Club seating

Club level seating is a special section of seating in modern sports stadiums.

The Club Level is usually located towards the middle of the stage of seating sections, above the lower deck but below the upper deck. They are usually right next to the Luxury Boxes, either right above, right below, or sandwiched between two levels of Luxury Boxes. Club Level seating is considered as higher class than sitting anywhere else in the arena, but lower class compared to the Luxury Boxes.

Unlike the Luxury Boxes, most club levels do not wrap entirely around the arena. Some club levels stop at a certain point, giving way to an expansion of the Mezzanine, while others give way to lower class Luxury Boxes (such as "Party Suites"). A notable exception to this is Emirates Stadium in London, which has a complete tier of club seating.

Club Levels allow fans multiple levels of entertainment. Club Level seating is open to the elements, as opposed to the entirely enclosed luxury boxes, which gives more of an outdoors impression at roofless and open-roof stadiums and arenas. Club Level seating is normally bought on a contract basis to allow for maximum profit on the part of the stadium.

The Club Level provides fans with special access to an indoor part of the arena exclusive to fans with special tickets. These areas are air conditioned and allow access to special restaurants, merchandise stands, and lounge areas of the stadium that are not otherwise available. Concession stands and vendors on the Club Level also often offer different menus than in other stands to give more of a special feel to the Club. These areas are closed off to the rest of the stadium, and they usually can only be accessed through the exclusive, private club entrances.
