These seats are just as they sound, bleacher seats with no backs. If you get uncomfortable quickly or have a bad back, we highly recommend seats along the sidelines that have backs.

Sitting in sections 16-21 as well as 2-7 along the sidelines offer “seat backs,” more legroom than the bleachers as well as better lines of site for the game.

Although seats with backs tend to be more expensive than bleachers, they will be more comfortable watching the three-hour event.

Parking at the Rose Bowl

Parking at the Rose Bowl
Parking at the Pasadena Rose Bowl, especially on New Years Day is notoriously horrific. The 100,000 capacity stadium sells out every year, and that is a lot of cars parking and leaving the game at the same time.

If possible, we highly recommend buying a parking pass in advance of your event, and if the Rose Bowl VIP parking pass is available, they are an even better option. If you are driving to the Pasadena Rose Bowl, arrive as early as possible to avoid delays.
