You will be in front of the bench.
Players warming up and Coaches managing the game are in front of you.
Main Lower South Side
Please note that the edge of Main lower area at the South side is next to the away seats.
4. Back Lower Area
Back Lower Center Area
Like Main Lower Seat, impressive scenes will be in front of you.
We need to care about rain if we sit in the front-half (but depending on wind) of the lower area.
Stadium’s Roof covers seats as shown below.
Back Lower North Side
South side Goal can be seen as below.
Back Lower North (upper area)
Back Lower South Side (middle area)
Middle roof will be in your sight when you sit at the upper area of Lower Seats.
5. North and South Area
If you want to join enthusiastic supporters, you can come to North Side Stand.
Supporters fight with Urawa Reds Players together.
The photos below are from South Side Stand.
If you sit at an upper seat of South Stand, your view will be like below.
View from lower seats here can be seen as below.
