Lucas Oil Stadium Basketball Seating Details
Lucas Oil Stadium last hosted the NCAA Men’s Final Four in 2015. Here are some general tips when buying tickets to a men’s basketball game inside of a football stadium.
- Row breakdowns for the Final Four are as follows: Single, Double, and Triple letter rows will indicate that they are within the Riser sections that are temporarily put on the field in order to go up to the court and extend back to the regular stadium seating. Single letter rows (A, B, C, etc.) will be closest to the court, and behind those will be double letter rows (AA, BB, etc), followed by triple letter (AAA, BBB), and then numbered rows where the permanent stadium seating begins above those
- Plenty of good seats to be had with the temporary seating system in place around all four sides of the raised court
- Fans don’t want to be in the permanent seats in the corners or in the 300 level seating in the end zones, especially since there is not a video board above center court (however, one could be temporarily added for the event).
What Items Can I Bring Into Lucas Oil Stadium
Fans are allowed to bring a small clutch bag or purse that are roughly the size of a hand, or a clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag that is no greater than 12″ by 6″ by 12″.
What fans may NOT bring into the stadium is a bit more clear. Prohibited items at the Final Four are as follows:
- Weapons or fireworks
- Video cameras (at the discretion of each event promoter)
- Poles/sticks of any kind
- Large purses, bags and backpacks
- Bottles, cans, liquid containers and coolers (except for guests with special medical or dietary needs)
- Food not dispensed by Lucas Oil Stadium concessionaires
- Objects that obstruct another patron’s view of the playing field
- Horns, bells, whistles, bullhorns, megaphones, klaxons, boom boxes and/or other noisemakers
- Animals (except assistive animals for guests with disabilities)
- Anything that creates a nuisance or disruption
- Selfie Sticks
How Many Fans Will Lucas Oil Stadium Allow for the 2021 NCAA Men’s Final Four
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the NCAA Tournament has officially announced a limited fan attendance number that’s 25% of the venue’s standard capacity, based on policies set forth by local officials. This will be made possible through limiting fans to sit together within pods that allow for safe social distancing. There will be roughly 17,500 people allowed to attend this year’s Final Four in Indianapolis.
The Best Seats at the Final Four
The best seats for the Final Four at Lucas Oil Stadium are located in sections 139-141, and 112-114. These extended men’s tournament sections will have very little slope, so it is important to note that the higher number rows are much further back from the court than a traditional NBA Arena.
Floor Sections 1 through 4 that are located on the east and west ends of the court along the baselines are among the closest seats to the court. These sections will also have very little slope and are usually reserved for the student sections.
As a general rule of thumb, when searching for tickets to the Final Four, you want to be as close to center court as possible. For example, I would rather sit in the Club (C) 200s level or 300 level near mid court than sit in the 100 level behind one of the baskets.
The Worst Seats at the Final Four
Football stadiums were not originally designed to host basketball games, so there are certain areas within the venue that we don’t recommend sitting in if your budget allows.
- Avoid the temporary (riser) 100 level corner sections (because of the lack of elevation)
- Avoid the 300 level end zone sections
For an idea on what the view from your seat will look like (although it’s designed for football), check out Lucas Oil Stadium seat views.
Remember, a basketball court is 94ft by 50ft or 31.3 by 16.6 yards. So essentially the court will be between the 35 yard lines, which is why the standard end-zone seats are not recommended.
Where Are the Designated Fan Sections for the 2021 Final Four?
In normal years, the NCAA has designated fan sections for each team playing. We believe there will be some sort of socially-distanced means of keeping fans of the same teams together this year, but we’ll provide this information as soon as it’s available!
Where Are the Student Sections for the 2021 Final Four?
The student sections for each university will be designated for students of the participating teams only, and although the NCAA has yet to formally announce it for this year’s 2021 March Madness, the student sections will likely be located in front of the End Zone sections and their risers behind the four floors sections.
Final Four Seat Number Information
The Lucas Oil Stadium seat numbers go from right to left if you’re looking at the court from your seats. This means that seat number 1 will always be on the aisle next to the adjacent section with the lower section number. So seat number 1 in section 213 will be next to the highest numbered seat in section 212 next to it, and so on.
