Houston Rodeo Seating Guide

There are eight different seating levels at NRG Stadium, giving you plenty of options for finding the right seats at the Houston Rodeo. The good thing about the Houston Rodeo is that the concert stage is in the center of the stadium, making it nearly impossible to have a bad seat.

Lower 100-Level

The Best Seats at Houston Rodeo: Rows 1-8 in sections 123-130 and 103-110 are considered the best seats at the Houston Rodeo and are named the “action seats” for being the closest to both the rodeo and concert.

Other notable sections in the lower level for rodeo fans include sections 116-117, which are located directly behind the chutes.

200 & 400 Levels

Both the 200 & 400 Levels consist of suites, which are great for large groups of people.

300 Mezzanine

The Mezzanine level consists of sections in the 300s – and is considered the middle-level of seats. The Mezzanine level provides a great view and ticket prices for the level typically have great value when it comes to getting the biggest bang for your buck.

500 Loge

The Loge seats consist of the 500-level sections that surround the stadium. This upper level is located right above the 400-level suites and still provides a great view of the rodeo.

The Grid Iron level consists of the 600-level sections that are the second highest up.

700/800 Upper Level – The 700 & 800 level seats are the seats farthest away from the action but they are also the cheapest seats for the Houston Rodeo. The 700-level seats are along the end zone of the stadium, while the 800-level are along the sidelines.
