I was just on the Ticketmaster site and noticed something I had not noticed before. Not sure what it is like in other sections at THF but I just noticed on the Upper East side the seat numbering is not consistent.
For the games I've been at so far I've been in Section 217 - on the upper east side and in that section the seat numbers start at 1 at the north end of the section - closest to section 216 - and end at seat 30 in each row at the south end of the section - closest to Section 218. The same is true for sections 215, 216 and 218.
But oddly for Sections 212, 213 and 214 the seat numbering is the reverse of that - at least it is on the Ticketmaster 'Choose Your Seat App'. In those three sections Seat 1 is at at the south end of the section closer to the higher numbered section - and seat 30 is at the north end of the sections.
So for the next home game the seats I have are in Section 213 and are seats 27 and 28. I had just assumed those seats would be towards the Section 214 side of the section which would mean I was going to be at about the 25 yard line. But instead it turns out those seats are over near section 212 at about the ten yard line. Not a big deal but a bit of a surprise and truth be told a little disappointing.
I wonder what the reasoning might be.
