Which seats are covered with Roof in Saitama Stadium2002?
Those who are to watch a soccer game at the stadium may want to know it. I’m going to share some photos showing areas that need a raincoat, as I have been watching games in the stadium both on fines days and rainy days.
Seats under Roof
Saitama Stadium is composed of six seating areas.
-North Side Stand
-South Side Stand
-Main Upper Seats
-Main Lower Seats
-Back Upper Seats
-Back Lower Seats
Let’s see a photo below to understand how a roof covers seating areas.
Main and Back Upper Seats are under roofs, while there is no roof above both North and South Side Stands.
Whether a raincoat is necessary or not depends on which seat you chose. Let’s view some photos for more details.
Photos on rainy days
The photo below show a situation on a rainy day.
It looks that the rain falls to the lower half of the Main Lower Seats. Also some of supporters in the upper half of the Main Lower Seats seating near an aisle wore raincoats.
Next, it is a zoomed photo of Back Lower seats.
Based on my experiences, the lower half seat of Lower area is affected by rain falling. But it doesn’t, in this photo. It appears that the wind direction affects whether seats around the half line of Lower Seats are to be wet.
I recommend that a raincoat should be prepared when you buy a ticket around an aisle at the half line of Main/Back Lower Seats.
For more information, a photo below is about another rainy day.
Finally let’s see another photo in a rainy day.
Main Upper and Back Upper Seats are under Roofs.
A raincoat is necessary for both North and South Side Stand.
A raincoat is necessary for the lower half of both Back & Main Lower Seats.
Please note that even if the upper area of Main/Back Lower Seats, seats around the half line of Lower Seats are prone to wet.
