Croke Park Classic - Stadium Seating

 

No one wants to travel thousands of miles for a football game only to sit in the far corner of the upper deck. Fans traveling on the Official Penn State Tour are guaranteed the best seats in the house to cheer on the Nittany Lions. Keep in mind, Croke Park was not constructed with American football in mind and sightlines are very different from stadiums in the U.S. That’s why we scouted out the best viewing areas in the park and secured those seats just for you. All tickets will be in the official Penn State seating sections.

 

Four- and five-star packages include premium club seats, which have access to a range of fully serviced indoor facilities like bars, lounges, cafés, restaurants, merchandise shops and more – all within a few steps of your seats. These indoor areas feature plasma TVs, phone-charging stations, vending services, ATMs and Wi-Fi access. Fully covered and offering unique vantage points of the field, premium seats are connected all the way around Croke Park Stadium.

 

Those fans purchasing an official package prior to December 31, 2013 will be assigned seats based on Nittany Lion Club priority points. For fans who are not NLC members, seating will be determined by the date the travel package was purchased. After December 31, 2013, game ticket assignments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.
