Be a part of history when the inaugural NHL Stadium Series comes to Yankee Stadium in Bronx, N.Y., for the highly anticipated matchup between the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils on Jan. 26, 2014. Read on for seating, parking, and other general information regarding the event.
Yankee Stadium Seating Information
If standing at home plate looking out, the hockey rink is located just behind the pitcher's mound and extends from roughly first base to third base. For the Rangers-Devils game, seating will be available throughout the venue, including in the bleachers and grandstands, which offer seats the furthest away from the ice. Keep in mind that the glass and boards will still be present, so various lower level or field-level sections inside Yankee Stadium may have obstructed views for the hockey game, which will be denoted in any "Notes" included with ticket listings.
In addition to standard seating, the marketplace may also have suites and clubs available for purchase, as Yankee Stadium comes equipped with a wealth of premium seating options including the Legends Suite, Champions Suite, Delta Sky360 Suite, Jim Beam Suite, and other Luxury Suites. Each boasts its own set of amenities such as climate control, premium food and beverage options, TVs, private restrooms, preferred parking, and more.
Note: Typically, Grandstand Sections 407A and 433 are designated as alcohol-free seating. No alcohol is sold in these sections and guests may not bring any alcohol into the sections, either. This may or may not be in effect for the Rangers/Devils game as well.
Yankee Stadium General Information
Re-entry is generally not permitted unless in the case of a special circumstance. Guests are allowed to bring one small, soft-sided bag inside the venue, which will be inspected by stadium staff. Some prohibited items include coolers, video cameras, air horns, and laptops. Outside food is allowed as long as it is brought in a clear plastic grocery bag, and clear factory-sealed plastic water bottles are typically permitted as well. Banners and signs are usually permitted provided they are appropriate, free of advertisements, and not attached to posts of any kind. Non-professional cameras are typically allowed as well.
Yankee Stadium Parking and Transportation Information
All parking lots and garages near the stadium will charge varying fees on site. Spots are typically available on a first-come, first-served basis. Those wishing to drive to the NHL Stadium Series matchup can get to Yankee Stadium via northbound and southbound exits from the Major Deegan Expressway (I-87). However, it is strongly suggested that fans attending the Rangers vs. Devils game use public transportation to get to the venue, as it is considered the easiest and most convenient option.
