Q. I can use the Red Sox site to see pictures from every section, why is this any different?
A. The pictures provided by the Red Sox are helpful but do not provide an accurate view from every seat in the stadium. They are often taken from the best viewpoint in every section and, as such, avoid any problems.
This site provides a very accurate view from each seat and, as such, shows precise information. Obstructed areas are displayed on a 2D map along with a pointer to your exact location in the stadium, distance to the field, distance to home plate, a simple 3D view from the seat, walkway traffic warnings, and difficult view warnings. Obstructions include poles, metal screens, walls, and netting.
Q. Is every seat in Fenway Park represented?
A. No, but there are currently over 36,000 seats represented. The Red Sox were busy over the winter (2011) ripping out the entire Right Field Box seats and renovating that entire section. These changes are now in place on our site. Otherwise, there are still some minor adjustments to sections that still need to take place. Sections that are missing are the EMC Club, and the private seating sections. There are also a few handicap seats that have yet to be added.
Q. How accurate are the views?
A. We have worked diligently to provide a very accurate view from each seat. Poles and other obstructions will be represented on the overview map within a few feet of its actual location. When you see an obstruction displayed on the field that blocks home plate, the pitcher's mound, or other features, you can expect that it will be very close to the actual view. Try printing the page from the printer view and compare it when you go to the stadium. We appreciate hearing back from you and welcome any corrections that need to be made.
Q. What is that red area displayed on the field map?
A. The red area on the field represents the obstructed area of the field. These are solid obstructions such as poles and walls. Netting and screens are colored differently because you can see through them. They are placed on the map so that you are aware of their location but not considered an obstruction.
Q. Why are certain features, like netting, missing from the 3D views?
A. The 3D views are very simple but very accurate with regards to the location in the stadium and poles. Netting and screens have not yet been added to these views. They are mainly provided to give a perspective from each seat. The 2D overview map contains a more complete representation of the view.
Q. I have a ticket for Section 7-B4, row K, seat 3. What's the location of that ticket?
A. The Red Sox and other ticket sellers will attempt to guide you to the right section by including the Grandstand section that is directly above it. For the above example, it means that Right Field Box 4 is directly below Grandstand section 7. The B stands for Box (Right Field Box, Field Box or Loge Box). We think this is more confusing and would prefer that they would simply state, Right Field Box 4 without the Grandstand section.
Q. How does Precise Seating make money?
A. We have added some links to Ace Ticket and other ticket vendors for fans who wish to purchase tickets. The use of these links combined with an actual ticket purchase pays our business a small commission on the ticket sale. If you feel that the use of this site has benefited you, we encourage you to make use of our links when purchasing a ticket. There is no additional cost associated with this action. This is an easy method to give back to Precise Seating and help keep the site free.
Q. Is there a way to donate to Precise Seating?
