For the last time ever, two teams will compete for the BCS National Championship on Jan. 6, 2014. Serving as the game's host venue for the fourth and final time, the historic Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, Calif., will be rockin' as sports fans bid farewell to the BCS format, which will be replaced with a new four-team College Football Playoff next season.
Rose Bowl Stadium Seating Information
Oval in shape, the sprawling Rose Bowl Stadium offers great views from virtually every seat for those taking in the 2014 BCS National Championship game. In navigating the venue's map on this page to pick out the perfect seats, take note of a few details featured below.
For starters, the stadium is broken down simply by section numbers, as opposed to varying levels, while rows are designated differently depending on the section. Lettered rows are considered to be "lower level" seats, while numbered rows are in the "upper level" and contain the concourse and seats with chair backs.
The video board is located behind Sections 10-11, while scoreboards can be found by Sections 12-13 and 26-27, and the structure housing the press box, suites, sky boxes, and accessible seating extends behind Sections 16-21 on the west side of the stadium.
Check out the breakdown of Rose Bowl Stadium sections and rows here:
Lettered Rows (extending away from the field): H-A, K-A, L-A, N-A, Q-A
Numbered Rows (start behind the lettered rows): 1-77 in every section
Rose Bowl Stadium General Information
Most traditionally prohibited items also apply to guests entering Rose Bowl Stadium, including noisemakers, banners and signs, umbrellas, coolers, and video cameras. Non-professional cameras are usually permitted, as are strollers as long as they are stored once inside the venue. Smoking is strictly prohibited.
Rose Bowl Stadium Parking and Transportation Information
Though several parking lots surround Rose Bowl Stadium, only Lot H has been designated as a general public lot. Spaces are limited, so guests are encouraged to arrive early to ensure a spot. All parking both on site and nearby will likely charge a fee, and some lots may be cash only. Rose Bowl Stadium lots will close 90 minutes following the conclusion of the game and overnight parking is strictly prohibited.
Fans planning on driving to the BCS National Championship can utilize the 110, 134, or 210 Freeways to get to the stadium.
Public transit also is generally an option, and can be utilized either by the Gold Line Light Rail Service, Metrolink, or a taxi service. All three will require a transfer or the use of a shuttle, which typically drops guests off right at the stadium. However, services are subject to change for the BCS National Championship, and more event-specific details may be available as the game approaches.
Rose Bowl Stadium Gate Times
Generally, gates open approximately three hours before events begin, but arrangements for the BCS National Championship game may differ in the case of a special event. More specific information may be available on your game ticket or by contacting venue staff directly.
Rose Bowl Stadium Accessibility
Rose Bowl Stadium is fully accessible from the moment guests arrive, as the venue offers three different areas for accessible parking in Lots B, D, and F. Proof of a valid placard or license plate must be provided in order to enter the lots. Spaces are limited in each lot, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Inside the venue, a vast array of accessible amenities will be available for such things as concessions, restrooms, drinking fountains, entrance gates, will call, and suites. Accessible seating can be found on the Concourse and Field Levels, and the option to purchase companion seating is limited to one per person.
